I know that road well (only a couple of miles from where I live). Paul Lane is that awful right hand turn at the top of the hill (as you're driving out of Huddersfield) isn't it? Some people think that the middle lane is for overtaking slow-moving traffic as you're going up the hill without realising that there's usually a queue of cars trying to turn right on the crest.

I've seen a few close calls on that road over the years - maybe the council should do something about it now that someone's died there. It's strange that they went so mad about slowing all the traffic down through Flockton which is only a mile or so further on.

We have a few roads like that in gloucestershire, expect its one lane going down the hill.... Anyways it all to do with concentration.

Condolences to the family, and this unforetunate event should be a lesson to all of us. :(

Driver may have even been a member :question:
