    With the exception of invalid carriages (unless you include Smart cars ) I've already seen the rest of the above on a motorway at one time or another

    I well remember seeing a gentleman riding a bicycle down the hard shoulder some 35 years or so ago.

    It was along the M4 somewhere near that London.

    But at least he was going the same direction as the traffic.

    Never heard of that. Which parts?

    It also annoys HGV drivers who then have to be let out by people like me, who can see their frustration.
    Indeed - in fact the minimum on the motorway or dual carriage way for non hgv traffic should be 60

    My pet peave is people who insist on joining the MWay far slower than the traffic already on it, with me behind in the danger zone.
