  • "Done 600 miles on motorways the last few days. Most drive ok but a significant minority can't drive properly. Leave a safe distance and drivers undertake and take your safe gap forcing you to brake. Some are weaver birds constantly undertaking then squeezing into gaps. Some drive so close behind you at speed. If you brake as traffic in front slows they almost hit you. Watch a line of traffic in front and lines of cars have their brake lights on regularly because they are all driving too close and constantly "on the edge." Then-surprise-after 20 miles they are about 100 yards in front of you-what do they do with the 10 seconds saved?
    It's no wonder when there is an accident that several cars are involved.
    Oh-and didn't see a patrol car once-so how will the police crack down on these nuts?"
