    Default Keep Left Unless Overtaking

    We've probably all seen the motorway matrix signs with that message telling people to move back over to the left.

    Today I saw a new one between M1J23 and M1J22, and it was completely plain English. It simply said

    'Don't Hog The Middle Lane'.


    I thought it was brilliant in it's simplicity, and I had a quiet chuckle to myself (how sad), and they do actually work too.

    About time they used the sign's. What's the point in having them sat idle.
    In America they flash up wanted car's reg and colour etc.
    I do hate middle lane hogger's.

    Makes a change from telling you how many minutes to get to the next junction

    The signs near J24 can be a pain, must be programmed to come on with messages at set times. Tells you there is a queue when there's not

    Driving with Fogs on is against the law when not required though unlike hogging the middle lane, so why don't they send out fines and points to people they see doing it on the cameras?

    I normally like them.

    However, on a 3 line matrix why does it take up so much room with only one 'leg' detail?

    eg

    To J21 (M69)
    18 miles
    16 minutes

    Why not as much as possible? - eg

    To J21 - 18mins
    To J14 - 34mins
    To J7 - 65 mins


    Better IMO

    ^Agree with this. On the M3 North, just before J9 there are 2 matrix signs within 1/2 mile of each other and they both display a time to a different junction (A34 for M4 and M3 for M25). These could both be on one sign and the other used for other driver information.
