Overtaking - I overtook another artic on the M2 once . Took 4 miles
Legal if you are overtaking. Otherwise comes under driving without due care and attention.
but not as easy to prove as speeding so not enforced as often
Surely you do realise I was joking when I posted that I was a bit baffled....
It was a strong possibility on the first post.....
I think you were being serious but having been caught red handed by @kyoto49 decided to try to make it look like a joke, to spare your embarrassment and her further ire.
Just seen two young ladies in a silver BMW pull up at the bus stop opposite the Picturehouse then drive off with the hazards on and the driver on her mobile. She was driving a good 6ft from the kerb but then BMs are rather wide aren't they?
She then stopped at a green light by the Grapes, hazards still going, missed three cycles of the lights and pulled off whilst the lights were against her.
Worst and most dangerous driving I've seen for years!
It's ok. The road belongs to her.
Of course, silly me eh.
Aren’t P plate drivers meant to be more careful and considerate on the road as they’ve just passed and had the Highway Code drilled into them? Not pull out in front of an oncoming car next to the Met without checking and then spend most of their time fluffing their hair up in the mirror instead of watching the lights.
Is this what it’s like to get old? Damn kids.
Nah, the 'P' means that YOU have to be 'prepared' for them to do any random amount of stupid things because they're an new driver (& their hair needs fluffing).
Sorry but I beg to differ, P means pissed and they've done their hair several hours beforehand
Bloke in a Mercedes cut me up three times on Queensway. The final one was to suddenly leave the A34 lane and barge into the A449 lane, as you approach the KwikFit lights from Asda. We then had to stop as the lights went through a futile sequence, with nobody coming the other way.
How I laughed when he then turned onto Lichfield Road, where he could have gone without waiting, if he hadn't pulled his final manoeuvre.
The ex used say that the P plates were red rag to a bull, gives the more experienced, yet bully boy drivers, the excuse to scare the shit out of the newly qualified.
You’d think someone who’s livelihood relies on them having a license like, say... an ice cream man, would be a bit smarter than to sit staring at their phone resting on the steering wheel while going up Beaconside at 50

Or an off duty police officer.
Full marks to the Stan Robinson driver who was too close to the back of my car to actually spot the left indicator, thus having to swerve into the middle of the road to avoid the fact that I had stopped, due to the entrance being 'blind'. He seems to have exhausted his hand/eye/foot/brain coordination capacity by concentrating on the horn rather than the clutch/gearstick, thus stalling the poor thing in the middle of the road, blocking it both ways for most of a minute, when attempts to restart it were finally successful.
Knights of the road...
