A shocking video shows a driver tearing along the M25 with only three wheels after one came off at 70mph.
The clip shows the driver risking a fatal crash by continuing on Britain’s busiest motorway in near Junction 6 in Surrey with the exposed wheel hub scraping against the road surface. But it has also led to question marks around ‘smart motorways’, four-lane carriageways with increased capacity because they have no hard shoulder.
Safety depends on signs which, in the event of an incident, close the ‘slow’ lane and reduce the speed limit. The AA said the video showed the ‘horrendous’ situation faced by drivers and called on ministers to reassess the safety of smart motorways.
Despite the exposed metal wheel hub scraping against the asphalt, the driver apparently preferred damaging the vehicle by pressing on rather than stopping on one of Europe’s busiest motorways. The footage was recorded last Friday morning by Mick Sprigmore, who was driving the dash cam vehicle.
