People who drive too slowly should be forced off the road, according to the Association of British Drivers (ABD).

The lobby group is calling for the introduction of laws to make slow-moving vehicles pull in and allow faster vehicles to pass – in an attempt to make the roads safer.

It made the comments after comparison website confused.com published research that revealed 60% of motorists get stressed and irritated by slow drivers.
