Driver Fined £940 for Hogging Middle Lane
 
The first motorist convicted in court of hogging the middle lane of a motorway says he was victimised for driving a white van, the Mirror reports. Ian Stephens, 42, was fined £940 and received 5 penalty points for cruising at 60mph in the middle lane of the M62 in his Citroen Berlingo. “It’s because I drive a white van (and) people will like that I’ve been made an example of”, he argues.
