In this case i think its justified,
and by that i mean the hard shoulder stuff and changing lane,
but it always makes me think of the police chief on the M6 (Toll Road) i think that got away with it.
That's only a comparison,
but my view is its stupid and endangers every one,
lucky he only got for months i say.
I'm sure i seen a clip of it on the news a little while back.
Keep an eye out for you tube
