Never ‘hog’ the middle lane

April 6, 2018

 

Middle-lane hogging is one of the biggest bugbears among drivers.

It’s when vehicles remain in the middle lane longer than necessary, even when there aren’t any vehicles in the inside lane to overtake.

Many argue it is safer to remain on a straight course than weaving in and out of lanes, and certainly common sense is generally applied by both drivers and the police.

But ultimately, rules are rules – the code implicitly states you should return to the left-hand lane as soon as you safely pass.

New laws introduced in 2013 give police officers the power to hand out on-the-spot fines of £100 and three penalty points for middle-lane hogging.
