I want to ban hgv's from using single lane roads, ban them from driving on the weekends, ban them from all but lane 1 of the motorway.
just my thoughts, but I'm sick of being buzzed by 40 ton artics on the B whatever when there are perfectly good a roads and dual carriageways and indeed mways but taking shortcuts saves them oohh minutes.
being forced out lane 3 because they decide that indicating somehow gives them right of way and nearly takes the front of my car off as i'm overtaking them in lane 2.
not being able to use the mway on a sunday because there are yet more traffic jams, I remember when you wouldn't see a hgv on the weekend, now they are friggin everywhere. this isn't a pop at andy its a moan at one group of inconsiderate road users who I have decided to single out and treat unfairly.
that is all
Yes, it does happen - but not ALL HGV drivers are like that. Sadly, those who get on with the job and do their best to be safe, considerate drivers are totally ignored because people only ever notice the idiots. Its the same with motorcycling. And cycling.
I'm 55 and I can't ever recall not being able to see HGVs on a weekend (and that's not just cos I'm married to Andy!
As for the new motorways rules about middle lane hoggers etc. Clearly doesn't apply on the M62 - been to Bradford and back today and lots of burks in tiny cars floating about at 55mph in the middle lane - cops going past and no interest taken.
1993 Cannondale Killer V - ancient & battered like its rider.
