The Weekly Roundup

It is the most infuriating of motorway driving delays – an otherwise open road blocked by a middle lane “hog”. Now, new research has found six out of 10 motorists admit to being middle lane hoggers, as well as shedding light on their justification for the dangerous and selfish practice.

Tax discs have graced our windscreens for 93 years - on every car from the 1921 Alfa Romeo G1 to the electric Roadster. But from October, this piece of history is ending as the tax disc is ditched in favour of electronic tracking. So as the final few discs are issued, could your old - or new - ones become something of a collectors’ item? Possibly.
