New Fines and Penalties Introduced on Smart Motorways

New fines and penalties are to be implemented next year following a rise in drivers that are caught disregarding red ‘X’ signs above our smart motorway lanes. More than 50,000 letters were sent out to drivers that ignored the rule this year alone, causing highway officials to implement a new system to avoid accidents.

The RAC believes the change is for the best, with a spokesperson stating that: “the sooner the message gets through to motorists the safer it will become for every motorway user.”
