In the UK it is now an offence to stay in the middle lane of a motorway if you are not overtaking.
This is sometimes known as 'Middle Lane Hogging'.

It is really annoying when you come upon a middle lane hogger. Surely one should know how to drive correctly, especially on the motorway. Main culprits I find are women and elderly people.

I think part of the problem is our outdated and largely ignored motorway speed limits.
You get a driver who sticks rigidly to 68mph but stays in the middle lane while the inside lane is completely clear. All the other cars are then forced into travelling at or around 75-80 to get past and so avoid blocking up the whole road.
Nothing will be done though, how many of us know of anyone convicted of this offence?

68mph ? That's a sprightly pace in my neck of the woods! :) - round here we have middle lane hoggers tootling along the A1M at 40mph - I've noticed the main culprits are elderly men & women. I try to cut 'em a lot of slack, bless 'em, but it's a bit of a pain to have to keep crossing 3 lanes and back to get round 'em.
Mind you, miles of our motorway have been under roadworks 50mph for years around here, so we're all tootling along for long stretches. :)

PS. Is anyone gonna publically admit to being a middle lane hogger? :laugh:

Not a middle lane hogger. Like everyone else, I dislike them,. But I detest those who use their mobile phone, whilst driving. Most of the young mums around Torbay, are using their mobile phones, and get quite abusive if you point out what they are doing.
