Narrow lanes and speed restrictions

Reported in the Roadworks category anonymously at 09:00, Thursday 17 September 2020

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

I frequently travel up and down M4 from Chiswick to junction 8/9. The speed limit is 50 mph.On many occasions I find I am tailgated by aggressive drivers of large lorries flashing their lights when I am doing 50mph. They are obviously exceeding the speed limit and driving dangerously. I have reported this by phone to you but was told there is nothing to be done. A severe accident is waiting to happen with this reckless driving especially when the lanes are so narrow. I have told the police and have been told to email you. Kindly look into this matter with utmost urgency.

  • Driving M4 dangerous. Many (often motorway maintenance drivers) exceeding speed limit tailgating ,flashing intimidating other drivers trying to abide by regulators...especially dangerous when they overtake in narrow lanes. DOES ANYONE CHECK THE CAMERAS?
