I remember it.  Haven't seen it for _years_.  Middle lane hogging (and hogging 
the overtaking lane) is a problem for anyone in the UK with less than ca.  0.5 
kilowatts of light on the front of the car.

Or where the Pforzheim Autobahn joins the Munich-Stuttgart Autobahn south of 
Stuttgart and dumps 50 km/h 40 tonne trucks into the outside lane?  Ever wonder 
where Porsche and Daimler-Benz test their brakes?  There's a similar junction 
where the M40 meets the M42 in the UK, too.
