A mobility scooter driver was pulled over after being spotted in the middle lane of a major motorway.

Taking lane hogging to a whole new level, a 'lunatic' mobility scooter driver was pulled over by police after being spotted cruising in the middle lane of a major motorway. The low-powered vehicle was seen by a number of stunned motorists travelling at 30mph on the M6 and the M61, near Chorley, Lancashire on Sunday morning (November 12).

The scooter, equipped with a windscreen and storage box as well as a 'Learner' badge on the back, however, was no match for the long arm of the law. Writing on X, formerly Twitter, a Lancashire Constabulary spokesperson said: “Multiple calls of a vehicle in lane 2 of the M6, onto the M61 this morning travelling at 30mph. Vehicle located, driver reported and vehicle seized.”

One social media user joked: “Typical lane hogger. Should have been in lane one!” A second said: “The L plate is for lunatic! So lucky to be still with us.” Another said this was an accident waiting to happen, saying: "Crazy and so dangerous. You guys can never say you’ve seen it all because the next one is about to happen."
