Hard Shoulders to be used as extra lane
! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.
The Department for Transport has decided to allow drivers to use the hard shoulder of motorways during busy times in a bid to ease congestion.
Great for reducing congestion because it gives you an extra lane and good for the taxpayer because it means they won’t be spending billions on widening motorways. Not so great for the people who have an accident on the motorway – which, of course, are more common when the motorway is congested – who find that the ambulance can’t get to them because the hard shoulder is blocked with traffic.
