You can tell its a wet bank holiday weekend! I liked the cyclist one at 8m, as a cyclist and a car driver in Cambridge it's a personal bugbear.

Last night on the M3 just come off the M27 and there was a taxi in front of me lane hogging, I was positioning myself so he could see me behind ;) he eventually moved into lane two over and as I was about to plant the fast peddle I noticed the plan white BMW in front was one of our unmarked RPU cars so hung back doing just over 50 mph (which is the limit of that stretch) , the taxi driver being annoyed that I was taking my time overtaking the BMW decided he along with the van that was behind me who had been undertaking and tailgating people were going to pass using lane one and start racing each other.
Those white BMW's look pretty when they light up . :lol:

I don't suppose you had a dashcam did you? I'd loved to have seen the footage.

I do have one front and rear but I'm not one for uploading dash footage as I see enough stupidity and the results of it at work.
