I have been out on the road now as a HGV driver for six years or so. Every summer, Mr & Mrs "flat-cap-and-driving-gloves" with a combined age of about 397 dig out the caravan and block up the lorry parks that I am in need of to comply with my driving hours. For 50 weeks of the year I, and hundreds of other drivers are all tarred with the same brush of being one of the great unwashed as, to be fair, most truck - stop parking areas stink of psis. To compound this further, they then (along with Mondeo or Passat driving rep') become proud members of "The middle lane club" as they still consider the motorway as having a slow, middle and fast lane and they are now driving an aircraft carrier. The last time I checked (last week) the highway code defines the motorway as lanes 1, 2 & 3 and the standard speed limit applies to all of them. Why oh bleedin' why do people "cruise" in lane 2 at 55mph when lane 1 is empty and my merc' wagon is legally restricted to 56mph??. I can travel for miles slowly gaining ground on such vehicles and when a down hill slope allows me to reach my legal maximum of 60mph..... the batsrds put their foot down to stop me overtaking them and I have simultaneously hacked-off the driver behind me who has no idea why I'm in lane 2 to begin with. I'm not the greatest fan of PC Plodd or the lads and lasses from VOSA but one day they're gonna get smart and get a couple of unmarked cab-units backed up by an unmarked car to spot (I'm nine feet up in a lorry cab) the ones who fail to return to the left lane if appropriate to do so or the phone users, map readers, coffee drinkers and paperwork shufflers who scream past me on a regular basis whilst driving with their knees. Can't you tell I've had a really good day today - If I had a glove-box, There'd be a gun in it. Any more for any more??
