My scheme to increase road capacity for free

Having spent a few hours driving up the M1 yesterday, it was blatantly obvious how the Government could quickly add capacity to roads.

Most of the congestion was caused by middle lane & outside lane idiots who refuse to move across when the lane is clear. Consequently two thirds of the traffic is queuing in the outside lane.

So perhaps undertaking should be allowed (wait for the puns about this suggestion being aptly named because of the increase in deaths likely).

It would be easy and free to introduce, with no administration required.

I've lived in the US for years where 'undertaking' is legal and I absolutely agree - and I don't think it is any more risky than regular overtaking. Keeps traffic flowing as optimally as possible.
