  • Rules of the road ?

    Concerning motorway driving and the rules / law ?

    Apart from lane one the other lanes are 'overtaking lanes' therefore after overtaking you are supposed to return to the inside lane, but we dont

    Even on a quiet day when lane one is almost empty, drivers remain in the centre lane, and refuse to return to the inside lane, even though there is room to do so.

    Some other drivers dont like this, so undertake, and face the possibility of prosecution, but surely the law states that you should return to the inside lane after overtaking, and if there is room for someone to undertake you then there is room for you to return to the inner lane

    Why therefor do undertakers get prosecuted for undertaking, but the centre lane 'hoggers' get away scot free, when the highway code states you are supposed to return to the inner lane after completing your overtake ?

    Same goes for motorway 'joining lanes', they are supposed to give way, and join the motorway at the speed of the motorway traffic, but they dont, and expect you to move out of the way and change lanes or slow down to allow them access to the lanes, what has happened to the rules of the road (highway code) or is it just me ?

        All I can say is that 2 wrongs don't make a right.

        Undertaking or flashing people till they move over (when lane 3 is still clear and there's no reason not to use it) is pointless. All you'll do is antagonise the other driver (who will carry on doing exactly the same thing once you've passed) and he'll just think you're a right muppet.

            Whats wrong with middle lane hogging when theres 3 lanes? Use the third lane or next time ill drive slower.

              If your doing 70mph you can sit in what ever lane you like, if the guy is in the overtaking lane doing 65 and you undertake him at 70 that is legal if hes doing 70mph and you undertake at 80 your speeding? and thats illegal?

                And that concludes my argument, a real motorway driver

                    ok so there are 3 free lanes, some ssay its ok to sit in the middle? what if a lorry wishes to overtake you? he cannot use the outside lane, your causing an obstruction in the centre and if he undertakes hes the worst in the world

                    use the roads as they were intended! it dosnt cost extra to use three

                      Do not even start me on this please

                      75% of people in this country are so stuck up they couldnt care less about sitting not only in the middle lane but lane 3 of 4 on the A2, many a time i could have go into lane 1 or 2 and over taken. Police should do more, slow drivers cause more accidents then fast drivers

                        i dont see why people get so worked up about this.. there is another lane to overtake so why on earth would you possibly undertake? Good old muggings who undertakes deserves all the punishment he gets simples

                          On the M25 its even worse because its 4 lanes and the sit in Lane 3!!

                          You can have fun with them though.... Its been about on the forums for quite some time, it's called "orbitting"

                          What you do is over take them, then pull across back to lane 1 (descretely), then allow them to pass, then pull out and over take them again....and repeat..... See how many "orbits" you can get before they notice....
