Driver fined for sleeping on hard shoulder

A Czech lorry driver has been fined €1,625 for parking his lorry on the A16 emergency vehicle lane and having a nap.

The driver was taken to a police station and fined €700 for stopping on the emergency lane. The lorry was then towed away because it did not have a driver, resulting in a second fine.
