That's very different though. IMO undertaking is fully justified when some cunt is needlessly sitting in the other lane, it's all round more efficient than slowing down and waiting for them to get the message. Doing it to then squeeze into a gap small enough that other people have to brake isn't on.
No, it's never, ever justified.
If somebody is driving in the middle lane when they should be a lane over, well it's poor driving, but it's not dangerous.
Overtaking on the inside is fuckin dangerous, it's much worse than being in the wrong lane.
Somebody driving poorly doesn't give you the right to drive dangerously.
You're a danger to other road users and need your license taking away for a few months because you clearly have no understanding of risk.
That's just a load of shite isn't it? It's a perfectly legal move in the US, I've driven there, I've not considered it any less safe that UK roads. The situation is what matters and there's an element of common sense needed rather than outright own the road arrogance, which I can assure you is not me. There's a question of speed on the whole manoeuvre, there's a question of traffic, road type.. etc. Flying past someone on either side at 100mph to their sub 70 is dangerous, more so on the side they're not going to be expecting it, undertaking in the slow lane when some cunt is happily sat in the fast lane with a full empty lane in between? Dangerous? fuck off. There's a whole world in between too - 40mph dual carriageway really shouldn't be an issue at any point, rush hour where no cunt is changing lanes but they're ebbing and flowing at different times well below the speed limit, what idiot is going to let a massive gap open up purely to avoid under taking? Ultimately, so long as the other driver has an awareness you're there, where's the danger? Undertaking a lorry knowing its blind spots, well, different kettle of fish, clearly.
Any yes, in FER's case, I'm assuming the offence they're bothered about is the speeding rather than the undertaking.
