We've all been there - happily driving along the motorway, minding our own business, when some dimwit casually changes lanes without looking. In this situation, most capable drivers will automatically take evasive action by moving over into the next available lane - provided there is space - to avoid a collision.
But what if you knew the next available lane was reserved exclusively for emergency vehicles, and that driving into your only escape road carried an automatic fine and penalty points on your licence - justice served by CCTV, with no appeals or reviews allowed?
Faced with the prospect of definitely smashing your face into the rock of a guaranteed penalty and fine, you might just decide to chance your teeth on the hard place of a probable collision with that wayward fellow motorist. Maybe they'll see you at the last minute and swerve? Maybe you'll gently bounce off each other with minimal damage done? Maybe you'll miraculously avoid each other by some other means?
