Another driver who was signalled to stop by police on the M25 near Watford ended up pulling over in a live lane.

It is the second time in the space of a week that such an incident has occurred on the motorway.

Officers from the Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire road policing unit shared the latest incident on twitter this morning.

Police said that upon stopping a vehicle on the M25, the driver ended up coming to a halt in lane three at J22.

The vehicle later moved over to the hard shoulder.

A tweet read: “Special thanks to the drivers directly behind for paying attention when the driver decided to have a closer inspection of lane 3… Good advanced observation skills prevented an accident.”

Police had stopped the driver due to insurance reasons.

Another tweet added: “Driver presented insurance with address in Cornwall but lives in London. Insurance company spoken to who had cancelled policy yesterday as they suspected fraud. Driver reported, car seized.”

Last Wednesday, the road policing unit uploaded a video onto twitter of an incident in the Watford area on the M25 where police signalled a driver to stop, who then pulled over in the fast lane.

When police got behind the target car with their lights flashing in lane three, the driver bizarrely indicated right before crossing into lane four of the M25 - the fast lane - which is completely the opposite side to the hard shoulder, and stopping.

Highways England launched its 'Go Left' campaign in March, which encourages drivers who have broken down on a motorway to always 'go left'.

Acting chief executive Nick Harris said: "No one plans to break down on a motorway, but if the unexpected happens then I want all motorists to know what to do so that they can keep themselves and others safe.

"This new campaign and its ‘Go left’ message is designed to deliver crucial information in an accessible way and to help make motorways safer for the people who use them."
