Now, we've all been there - stuck behind drivers hogging the middle lane. Well from today they could face an on the spot fine of £100 as part of a crackdown on careless drivers. But there are concerns tonight that there aren't enough officers here to enforce it, as Megan Boot reports

We want to know what you think about the new fixed fines for driving offences such as tailgating and lane hogging.
You can get in touch in a number of ways:
From today careless drivers who tailgate or hog lanes could be hit with on-the-spot police fines.
Under the new rules, police officers can stop drivers and issue £100 fines and three points.
Fixed penalties for offences such as speeding and mobile phone use have also risen from £60 to £100.
However, penalties for the most serious driving offences will still go through the courts.
The new measures have been welcomed by road safety charity, Brake.
Julie Townsend, the deputy chief executive of Brake, said: "Driving is the most dangerous thing most of us do on a daily basis, but sadly some drivers remain complacent about the risks and the law.
"We hope today's changes will help to improve driver attitudes and behaviour. But we are concerned penalties still aren't nearly high enough to deter all bad drivers and reflect the potentially appalling consequences of bad driving."
