The Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG) has reported a private hire vehicle attempting a dangerous manoeuvre by turning around on an exit slip road.

The misguided effort, aimed at jump starting a friend's car, has led to the driver being reported for endangering road users.

The CMPG shared an image on social media showcasing the precarious scene: a blue Skoda, adorned with private hire operator signage, positioned against the flow of traffic on the slip road. With its bonnet open and positioned bumper-to-bumper with another vehicle, the scenario left police officers with little choice.

A Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG) spokesperson said via social media: “The Exit slip of a motorway is not the correct place to turn your vehicle around on, facing the wrong way.... even if you are trying to "jump start" a friend!

“Driver reported for this dangerous manoeuvre.”
