I saw ‘ possibly ‘ the stupidest driving ever today. And it was a fellow lorry driver!

    On my way back down the M6 at about 3.30 this afternoon. As I got to the M5 split where it’s effectively 5 lanes, 3 for the M6 south on the right, and 2 for the M5 split to the left, I saw a artic in the 5th lane overtaking the slower moving traffic at quite a pace. Nobber was my first thought.

    I was carrying on southbound on the M6 and moved over to the 2nd M6 lane to pass standing traffic in 1. The next minute ‘ nobber’ is back in the correct overtaking lane up my backside just edging out enough to let me know he was there and wanting to get past. As I was overtaking a line of slow moving traffic I had to carry on until I was able to move back in, when I did, he was past me like a bullet. He was belting on to say the least.

    Obviously I gave him the Swa’nker sign as he passed, but it was then I noticed the the thing that clinched his title as the worst driver I have ever witnessed.

    His container had ‘ danger radioactive material on this vehicle’ plastered all over it in bone fide hazardous goods signs.

    Nobber of the year for him in my book!

  11. Perhaps the radioactive material was in the fuel tank? Nuclear powered artics can go very fast you know.
