  • It's the lane where you have to pay least attention to the road

  • That's about right...

    My personal fave is when the middle and overtaking lane are doing 10km/h below the speed limit so you just stay in the slow lane and undertake the lot of them... I know that's frowned upon but what can you do? I'm not gonna tailgate these morons out of the way...

    I have to do a bit of driving for work, it really gets my goat...

  • Flash them repeatedly. Also, try signalling using the headlights

  • Also when 3 lane motorways transition to 4 lanes and MLOC driver does not move, ending up all alone in lane 3. Stays there.

  • 90 year old taxi drivers are great it's the young mini bus drivers on speed you got to watch for

  • I used to commute from Essex to Kent on the M25 for a few junctions.
    I would inside lane and make better progress than everyone insisting on being in the middle lane.
    Always bemused me.

  • I just had a disappointing HK taxi ride home. Only three phones on the dash and the driver was not a day older than 75. I feel robbed.

    He did get tyre squeal on every corner between Aberdeen and Stanley though. Which was nice.

  • I had to do a speed awareness course once and I remember the guy said that the middle lane is actually statistically the most dangerous lane to be in.

    People just think its "slow lane > medium speed lane > fast lane" rather than "use leftmost lane unless overtaking".

    Tbf I don't think you are required to do any motorway driving whatsoever prior to doing your driving test so many people simply don't know the rules

  • The problem is that the left hand lane is often occupied by people doing 55mph...surely that's the main reason why people end up in the middle.

  • Encourage big lorries to stay off the road during peak hours with a break on fuel duty as the incentive and you’ll solve most of the issues on motorways.

    That said, I’ve just driven home six hours from a week in Cornwall and there are some terrible drivers who I’m sure would find a way to remain a nuisance.

    Black box in all vehicles. Track everyone all the time. Pay per mile and based on the time of day. Charge extra for rat running, city centres, peak hours, trivially short journeys etc.

    People that don't like being tracked everywhere they go no doubt don't have a mobile phone and are campaigning against the police ANPR network.

  • The problem is that the left hand lane is often occupied by people doing 55mph

    Not surprising as there's loads of vehicles that are limited to 60mph (by law) on the motorway, and a bunch more vehicles limited (by speed limiters) to 56mph.

    The MLOC-ers are just lazy and don't move back to the middle lane. Usually because they lack the anticipation and so often find themselves coming up behind something doing ~55mph and find they can't get back into the middle lane.

  • Wisdom teeth.

  • Only 3 phones.. clearly an amateur but making up for it with tyre squeal. 👌

  • People who put ‘40 mins stretching and core’ on Strava.

    Strava in general actually.

    Myself for looking at Strava.

    • ‘still available?’
    • ‘Yeah, still available’
    • ‘...................’
  • Currently getting it with something I’ve put up for free. Just take my stupid dog cage ffs!

  • I advertised two kids' bikes separately on marketplace last week. In the ad I wrote "if you are seeing this ad the bike is still available". It didn't work as well as I'd hoped but they did sell and were deleted immediately afterwards.

  • Ooh where are you.

    And, have you still got it?

  • Ha, I’m in Bristol and I think someone is finally coming to get it

  • the golfmen of sevenoaks, specifically the entitled pricks that inhabit the publicly accessible surrounds of Knoles Park, several of whom took it upon themselves to get salty with myself and a fair few other walkers for the clearly unforgivable crime of "walking on my fairway".

    fuck you and your bullshit "sport", go wrap your range rovers around a lampost you tedious, sensible slack wearing gammonoidal cock suckers.

    in other news, i got into a bit of a shouty match with a kenty golfboi. would do again.

  • nice, if you end up doing gravel cycling you might have to do the same, I avoid conflict by saying 'my name is Vikram and my GPS guided me here' in a thick Indian accent.

  • I'll try that one next time.
