Screens attempt to stop rubbernecking motorists
More than 3,000 screens have been bought by the Highways Agency to stop drivers in England rubbernecking when passing motorway accidents.
The partitions will be put up to deter drivers who slow down to look at crashes on the opposite carriageway and therefore slow down the traffic behind. They form part of a Department for Transport initiative to improve accident clear-up times.
The government said the screens would “keep the motorways flowing”.
