    Lane two club still about

    Okey I will be brave, as I can't please everybody. Just wondering if anybody else noticed this on the news last night? The presenter was talking about the lack of cars on the road, then q the film of a empty motorway. I then see two cars bombing up the motorway, in lane TWO. No other traffic on the motorway, and nothing in front of them either. What was all that about? I have never understood the lane hoggers.

    The laziness of some drivers is infuriating at the best of times! "Oh the left lane filters off in 5 miles so I'm going to bimble along in the middle lane like a "

    They just don't have the first idea about the Highway code in relation to motorways. They really pee me off big time and it makes me wish I was still in the traffic unit.

    I have the pleasure of still working nights. I go down the M3 and basically I can count on one hand the rest of the traffic I can see, and half of them are sitting in the middle lane. As I am in no rush to get to work I have the cruise control on 70 and I still catch them up. Where are the police when you need them.

    Admittedly not actually "correct", but if you are on an empty motorway, admittedly rare, and the first lane is worn out and rutted, one could use the next lane until you see someone in your mirrors, moving over so as not to obstruct anyone catching up with/wanting to pass you.

    When there is normal traffic levels, driving by the rules is essential.

    I agree corbeliere. I don't drive as much as i used to. Manley because it is not an enjoyable experience anymore. My last journey down to Exeter on the M5 I actuality saw a young lady in lane 2 texting Yes TEXTING. That's when I said to her in doors that must be obeyed, it's time a gave up driving!! I'm only 60.....ok 62.

    I have heard it said that you can tell a person's job by the way they drive - folks always cutting others up = hairdressers; folks driving out by the middle of the road = bus/lorry drivers. Funny, I didn't know we needed so many gynaecologists in this country........

    I was driving down the A46 last night, again the road was completely empty except for one driver in my far distant review hogging the outside lane.

    Absolutely mindless.
