It's a repost, but a good one.

I just wish they got their facts right. Junction 12 is well into Gloucestershire and not covered by Avon and Somerset.

Even in queuing traffic the car made no attempt to beat the queue by diving up the fast lane to cut in,

Can someone help me understand.... when they refer to the 'fast lane', are they really talking about the BMW lane?

The poor misguided queueing fools ...

They are the real scourge of the highway ... how little they understand

I thought that was why we pay more road tax than most as we get our own lane

You're right it's the thin end of the wedge, the next thing you know there'll be ones driving round without their front fogs permanently on.

I haven't seen him, and I go past J12 everyday.

Maybe it's me!

As an aside, it looks like the local police have got a new area car - a 330d!
