Speaking to Express.co.uk, he said: “Middle-lane hogging is often one of drivers’ biggest annoyances on the motorway as it needlessly causes congestion.
“The Highway Code makes it clear that drivers should keep left unless overtaking.
“Despite this many drivers sit in the middle lane with nothing to their inside, frustrating others by forcing them to overtake in the outside lane, or worse still illegally on the inside.
“Apart from being inconsiderate, hogging the middle lane is against the law and can result in a £100 fine and even three penalty points.”
