why oh why do drivers insist on using the middle lane of a motorway when the inside(lane 1) is empty....
on approaching this driver when im in lane one change lanes to lane 3 and back again
undertake them and break the law...
give them the stare as i pass on any side..
what else hacks people off on the motorway
I always go round them the proper way. Until I get my rocket launchers fitted anyway.
on way home some idiot in a Jeep sat inlane 3 for 2 mile with lots of cars sitting behind them...please note i am not saying what sex the driver was
If they're doing 70 in the middle lane, you shouldn't be going any faster than that, so there's no need to overtake them
If, however, you wish to break the law by going faster than that, then you might as well do it in the slow lane.
My biggest bugbear is drivers who moan about speed cameras.
You don't have a god-given right to drive as fast as you like - obey the speed limit, and you won't get any fines or points on your licence.
Wilkie (three points)
as i live in Glasgow the chance of going at great speeds is very limited--but not unheard off,i always though we had 2 overtaking lanes(lane 2,3)
i get annoyed with those big signs that o over the road giving information, the whole motorway slows to rad them and they say,
'take a break when tired'.....
they should say
'reading these signs causes accidents'
who hogs the middle lane more
men or women or does it depend on the car they drive
what about the sign
"check you fuel "
"wear a seatbelt"
or the worse when its slow
"traffic slow for 6 mile" (this one i saw this morning)
OOoh Wilkie - its not fast middle and slow ! Its just inner middle and outer or something..
Gotta be safer to go round them the right way than undertake. If they're hogging the middle lane then they're a crap driver and I wouldnt put it past them to pull in without looking.
It may be that the Highway Code has been updated since then, though.
You mean you don't get updated copies and read them? Tut, tut. You should.
One of my pet peeves (I have many, being a grumpy old man) is drivers who crawl away from traffic lights. I don't expect rubber burning, screeching starts, but brisk progress would be a vast improvement and give a few other cars a chance to get through the lights too.
what about people sitting at lights totally oblivious that they have changed
They're country folk, Jamie. They've probably not seen traffic lights before so they sit and watch the whole cycle.
i thought the "farmers weekly" would have an article of what the shiney lights mean
