What do we think?

Some observations:

For it to be careless, it has to fall below the standard expected of a competent and careful driver.

For it to be without reasonable consideration, some other person actually has to be inconvenienced.

As a cyclist biggrin.gif I generally filter on the left hand side of the lane appropriate for the direction of travel. If the left lane is for turning left and going straight ahead then it’s perfectly safe to filter on the left.

This thread was bad enough when it was about the MLOC, PLEASE don't turn it into yet another, even more tedious, car vs. bicycle thread! icon_hang.gif

Not to mention tractors, cyclists, council waste collection vehicles, parcel delivery vans, buses, ... Suddenly I'm starting to see the attraction of this "get out of the way or it's careless" notion. smile.gif


You did the turning on this one Fredd!

They were just examples of slow vehicles - it's not like I was having a go at cyclists, any more than I was at the likes of waste collection vehicles also going about their business!

I'm seeing a lot more police taking action from what I can see on Twitter to stop middle lane hoggers. Good on them. Many are saying on Twitter that they followed cars for miles on a completely empty road without even noticing there was a police car in the back before they turned their blue's on and pulled them over!

I am very worried about being called out for undertaking when passing these naughties on the inside!

I can't think of a less reliable source of information than Twitter. Except maybe RT or the Daily Fail.
