Watford Gap is J 17 M1 just into Northamptonshire. One of the guys was on a new bike I think he may have been seeing how far he could go. He was within 1.5 miles of the services, unfotunatley that included crossing another motorway.
Yeah as well as a Love for bikes I am a Traffic Officer with the Highways Agency (cant wait for the response). Its a great job we only hold up Traffic to make the roads safer for all. Spot on about the LGVs drifting onto the Hard Shoulder its frightening how often it happens.
Another big threat is getting in the blind spot of foreign lorries we see the results of this daily. Then theres the debris, tyres, exhausts and hot tubs you name it and it ends up on the motorway. As soon as we know about dangers we remove them as quick as we can but we are restricted to 70 mph so its not always as quick as we like.
We are not interested in knicking people we are here to help. The pays not great but no two days are the same and you get to meet some great people.
I am hoping we can do lots of promo work at the bike show next year !
