Police officers overtaking this heavily-laden car transporter were shocked to discover the driver was using just one elbow to control the huge vehicle as he travelled along the M40 near Gaydon.
The driver was seemingly oblivious to the police officers as they drove alongside him in one of National Highways’ unmarked HGV cabs, as part of the police’s Operation Tramline.
But he quickly put both hands firmly on the wheel when they caught his attention – and notified their colleagues travelling behind to pull the vehicle over.
