This week’s tips, from IAM RoadSmart's director of policy and research, Neil Greig, are advising drivers on how to cope with a breakdown on the motorway. Read our essential tips to find out more.
Neil said: “On smart motorways the hard shoulder is used as an extra lane. If your car develops a problem on this type of motorway then leave at the next exit, or pull into a motorway service area.
“So long as you prepare for unexpected breakdowns you can avoid the experience of it becoming too inconvenient and be on your way.”
