    There are no 'slow' lanes, or 'fast' lanes ... only lanes.

    We ride on the left in the UK ... if your lane of traffic is travelling faster than the lane to your right it is perfectly acceptable and would not be called undertaking!

    Where do you think it comes from? Have you never read the Highway Code?

    Overtaking on the nearside (left) is legally acceptable if you are driving on a multi-lane carriageway in congested conditions, and the lane to the left is moving at a faster speed than lanes to the right. In these circumstances overtaking on the left is permissible although extra caution is needed for an awareness of other vehicles moving to the faster lane on the left.

    Although this isn't always the case when filtering.

    What is a dual carriageway or motorway ? It is in law a one way road, what does the highway code say about one way streets ?

    If, you're riding along at 60 mph on a D/C in lane one, and you come across old biddies are us doing 40mph in their Micra in lane 2 whom you pass; it is NOT an undertake, you have maintained position and speed. What is illegal is coming from lane 2 into lane 1 passing them and then either continuing to pass other vehicles or going back to lane two, this is an undertake.

    If you come across slower moving traffic in lane 2, whilst you are in lane 1, due to traffic ahead turning right; do you stop and wait until they start going faster than you, because it'll be an illegal undertake to pass them on the left ?

    Do not overtake on the left or move to a lane on your left to overtake. In congested conditions, where adjacent lanes of traffic are moving at similar speeds, traffic in left-hand lanes may sometimes be moving faster than traffic to the right. In these conditions you may keep up with the traffic in your lane even if this means passing traffic in the lane to your right. Do not weave in and out of lanes to overtake.

    Where may you overtake on a one-way street?

    The specific offence of undertaking was done away with 10-15 years ago, the only offence of undertaking is "without due care" or similar if the circumstances warrant it but nothing else.
