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.

Not sure whether it was on here or another forum that we were 'collecting' possible valid reasons for staying in the middle lane, but here's one anyway. In most circumstances I will stay in the middle lane if I'm approaching a slip road that is joining the main carriageway. This allows joiners a better chance of doing so smoothly. In fact I noticed that in some EU countries (Holland and Germany I think), the authorities also think it's a good idea as they paint a solid white line between lane 1 and lane 2 so that if you are in Lane 2 you are not allowed to return to lane 1 until well past the junction.

Moving to lane 2 to help traffic joining lane 1 is a perfectly valid reason, don't know about you but I was taught to do so by my driving instructor.

Don’t be introducing logic into a thread that would do well in the comments section of the Daily Hate .

I can remember being stuck in a stationary queue on an on slip once due to an impregnable line of cars in L1 on the mainline that were themselves backed up from the next off slip. L2 & L3 were empty but we just couldn't get across to them.

I was taught not to when learning to drive HGV, got to say once I passed my test I ignored that bit of advice
