UK: Watch out when driving on A1
The National Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service (NaVCIS) has just published a warning about attacks on HGVs that have been occurring on stretches of the A1.
The message reads:
”We have had several incidents recently on the A1 Route through Lincolnshire, Yorkshire and maybe further South. People have been standing on Highway Bridges across the A1 and throwing items at HGV’s that are travelling on the main road.
Concrete blocks and most recently a car battery was thrown onto a passing HGV and caused damage and injury to the driver.
Please be aware of passing under bridges and inform Police about any incidents. We appreciate it is difficult at night to see any potential persons.”
