Tailgating / lane hogging

Since 2013, tailgating and lane hogging have become punishable offences in their own right.  Under these measures, drivers who commit these offences can be issued with a £100 on-the-spot fine and three penalty points.

Tailgating is the practice of driving too closely to the vehicle in front, increasing the likelihood that the driver who is tailgating will not be able to stop in time if the vehicle in front brakes suddenly.

Lane-hogging refers to motorists who persist in driving in the middle or outside lanes of a motorway for no good reason, when the law requires vehicles who are not overtaking others to keep to the left.

At Minton Morrill, our specialists have expertise in advising on all road traffic offence matters, including tailgating and lane-hogging. If you are accused of committing such an offence and wish to plead not guilty then it is important to seek expert legal advice at the earliest opportunity.

To find out more about how our road traffic offence solicitors in Leeds, Bradford, Hull, Yorkshire and the wider North of England can help you, please contact us.
