so, I have a different opinion about lane discipline than someone else, I'd appreciate your thoughts.

imagine you're approaching this road layout from the yellow arrow, you want to get into the lane marked with yellow circle, what lane should you take at the arrow?

note: upper rainham road traffic is traffic light controlled so nothing coming from that way.

Worry and that and then the tap on the head with your cane when he doesn't perform to the required standards no doubt?

I’d have to lower the partition to do that.

Have you decided that relying on your DOV cover in the UK is too risky after all?

No, I just wouldn’t want to drive in London. Not used to your “big roads”.

Depends what lanes the other lorries are in, ensure there is a lorry in each lane in busy traffic so there is no space for motorcycles to filter through, after all why should they get through quicker while you have to wait in traffic?

If I was in an HGV, any f:)k?n@ lane I wanted. But seriously I would be in the lane you have marked as 2, simply because it offers a bigger radius, as i go to the right and if I then discover I need to go left towards yellow dot, its bonus, but even if i then need to go towards the right I am still in the outide lane. Therefore allowing cars to go faster
