    An old favourite but middle lane drivers. I was on the M74 at the weekend and the number of people just sitting in the middle lane for no apparent reason is baffling. Are you overtaking? Is there anything within the next half mile or so you have to overtake? If the answer is no then move the **** over.

    Also dickheads who park on the zig zag lines outside schools or speed near to schools.

    Add the drivers (90%) of them that still drive in the right hand lane when the greenways isn't operational, use the bloody lanes.

    Itís mental after all these years of the greenways being here that people still donít use them properly. Last night on Slateford Road I was driving along in the greenway and the car in front of me turned into the petrol station from the right hand lane, cutting right across the front of me.

    United we stand here....

    Is the answer regarding middle lane hoggers not simply to move to the outside lane and overtake them? Or even better just stay in the outside lane and zoom past the lot of them as a matter of course

    With you on the ******* that park on the zig zag lines, totally selfish and happily putting others at risk at the same time.

    You should always drive in the left hand lane when the road ahead is clear on a motorway, so the real answer is for people to drive properly and not hog the middle lane.

    Correct answer.


    On a similar note, almost witnessed an almighty smash coming up the the Dunfermline turn off on the motorway the other night because a Vectra driver decided he'd sit in the overtaking lane at 60mph.

    Eventually a white pick up lost patience and moved to undertake him, but didn't check their blind spot so it was only good driving on the part of the Mini driver that the pick up was about to side-swipe that stopped a high speed crash.

    The pick up driver would have been at fault, but the root cause was the prick that sat in the overtaking lane oblivious to the problems they were causing behind them.


    The rule is simple, stay to the left unless you're overtaking. Whether that's in a one, two, or three lane motorway it's basics.

    I drive 10 miles to work every day on a nice to drive A road. It's not unusual to see some pretty dodgy overtaking, but 90% of the time it's provoked by people driving too slowly (45-50 instead of 60mph).

    The worst are those that slow down to take bends (there's absolutely no need) then welly it when they have a bit of open road ahead of them.

    The one that gets on my nerves is folk who just drive at the same speed on roads where the speed limit varies.

    I drive home some nights on a road that has a long stretch at 60, drops to 40 then passes through a residential area at 30 before it rises to 60 again. I've lost count of how many times I get stuck behind someone who just sits at 45mph through every single section.

    The speed limit changes for a reason you imbecile.

    You may be doing them a disservice in saying they are oblivious. Some of these people do it to keep speed limits to where they think they should be. Knobs!

    I drive a wee van regularly.

    The national speed limit is different for them, which is rather annoying.

    50 for single carriageways
    60 dual carriageways.

    Please be patient!

    When you're waiting to turn right but there's a cyclist in the oncoming traffic who has decided to stop peddling and enjoy the view.

    I'm not speaking about vehicules with speed restricitions. I regularly fall on HGVs, school buses and tractors galore depending on the season. There are people doing their jobs and, even though it doesn't always suit me, they're entitled to be on the road too.

    I'm speaking about people, often in pretty decent cars, who drive badly.

    I wish there would be more bus lane patrols or cameras. Too many folk get away with using them everyday within the hours of operation and then try to push into your line at the last second.

    Nope, I drive a small van (Transit Connect), I'm limited to 70 on motorways, 60 on national speed limit dual carriageways(where cars are 70) and 50 on single carriageway NSL (cars 60).

    "Almost witnessed"

    What does that really mean?

    Had my eyes closed?
    Was a tad away from being an annoying religious fanatic?
    Dyslexic nearly ****faced?

    I admit I've had a few glasses of my favourite vino tinto tonight, and a couple of vino blanco now that the missus has retired to her crypt, but I'm confused here.

    Are you a Vectra driver, the pickup driver with the lack of patience, or Mini Driver?


    I'm guessing not ' the prick in the Vectra', so that leaves the redneck truck driver (unlikely as your spelling is pretty decent) or you are Mini Driver.

    No offence, but spell your name correctly in future, and don't bother with words and stuff.

    Just pictures.




    Probably most are blocked here, so fair do's.

    Links then.

    They've just added another 3-4 in Edinburgh, Commercial St, Liberton Rd, Calder Rd and Glasgow Rd. Also all speed cameras that are now in 20 zones have been covered up and police speed guns will take over so be warned in those areas.

    When drivers queuing waiting to turn right take the piss and keep on coming long after their lights have turned red. Your lights turn to green and you move off only to have another straggler drive right across in front of you.

    I was driving the car behind the Mini, so saw the whole thing unfold.

    I car share with a mate from work, and we called out the bad driving from the Vectra driver a good minute before the white pick up lost patience with them.

    Ahh yes because their limiter allows them to go 1-2mph faster so they take an age to get past..

    While I appreciate the dude who can go 2% quicker wants to do so Iím always curious why the truck being overtaken just doesnít lift slightly to let the dude get past and back in...do they all sit there and seethe that they are being overtaken so force the other one to crawl past for as long as possible?
