Some years ago I needed to use the motorway to get to work (police pilot). One morning I was late for my shift due to a road traffic incident on my route (which I was actually required to attend). I was instructed by the powers that be "If it happens again please use the hard shoulder; if necessary ring us for an escort vehicle and if an "admin problem" occurs we'll sort out the necessary". For a while our car plates were officially blocked on the DVLA database but I understand a subsequent Chief Constable later rescinded that policy.

I never did risk it though!
