Re: to the guy driving the white skoda on the M4 last night

ouch. I was once heading towards Poole on the puddletown bypass (Badgers Nadgers will know the one), As I was coming to the end of the dual carriage way a lorry, a bloody big lorry, with trailor, entered the wrong side and was coming towards me in the fast lane.

He soon realised and luckily everyone had room in the slow lane. I watched in my rear mirror as he reversed back up the dual carriageway,

Re: to the guy driving the white skoda on the M4 last night

yep thats the one, white skoda fabia, he passed me as i was going down the hill having just come under the M5, i was heading onto the M48 as i called the police, the car who had just passed me had to take very hurried avoiding action, the skoda passed me in the fast lane as i was in the slow lane, i gave him a flash of lights but he didnt respond, all he had to do was pull over and turn round

on the way back into northampton i got stuck in the traffic just above jnc 16 for 3 hours, a biker had gone under a 7.5 tonner, fatal unfortunately, thats why it took so long to let us through, when someone dies i really dont mind waiting for a few hours, somebody somewhere lost a love one.

Hope the biker isn't seriously hurt.

How on earth is it literally possible to end up going the wrong way down a motorway by mistake?????

Actually very easy if you aren't a proficient driver. (Or drunk.)

I know of someone who did it here on a dual carriageway
a few years ago and killed their passenger and a well respected
local figure who was going the right way in their car. Stupid.
