A HGV driver has been reported for stopping on a clearway after officers from Devon & Cornwall Roads Policing Teams spotted that a vehicle had come to a stop on the hard shoulder of a busy road.
When officers positioned themselves behind the HGV, they spotted that the driver had decided to stop in order to answer a call to nature.
Bizarrely, Exeter services were ‘within sight’ of where the professional driver had decided to stop, leaving officers bemused as to why he did not just come off at the nearby junction.
After being given a ticket, officers sent the driver on his way.
‘The motorway is not your personal toilet, especially with Exeter services within sight. Driver reported for stopping on a clearway and sent on his way.’

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
