And do you know why the HGV was over the white line? Because I don't just by looking at that picture! And for the comment about bullying, maybe this is coming from a non HGV driver? Did you ever think about there being a possible obstruction on the hard shoulder ie highways agency, or maybe he was overtaking! And he indicator had knocked off!

And I'm just wonder when the petition will begin about light being switched on at night on the m65......oh wait.....this was during the day....so what's to blame now, the sun....I know telegraph, please can you get a petition going to ban the sun!!
