For many UK motorists this law seems like common sense but for some its something that could see them getting a hefty fine and even a potential ban.
What are we talking about?
If drivers are caught driving in lanes that have a clear red X displayed above and are caught they can now not only be fined but also face a driving ban. Smart motorways are where police believe most drivers will be caught, as the smart motorways are equipped with cameras that are able to detect people breaking laws such as speeding, lane hogging and driving in closed lanes.
One van driver caught was fined £880 and also had to serve a 6-month ban. So next time you’re on the motorway make sure to follow the rules or face the consequences.
Safe driving, from Britannia!
