Signs to discourage lane hogging placed

Signs to discourage middle lane hogging on motorways have been placed at key points around the network in a trial to educate drivers. The messages read: "Keep left unless overtaking" and "Don't hog the middle lane". The Highways Agency wants to encourage drivers to keep to the correct lane in an attempt to ease congestion and improve safety. It will measure people's reactions to the signs, located in the north and East Midlands on the M1, M6, M18 and M62. If successful, they will become permanent fixtures across the country.
