The original recording of the Highway Code is available on YouTube, and is an excellent example of Anglican Chant; still used by some choirmasters I believe!

It is a worrying trend indeed. It concerns me that some people now seem unable to communicate except by using text speak, but it concerns me even more that some are so engrossed in social media that they will walk across a busy road without once lifting their eyes from their smartphones.
