The team at Surrey Driving Force is very proud of the diversity of our learner drivers. However, diversity aside, one thing that all of our learners share in common is the fact that they are all human!
However, as highlighted in a recent BBC article this is apparently not always the case on the UK’s roads!!
Delays on M74 after dog ‘drives’ on to carriageway
“Delays were caused on a busy stretch of the M74 motorway after reports of a dog “taking control of a tractor”.
The incident – highlighted on Twitter by Traffic Scotland – took place at J13 at Abington, South Lanarkshire.
It later emerged that a sheepdog called Don, owned by farmer Tom Hamilton, had leaned on the controls of his utility vehicle, taking it on to the road.
Police and Mr Hamilton later recovered Don, who was unhurt, and the vehicle, from the central reservation.
Mr Hamilton told BBC Scotland that he was out on his off road pick-up checking lambs in a field above the M74 near Abington.”
