Two hand brake turns on the M62 earns motorist two-year driving ban
9 February 2009

A driver who did two hand brake turns on the M62 after rowing with his girlfriend has escaped punishment.

CCTV footage shows the driver, Marc Kirk, stop suddenly on the hard shoulder, before looping back down the motorway in the wrong direction where he performs a hand brake turn, leaving his Vauxhall Corsa in the middle lane.

Kirk then sped off back towards the hard shoulder to where his passengers, who had left the car, were standing, and performed a second hand brake turn to leave his car on the hard shoulder facing in the wrong direction down the motorway.

The 20-year-old labourer escaped a suspended prison sentence as he was due to start a new job in Ireland, but must serve a two-year driving ban.
