In the first paragraph learners are allowed on the Motorway, in the second they are not. What is the law concerning this? I think it should be part of learning to drive. Most congestion, frustration and, subsequently, anger, is caused by people sitting in the wrong lane. The simple rule of ‘keep left unless you’re overtaking’ should be enforced religiously. It would solve a lot of problems and should be drilled into young drivers at the earliest opportunity. Motorways would then be a less daunting prospect and the need for tailgating/flashing/undertaking would be removed.
The law in the UK has recently changed to allow Provisional licence holders to drive on the motorway, before it was forbidden to do so, thus many young drivers passed their tests not having experienced driving at speed and with the other hazards around. The main point is that more experience is essential to safer driving, especially in an environment such as the motorways where many drivers do drive in an irrational manner.
