Police are resorting to new tactics to deal with middle lane hoggers.

Officers following someone driving at 55mph flashed him to move out of the way.

However, the guy was an ass so he didn’t move into lane one, which was empty, then dialled 999 to complain about what they were doing.

GMP Salford West said: ‘Would you believe the cheek of a man who phoned us to complain that he was driving along the M60 in the middle lane minding his own business at 55 mph when a police car came up behind him and flashed his headlights making him move across into the first lane.

‘Sir, this poster is just for you and we’ll tell the officer in question to keep up the good work.’

He could now face a fine of £100 and three penalty points.

Cheeky fecker.

Just how 'above the law' or 'ignorant of the law' some drivers are.

There is no motorway s3ction in the driving test or separate motorway test, so some drivers are clueless and refuse to learn, the concept of middle lane and fast lane are ones that shoulď be cast out of the motoring psyche, you should drive on the inside lane unless you are overtaking slower moving traffic it is a very simple concept but it is shocking how few drivers accept this,
