POLICE have handed a campervan driver a ticket – for travelling too slowly.
If this was me I’d be challenging this ticket.
Poor reporting by the local rag.
That stretch of the road is a 40 mph limit.
I kind of was actually, only the first 2 posts and the first part of the newspaper reports were showing on my desktop computer.Unless you're reading a different paper than me, it says it reached 36 mph in a 50 mpg limit. It was in the outside lane and a vehicle undertook it. Both were given tickets for driving without due care and attention. Artistic licence for the rag that printed it. It wasn't given for driving too slow
Tailgating ,dam most lorries I pass are sniffing each other’s arse
I call that anticipation ...We have a bypass around our town which is a mile long and has two lanes going up a hill between islands. Many old dears get in the right hand lane at the bottom of the hill because they intend to turn right at the top and do 30 mph in a 60 mph zone. Very frustrating for everyone else!
I was shadowed by a driver who never moved out of the middle of three lanes which at one point became the third lane of a four lane stretch.Sounds more like lane hogging then speed. It’s been on the news that the police are cracking down on people who just sit in the middle lane when the inside lane is empty.
Not quite. If the gap into which you would return is shorter than a safe distance (100 yards+ at 70mph added to whatever you leave behind for the vehicle you have overtaken) then there's no point in pulling in. And on a busy motorway that scenario can go on for a number of miles. If you choose to pull in you will immediately have to slow to the speed of the traffic in that lane making the whole manoeuvre pointless.As long as it takes to overtake a vehicle!
