Letter: Lane etiquette

Sir: I recently spent a lot of time driving through France, Belgium, Holland and Germany on business. Our European counterparts have a good sense of safety and etiquette. Having overtaken a vehicle, they pull into the nearside lane.

Why is it that an incredible number of car drivers in this country see it as their God-given right to sit in the middle lane of a motorway when the inside "slow" lane is completely clear?
