He certainly is, but with the often ludicrously over-cautious signage on our motorways people become blasé. A few weeks ago I was on a UK motorway and got repeated signs for "Incident ahead - 50MPH", so I slowed down, crawled along for about 10 miles, no sign of anything resembling an incident (and in that time there was ample opportunity for the signage to be cleared if there had really been any sort of incident that had cleared itself).
Me, I can understand that the driver would think "Yeah, sure..." and go ahead, and he was unfortunate to discover that this time it was for real. Not trying to excuse his behaviour, just playing Devil's Advocate...

#2 I hear what you are saying and totally agree but the winds were high everywhere that day and no doubt he would have been blown around as he was approaching the bridge and the signs are on every major road for a 50 mile radius and every entry slip road to the bridge.
Good job this was not half a mile up the bridge as it is nearly 300ft to the water.

All this drama is not worth BP498! (Read the advertisement on the van)

#2 The reduced speed signage is often left on for longer than it needs to be after an incident has been cleared, in order to prevent traffic building up and causing tailbacks. To allow cars that had already been caught up in this to disperse.

If you end up crawling along slowly for 10 miles, you never see the 'incident', there isn't much traffic around and everything is going at a snails pace, a real drag. But the alternative could be you hitting queuing traffic and moaning that there are tailbacks.

#4 In fact I have two Warren Evans beds and I can assure you that a good night's sleep is worth a lot more than £498... :D
