Motorists who ignore warning signs on smart motorways to be fined


DRIVERS who ignore warnings on “smart” motorways are to be fined £100 and issued with penalty points.

The roads, which have no hard shoulders, use electronic “X” warnings on gantries to close lanes.

Under new Home Office rules, police will use traffic cameras to penalise drivers who fail to follow lane closures.

Until now, motorists have received warning letters, with around 1,500 a week being  sent out.

Smart motorway speed cams are being rolled out across the UK and can catch you even when no variable speed limit is displayed
