Police detect a car in an emergency lane next to the motorway. There is no driver to be seen far and wide. The reason for this is as brazen as it is incredible.
Wollongong (Australia) – hard shoulder, exits and emergency lanes all have something in common: they are repeatedly “abused” by brazen drivers to make a stopover there. But above all, the last-mentioned alternatives are, as the name suggests, only intended for emergencies.
As the highway police of the Illawarra Highway in Australia informs on Facebook, they are only “used for special purposes”. And further: “They were not designed for picnics, breaks or to go for a walk with the pets.” The police officers are probably referring to the scene that was presented to them on Mount Ousley Road when they saw an empty car next to them spotted the highway on an emergency lane
The terrifying thing about the story: Exactly this emergency lane was recently the scene of a bitter truck accident, as the second picture in the Facebook post shows. Emergency vehicles are depicted on it – as well as police officers who are standing there to secure the scene of the accident. Just because the emergency lane was free on the day in question was it possible for the truck driver to use it at all – without causing even greater misfortune.
