Warning to HGV drivers travelling on A1M and A1 in Lincs and Yorks
The Police National Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service (NaVCIS) have reported several incidents recently on the A1 Route through Lincolnshire, Yorkshire and maybe further South.
People have been reported standing on highway bridges crossing the A1 and throwing items at HGV’s that are travelling along the main road.
Concrete blocks and other heavy items have been thrown and most recently a car battery was thrown onto a passing HGV that caused damage to the vehicle and injury to the driver.
The message from NaVCIS is, whilst it will be difficult to see any potential persons at night, always be aware when passing under highway bridges and inform Police about any incidents immediately.
