So, if you dont know what I mean so far:
U represents your car
> represents the fixed chevrons painted on the road
T represents the car ahead!
A.) U > > T (Lane two in the picture above)
B.) U> >T (Lane three in the bottom of the picture above)
C.) U T (sitting on the chevron)
D.) >U T> (Lane three to the right of the HGV)
I personally try to keep in the A) format, but think the HGV's have it right, if its bad weather, I will do what the two HGV's in lane one are doing! leaving 2.5 + chevrons between them!

It would take two seconds to go from one chevron to another at 70mph.

I hate people that cut in or overtake using the gap I've left too!!!

I had someone do that on purpose a couple of years ago hoping to put in a claim but soon papped himself when he realised I was in uniform and driving an unmarked car.

but since we dont have any then id be option C in the above and from my understanding that is two car lengths from the car in front.

I'm a B person myself... Where I an see one chevron in front of my bonnet, and one under the boot of the car infront...
Im exactly the same, but like said.. Guving the option for other drivers dip in and our the gap causing the system to mess up. Lorrys are the only ones who abide by this correctly in my eyes.

As much as people can try its almost impossible to keep two between you. Some idiot will always pull in front or come right up behind you!
