Not surprised really people get stuck in queues behind lorries and rather than be patient like the majority, they pull off idiotic overtaking moves. Only on Friday ironically a van narrowly missed an oncoming lorry trying to overtake a lorry and about 4 other vehicles in one go and in the evening a car overtook 3 cars and narrowly missed an oncoming lorry his net gain was he got 3 cars up the road.
I have nearly been hit by an oncoming lorry as he strayed across the white line, going through Upton Lovell and yet you never see any of Wiltshire Police along there to 'educate' these idiotic drivers.
