Lane hoggers, tailgaters and queue jumpers in Lancashire will face a crackdown on ‘anti-social driving’ from Friday.
Lancashire’s road police are hoping to tackle trouble spots for queue jumping and lane hogging under new laws which come into force this week.
Police will be using new powers designed to root out careless and inconsiderate driving.
Under the plans, unveiled by road safety minister Stephen Hammond, drivers who are caught using hand-held mobile phones will see their fines increase from £60 to £100.
New measures will also tackle ‘careless’ driving which involve hogging the middle lane and tailgating. First time mistakes can be dealt with using educational courses. However if a driver has completed a course in the past three years, they face a £100 fine and three penalty points.
Vehicle hirers and owners will both fall fowl of the new laws as police crack down all all drivers.
