We mentioned it a while ago but forgot to post on the thread and now can't find it and being around two grumpy old men at the weekend it got brought up again.
What you may ask; lane discipline!!
We all moan about the motorways when you get idiots sat in the middle lane but you are able to go round them in the correct lane. But what would happen if you get Mr A in the third lane sat at 65mph, Mr B sat in the middle lane at 55mph and the inside lane is clear? Doing the right thing you'd move to the outside lane to go past but if everyone did this you'd be causing congestion and a knock on effect if everyone stuck to this rule.
But if you didn't and went down the inside lane and Mr Policeman happened to be behind you, you can be sure you'd be pulled for undertaking. Why not pull the other for not reading roads correctly and not driving as they should and have been taught?
My pet hate is and if any of you have visited the depths of Cornwall/Plymouth will know as you come off the motorway it goes into four lanes for the A30 and A38 but the first sign is two miles from when you need to do anything and everyone moves over as they neglect to read the '2 miles' part. I saw someone last pull in front of a car about 2 foot from it and the inside lane is near enough always clear.
But then when you get on to the dual A30 which I use frequently for work I notice how people will overtake then pull back in to the inside lane; well 90% of the time, occasionally you'll see someone stay overtake another a bit further up then move back in leaving the outside lane free to be used properly. So why isn't this lane discipline carried on to out motorways?
