Re: Oh not again

An example from the UK.....

it was made a specific offence to sit in the middle or right-hand lanes of a motorway or dual carriageway DESPITE this having been dealt with previously under existing legislation as 'driving without due care and attention'.

Why was it seen as such a problem? Could be down to the shift from police patrolling in cars over to fixed cameras focussing on speeding. Yes, it earned a lot of money from speeding fines but it did bog-all for all the other bad driving which cameras are bloody useless at spotting.
