    Default Slow and slower

    Just got back from a weekend away. On friday it took me four and a half hours to travel 120 miles up the M6. I spent the time wondering where all our tax money goes. Certainly not on roads that's for sure.
    Sad fact is , this is now the norm.
    Good job the mrs took my mind off the stress when we got to the hotel.

    Yes, it's amazing what a good game of Scrabble can do to ease stress. Did you or the missus win?

    It' s because most British drivers are shi-ite. Most sit in the middle lane, don't look in mirrors, tailgate each other causing sudden braking, don't use indicators, lorries overtaking each other at 0.5mph speed difference etc etc etc etc.

    I expect I'll get loads of people saying "I don't do any of that!", but it is everywhere, you have to admit. I've lost count of the times I've nearly come a cropper coz some c*** hasn't indicated at a roundabout or jumped a red light!!

    Couldn't agree more. the way some drivers hog the middle lane is ****. I had to flash a couple to get out of the way on a recent trip down to Sheffield and I still do not know if they knew I was there. Wheres the police when you want one!!

    Nope, worst culprets are fast lane pratts, by that I mean the people that sit in the fast lane when there is nothing in front of them, and doing the same speed as the middle lane. Scumbag sales reps like me should be in front!!! lol
