The Sevenoaks Chronicle reports on a panicked motorist who stopped her vehicle in the middle of the M25 near Sevenoaks, because her fuel light came on, and she was ‘not familiar’ with the vehicle.
The Audi Q7 driver pulled up in lane three between junctions 6 for Godstone and 5 for Sevenoaks as her fuel warning light came on. The incident caused chaos for drivers trying to avoid the stationary vehicle in the fast lane.
A Surrey Police spokesman said: “Her fuel warning light came on so she stopped in lane three as she was confused due it not being a car that she usually drives.
“She was given suitable advice and directions to the nearest garage.”
