Stick­ing to left on mo­tor­way

Loughborough Echo - - LETTERS -

ANY­ONE who knows me will know that I spent most of my work­ing life driv­ing trucks but that alone has not prompted me to write about hog­ging mid­dle and out­side lanes.

I ad­mit that now I am re­tired I don’t do any­thing near the amount of driv­ing I used to do but if I am driv­ing on a mo­tor­way, ex­pe­ri­ence has taught me to stay in the in­side lane for as long as pos­si­ble be­cause I know that should there be a prob­lem with my car or with some­one ahead of me that calls for emer­gency ac­tion, the hard shoul­der is right next to me and I don’t have to cross in front of any­one and pos­si­bly cause an ac­ci­dent to get there.

Very com­fort­ing!

David Woot­ton.
