    Motorbike on motorway telling me to stop

    Was driving down M1 today towards London, speed reduced to 40. I was in the middle lane.

He then tried to make me pull...

    Joining a dual carriageway or motorway

    I've had two recent cases of cars attempting to join the dual carriageway as I was driving along in the left lane.

    leaving the motorway

    This is most emphatically not a rant: I make a rule never to let the behaviour of other road users wind me up. However, in the spirit of informed debate here I offer the following - Motorway - it doesn't matter which one. Light-ish traffic, most of it in the outer two lanes, naturally. Yours...

    Up to £10k fine for speeding on motorway

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-27774455 Seems a bit extreme but prompted me to ask a question: are national speed limits now enforced by cameras on some motorways eg M25 in Kent? I saw the new Hadecs3 cameras flashing when variable speed limits were not switched on. I'd estimate the car in...
