    Dutch motorway: Driver of a car with Belgian plate driving along at around 70mph in the torrential rain, window down, one arm out and using a closed umbrella as a windscreen wiper.

    I saw a **** cyclist on the M60 the other week!

    Some bloke on a cheapo MTB carrying a plastic shopping bag on the bars. At least he was riding down the hard shoulder rather than trying to use the outside lane…

    I called the police, the woman who took the call said they’d already had two other reports from other motorists and a car was on the way to the scene.

    quite tame really, and on a dual carriageway rather than a motorway, coming back from swindon on the A417, torrential rain, standing water, car feeling a bit odd at 70 so i ease back to 50ish. Beemer comes past at normal speed, half mile further on said Beemer is on embankment on its roof.

    A horse, on a scooter doing the times cross word.

    I was a lorry driver for years and I could write a book on this. Top of the list has to be when I was passed by an Irish lorry going down shap on the M6. I was doing 90 in a sprinter at the time.!

    I once saw a passenge in an escort climb out of the passenger window, up onto the roof, stand up and then climb back through the sunroof. This was at 70mph, I couldn’t fecken believe it. Madness.

    motorcyclist in france was annoyed with a car driver so was riding alongside trying to kick the car whilst doing approx 100 😯

    Sounds tame but we got passed on the M5 by some boy racer stylee car , he was undertaking/overtaking generally driving like a tit. We pulled in at the next services for a wee stop and were back on the motorway 5 minutes later , got about 5 miles down the road and the traffic was all backed up .

    You guessed it boy racer car had managed to bounce himself and a couple of other cars off the motorway.

    Also got passed by an elderly driver whilst coming up a sliproad off the Leeds ring road , he was going the opposite way into oncoming traffic. later heard he’d been killed when running into oncoming traffic.

    Two horses ****ing on the hard shoulder. (I originally typed “shagging” but tbh horses don’t shag, they definately ****)

    A car stopped in middle lane of M4 on a Sunday afternoon as the 4 or 5 guys that were in it began fighting with each other across all 3 lanes.

    A couple shagging (in their car) on the hard shoulder, apparently passing the time waiting for the aa to come and fix the car 😯

    Autobahn in Germany driving quite swiftly, got overtaken at an indecent speed by a guy who had a laptop on his dashbord and was happily watching a film.

    a vauxhall calibra spinning through the view in my right wing mirror and across my my left wing mirror and then an eery lack of traffic around or behind me for quite some time.

    a lorry on the hard shoulder that had seemingly braked sharply resulting in a huge iron plate on the flat bed slicing through cab at knee level and jutting several meters out the front

    A silver people carrier with the livery of a very well known supplier of running and cycle race timing services, medals and trophies, and numbers for mountain bike races – with a driver more interested with something that was on his front passenger seat, or possibly even in the passenger footwell or glove box than the road of traffic around him. Mostly driving with two wheels on the hard shoulder but veering randomly from the hardshoulder the the middle lane, indicating occasionally in a direction counter the one he was drifting in. Followed him as he did this for 40 miles.

    Saw somebody reversing back to the junction they had just missed, it was on the hard shoulder so that makes it okay, right?

    On the funny objects I’ve seen, Thomas the Tank Engine on the back of a low loader, smiley face and everything.

    For the last few weeks someone has nicked all the white lining for a 2 mile section, both carriageways, of the M27 in Hampshire. Every time it gets dark and rains someone falls off the edge and crashes into the central reservation as you cant see where the (concrete) carriageway ends and the gravel begins.

    Genius!

    (I thought it might be an extreme example of these initiatives to remove all lining/signs on residential streets to make people more responsible for their driving actions, but it doesnt seem to work)

    TVR Speed 12 on a trailer heading North on the M40 doing about 50 on the inside lane, MASSIVE queue of cars slowly passing it, drivers all drooling away.

    Again northbound on the M40 just before the Warwick services just as you come over the crest of a hill a car stopped diagonally in the middle lane with a bloke with his head back either ill or fast asleep, middle of morning rush hour cars going in all directions to avoid it.

    I got overtaken by a lorry tyre at the Almondsbury interchange (M5/M4). It was around 1am, I was in the left hand lane, it was in the fast lane, no other vehicles around, nowt. Bizarre.

    A Swan in the outside lane of the M6 toll southbound as it meets the M6.

    I rang 999 and they said ‘What?”

    I said “A swan, big white fluffy bird type thing!”

    “Oh” they said!

    A new mini covered in long astro turf half way up the embankment literally on J3 of the M5.

    White van driving like a complete bulb-end, when I refused to let him cut in front of me the driver wound down his window and threw the stubbie of beer he was drinking at me.

    Also knew a guy who once removed his keys from the ignition in order to unlock his glove box, this resulted in the steering locking and…… well you can probably guess the rest!

    Got overtaken by two Ferraris once, in formation overtaking traffic. 20 miles further on, traffic jam. One Ferrari had rear-ended the other, that driver looking sheepish standing on the shoulder, the other on his mobile.

    Actually thinking back – sometime around 1997/1998 someone somewhere had a brainfart and decided the best way to resurface miles of the M90 through Fife was with loose chippings. And as it was a big important road it was important not to scrimp so they put generous great dunes of loose gravel on there.

    Given how crotchety people get when there a 50mph zones through road works – there was a 20mph limit for weeks while they waited and hoped for the gravel to bed in.

    Not me but a good friend. Driving up the M6 in the middle lane and an old boy in a Micra passed him going the wrong way in the fast lane. Apparently suffering from Alzheimer’s. Took my friend a while to understand what he’d seen.

    M5 near Taunton some years ago everything came to sudden stop as the middle lane was occupied by a lane hog doing about 15mph. When I say hog I mean a bloody great pig about the size of a fiat 500. Didn’t deviate from middle lane for about a mile. Didn’t seem bothered by anything.

    saw a guy driving £350k worth of Ferrari F40 on the M25 last week, rush hour, torrential rain….

    Saw some comical sights driving in Morocco – cows on roofracks, camels in the back of pick-up trucks, transit vans with 8′ of straw on their roofracks…

    A lorry cab being towed by another lorry, but the one being towed was facing backwards so as you aproached it looked like a lorry travelling at 40mph in reverse

    A car coming straight towards me when I was in the fast lane overtaking someone was a bit of an eye-opener 😯

    On one of the narrow valley sections of the M74, despite my flooring it, i had to admit defeat and let the two Tornado GR4’s overtake me !

    Doubt they were more than 200ft up. Totally made my day.

    M61 meeting the M60, I was in the outside lane just going past a car in the middle lane, ass hat in an old Micra bombed up behind me so I backed off and made a start to go into the middle lane, (he was that close I couldn’t see any of his lights in the rear view mirror) he then under took me going mental whilst pulling in to the 3 car length gap between me and the car in the middle lane whilst turning his entire body round to give me a mouthful, he got it all wrong and spun in front of me and hit the celica in the slower lane pushing it under the armco and then in to a lamp post, amazingly they both walked away from it but it’s safe to say the guy in the micra will certainly not have his licence for much longer. Driving through the shower of debris was an eye opener!!!!
