A campaign has been launched by the Highways Agency and the Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG) in the Midlands to stop drivers misusing the hard shoulder on parts of the M6 and M42 motorways.
We do not want to issue fines and instead want to encourage good driving behaviour, but people need to understand that travelling on the hard shoulder when it is not available as a traffic lane is illegal and unsafe. They could cause a traffic collision and put lives at risk.
