A motorway policeman has taken to Twitter to tell of his stories on patrol on the M62, including how a driver got his comeuppance for ignoring a red X on the motorway.
PC Martin Willis, who goes under the Twitter name Motorway Martin was attending a breakdown on the motorway and had placed his car under the Red X.
Video from his vehicle shows a car driving along the closed lane. In a tweet, PC Martin writes that the car drove under the Red X and the driver stuck his finger up at him.
PC Willis then adds that he later attended the driver’s home and was reported for failing to comply with a lane closure. Further investigation also suggested he wasn’t insured.
His Twitter account features several video examples of drivers ignoring red Xs on the motorway.
