Allow PSV vehicles to use Outside lane of Motorway when HGV are obstructing all other lane

In 1996 there was a trial period of 2 years placed on PSV Coaches being able to use the outside lane of any Motorway and that was when most uk Motorways were only 3 lanes and us as Coach drivers would be stuck in Lane 2 behind a HGV attempting to pass another HGV at approx 56mph where 1 does not have an extra power to pass the other and this game of Cat & Mouse can continue for many several miles whilst Lane 3 is empty allowing us to pass quickly and comfortably at 62mph but now a lot of Motorways are at least 4 lanes this problem has become worse and much more frustrating as the HGV now block lane 1 , 2 & 3 & sometimes this is done deliberately when a HGV can see a PSV approaching , Also to add PSV vehicles pay considerably more in Vehicle tax every year than an average car motorist although we have more restrictions on the usage of UK roads.

The intention of this petition is to be forwarded to Mr Chris Grayling , Secretary of State for Transport for this current situation to be reviewed
