Stationary motorway traffic to be charged parking fees

It was announced today that from 1st January 2018,parking fees will be imposed on two of Britain’s busiest motorways.
Harold McInnes speaking for Highways England revealed that the plan was hatched after they received a letter from an angry motorist stating that the M1 was just one gigantic car park.  Mr McInnes said this was a lightbulb moment for him; ‘It suddenly dawned on us that there were thousands of motorists parking for free everyday on our highways and many have admitted to being stationary for up to four hours at a time.’

Although they expect some opposition, the agency say that up until now car drivers have had a good run, ‘in fact many of our motorway users actually end up running along the hard shoulder to get to work on time!’ he chuckled.
