The Highways Agency's issued a new warning to drivers that it's illegal to stop on the hard shoulder of motorways unless its an emergency.
Between July and September last year over 300 people were stopped in our region on the hard shoulder.
Anyone caught could face a fine and points on their licence.

"You get people stop to check e-mails, to make phone calls, to sort the kids out - a number of issues really.
90-95% of what comes off the carriageway swerves left.
So, realistically all I can say is the only way you want to be in that hard shoulder is if you've broken down and you've got no other option."
