Re: Motorway Madness - A Rant

Mostly I agree but perhaps a little harsh on the lorry drivers.

I don't want to plough into the side of a lorry when joining a motorway but I also don't wan't to stop and wait for ten of them to go past before I get into the flow of traffic from a standstill. Neither more do I want to slip into the small gap between them to avoid having to stop! I have no problem with them pulling into the middle lane to allow merging traffic a bit of space! I'm a bit laid back about it really, if I have to slow down a bit then so be it...if I can't spare a minute or two then I didn't leave early enough!

I know some truckers are nobbers who deserve all they get but by the same token some of them are perfectly reasonable and don't deserve the contempt with which car drivers treat them. On an average journey I feel threatened more by the antics of other car drivers than I do truckers!
