On the way back from MeadowHell yesterday on the M1 I pulled out to overtake two trucks that , I assume, had both drivers having a conversation. I mean, why else would they be sitting side by side for about six miles?
Anyway, got in the fast lane and almost instantly had to slam the brakes on (as did everyone else)..could not see why but after about ten minutes of doing 60mph in lane three and having lane 2 empty I pulled over and accelerated past about ten cars. I saw a row of about another ten cars in front with the ones right at the front all indicating left and pulling into lane 2, undertaking a car, and then back into lane 3 to prove the point! When I got there I saw some idiot in a Ford Focus sat in lane 3 doing 60mph without any intention of moving
I could have simply undertaken him like the others, but this really does wind me up, so I pulled in behind him, started flashing my lights and sounding my horn whilst also occasionally giving him a gesture to indicate that both other lanes were empty !!!
He didn't even look in his mirror! I bet all the others had tried something similar with no luck! Eventually, he did look and noticed me! He indicated, pulled into lane 2 and let me past...and then as soon as I was past he pulled back into lane 3 and blocked traffic again
Whats really annoying though is that whilst on the way to MeadowHell we saw three police vehicles sat at the side of the road with speed cameras!!! ...but I am going to start a new thread about that as I am in a ranting mood today
