A Rant (well 2 actually)

Rant 1

Driving to London and back in the van on Saturday I was amazed at the number of cars with their fog lights on! Visibility c.1 mile, clear sky and dry road. Why do people insist on frying my eye balls – especially on my way back in the dark!!! Let me tell you – you think it makes your car look better – problem is that when you are inside it you can’t see how much better it looks and no body else gives a sh1t! So turn them off and enjoy the benefit of the extra 0.5bhp it gives you. Is there a signal that other road users can use to politely suggest the use of fog lights is unnecessary; other than the obvious!!

Rant 2

On the same journey I was surprised, and dismayed, at the higher number of “middle lane drivers” there are on the weekend. I honestly think that there should be a part of the driving test on motorway driving and etiquette. When the lane to your left is clear – use it. When a car / van / lorry is indicating to come across into the middle lane use your mirrors to check the lane outside you; if the lane is clear then move across and use it thus letting the other vehicle use the middle lane! Simple!! The number of times you see just two lanes of the motorway being used and a clear inside lane is stupid!!!!!

Rant over - for now!!
