  • Rant

    Firstly I apologise for the rant, but I am fed up with the way mobile chicanes use the roads.
    Travelling down a well known highway, keeping roughly to the speed limit, I cam behind a P plater.
    Now correct me if I am wrong please, but doesn't a P plate signify this person has recently passed their driving test? Isn't road etiquette taught?

    The P plater was driving in the overtaking lane, with absolutely nothing for them to overtake. I closed up, and had a brake test done on me. Undertaking is on the police vehicle accident report form, so thats a fairly naughty manouver.
    I strongly believe the police are barking up the wrong tree with their pursuing speeding driver policy. they need to start chasing after people who don't use the roads correctly, yes speed is a problem, but travelling everyday into and out of Perth, I see a LOT of badly handled cars and sorry to say bikes. Excessive speeding isn't done (usually) through the hours I travel at, but bad driving is.
    I know, speeding is easy to target, it makes easy money, but there has to be something which can be done to the amount of bad drivers out there.

      It's not illegal to overtake on the left if you're in a whole different lane...
