Penalty points for lane hoggers

I LOOK forward with great interest to reading 'Wasters', the forthcoming book by Shane Ross and Nick Webb.

However, I fear they may have missed one huge waste of resources in recent times -- the €1bn M50 upgrade. That's not to denigrate the work that has been completed -- it's now a fine motorway, allowing a hugely enhanced throughput of traffic.

However, the extra lane is useless as it lies forlorn and empty -- and ignored by the host of drivers doggedly hogging the middle lane, steadfastly refusing to occupy it even as it stretches empty for miles ahead.
