Re: Lorry drivers blocking traffic
I have to agree with Nige005 too. The cones are there to filter two lanes in to one.....you don't have to get into lane at the earliest opportunity AFAIK.
It always amazes me when driving, how many people will go out of their way to keep everyone behind them. I use a zip lane every night and am totally p'd off with drivers who refuse to let you filter one on one - because they had to queue so why didn't you??? Well, actually, it's because I'm using the zip lane like you're supposed to!!!
Unfortunately, I think there is a bit of the same mentality when you get a lane closure - everyone is entitled to use whichever lane is most convenient then merge at the end - if they chose to join the end of the longest queue, that's their choice.
And who appointed lorry drivers to tell us how we should and shouldn't drive anyway?
