Just heard on Radio2 that Jeremy Vine show will be discussing Boris Johnsons proposal that mortorbikes should be able to use bus lanes to speed our traffic along. Programme has started...

I used a long one along the A52 this morning. Got grief off one driver, meh.

Have anyone been pulled up by police for it before?

Nope but as long as you look at the signs it fine, I zip in out of them in the bike and car when they can be used....There are 3 types of people who use bus lanes.

1 those don't care and just drive in them
2 those who never use them
3 those who use them properly!

But to be honest it won't stopped a dozey copper pulling you over, I read the funniest email at work about that! It made me laugh.
