At least The French can rescind and go back to before like the 90 to 80 and back to 90kmph. As well as priority a droit and breath kits.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com

We were taught that on Motorways the hard shoulder was a dangerous place and to exit the vehicle and get beyond the crash barrier. It is therefore unbelievable that hard shoulder running or all lane motorways were introduced.
I think everyone involved in introducing them should be made to sit in a stationary vehicle together with their family for an hour starting with the Transport Secretary.
I watched Grant Shapps on TV explaining his intention to hold a 'stocktake' of the dangers of hard shoulder running. I can guarantee a fudge coming.
