But is it also illegal to hog the middle or outside lane? If so, which is the most illegal Has anyone ever been prosecuted for either offence?This thought may have something to do with this morning's ride down the M1 where the outside lane was full for at least 800 yards but the inside and middle lanes were completely empty. Traffic all doing 65mph (except me )
I may have lost my way, but I'm way ahead of schedule.
Turn your highbeam off, Twat. FRM#8
I believe if you are deliberately undertaking to get ahead of traffic then yes it is illegal
Why else would I do it? You think I want to be in a huge queue of traffic all 20 feet from each others bumpers at 65mph? Or be in a lane to myself at [s]90mph[/s] slightly faster?

what winds me up is..................... that is no fast lane. it's the outside OVERTAKING lane. end of. anyone found there, or the other overtaking lane, with nothing being overtaken should get 3 points for dwdc imho, rather than chasing wvm for having a smoke or barry beemer for 10 over the limit. grrrrrrrrr
Here here. The standard of driving in this country is shockingly bad. Drive down the a13 of a weekend and see how many immigrants you spot driving in the outside lane. Its not there fault they dont have motorways in india and they are allowed to drive on our roads without sitting a uk test or have an training, they know no better. Undertaking aggressivly and pulling back out infront of them should be made legal and compulsory.

Undertaking is not illegal as long as you haven't changed lanes to do so and you are not exceeding the speed limit.
This, in itself, is a good thing, because, in car or on a bike, you have to crawl passed them looking in through their passenger window increduously (You have to use your eyes a little more on the bike though, wearing a helmet. But, in those circumstances, it's better just to make wanker gestures with a free hand )
