Highway Code: Additional information about motorways . . .

__________________________________________________________________

Additional information about motorways 

The Highway Code applies to England, Scotland and Wales and is essential reading for everyone. 

Rule 275


If your vehicle develops a problem, leave the motorway at the next exit or pull into a service area. If you cannot do so, you should: 
  • pull on to the hard shoulder and stop as far to the left as possible, with your wheels turned to the left 
  • try to stop near an emergency telephone (situated at approximately one-mile intervals along the hard shoulder) 
  • leave the vehicle by the left-hand door and ensure your passengers do the same. You MUST leave any animals in the vehicle or, in an emergency, keep them under proper control on the verge. Never attempt to place a warning triangle on a motorway 
  • do not put yourself in danger by attempting even simple repairs 
  • ensure that passengers keep away from the carriageway and hard shoulder, and that children are kept under control 
  • walk to an emergency telephone on your side of the carriageway (follow the arrows on the posts at the back of the hard shoulder) – the telephone is free of charge and connects directly to an operator. Use these in preference to a mobile phone (see Rule 283). Always face the traffic when you speak on the phone 
  • give full details to the operator; also inform them if you are a vulnerable motorist such as disabled, older or travelling alone 
  • return and wait near your vehicle (well away from the carriageway and hard shoulder) 
  • if you feel at risk from another person, return to your vehicle by a left-hand door and lock all doors. Leave your vehicle again as soon as you feel this danger has passed.

  1. How My Life Was Transform by Mr Martinez Lexie

    My Name is Nicole Marie from Ohio, United State and life is worth living comfortably for me and my family now and i really have never seen goodness shown to me this much in my life, As i am a struggling mum with two kids and i have been going through a serious problem as my husband encountered a terrible accident last two weeks, and the doctors stated that he needs to undergo a delicate surgery for him to be able to walk again and i could not afford the bills for his surgery then i went to the bank for a loan and they turn me down stating that i have no credit card, from there i ran to my father and he was not able to help me, then when i was browsing through yahoo answers i came across a God fearing man (Mr Martinez Lexie) who provides loans at an affordable interest rate and i have been hearing about so many scams on the Internet mostly Africa, but at this my desperate situation, i had no choice than to give it an attempt due to the fact that the company is from United State of America, and surprisingly it was all like a dream, i received a loan of $82,000.00 USD and i payed for my husband surgery and thank GOD today he is ok and can walk, my family is happy and i said to myself that i will shout to the world the wonders this great and God fearing Man Mr Martinez Lexie did for me and my family; so if anyone is in genuine and serious need of a loan do contact this GOD fearing man via Email: ( Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com ) or through the Company website: http://lexieloans.bravesites.com OR text: +18168926958 thanks
