is pretty much (when we get on the main roads) where theres about 10 identical vans going the same direction doing nealry 100mph with a full load, whenever im with my dad (he works there too), he always straddles the white line and swerves between the lines etc, also funny when the van behind nudges you then in turn you nudge whoever in front etc!
