    Default 1 Lane Motorways

    >> RANT MODE ON <<

    Coming back from Pinewood Studios today up the M40 and the motorway was reduced to 1 lane. Was this due to.....

    Accident..... no
    Diversion.... again... no
    Roadworks... no
    Flooding...... nope
    Earthquake.. err... no
    Rubbernecking...... nope
    Breakdown.......... no
    Motorway Maintenance ...... no no no......

    The reason why the motorway was reduced to 1 lane was because of........












    ........... everyone refusing to move out of the OUTSIDE LANE............


    If we were in continental europe it would be perfect... everyone in one lane doing 60 mph !!

    But in this country... why is there 2 perfectly good lanes wide open and NOBODY USING THEM !!!!.... they are all stuck right up behind each other in the outside lane waiting for the guy in front to pull over !!... which they dont as they fear losing their place in the QUE !!!... and if they do pull over... they cant drive faster than anyone else cos they will get booked for undertaking... its all wrong !!

    PLEASE..... CHANGE THE MOTORWAY RULES SO WE CAN UNDERTAKE THESE *****......

    >>RANT MODE OFF<<

    Nice day isnt it ...

    I know I shouldn't, but I just go left and pass them all I'm not willing to sit in a mass queue waiting for some knobhead to move over.

    If people used motorways as they should be, you'd cut congestion at a stroke. Perhaps the Police (are there any left?) ought to deal with them for driving without due care, after all, they're obviously oblivious to those around them.

    Also, taking those stupid bluddy speed limiters off lorries would help no end, but proper policing would be needed to make sure the 'privelage' isn't abused.

    thats harsh 8 points and a fine all because of some pillock going to slow in a fast lane.

    why dont the person going to slow get the same sort of penaulty for going to slow.
    its these sort of people that cause accedents.

    i had one yesturday on the a1 over took a coach and then came into the slow lane to pull of and get stuck behind some numty doing 55mph, god was i swearing

    I just normally pull into the faster moving lane when traffic is queing. That generally means when all these nob heads are jumping on their brakes as they have no braking distance and drastically reduce the speed of the moving traffic I simply pass them on the inside.
    What else can I do?
    When I overtake the middle lane hoggers I certainly make a point of showing them the slow lane, usually by cutting my maouvere a bit fine & if they don't move over they'll be inches off my bumper. In this case I do miss the old flammer kit on my Cav turbo.

    I'd like to fit two high-powered paint ball guns either side of my fog lights.

    So any ****er gets in my way I can shoot them with the paint balls.

    Is that illegal ??
