A driver abandoned his car on a motorway thinking it was about to burst into flames, only to realise that the word “Fire” that had appeared on his dashboard referred to an Adele song on the stereo.
The man was listening to the song Set Fire to the Rain when he stopped abruptly, the Highways Agency said. It was one of many odd reasons motorists gave for stopping illegally on motorways.

On another occasion, traffic officers found two cars on the hard shoulder, with the owners halfway through the selling and buying process for one of the cars.
No, really, they get to influence the laws that you and I live under.
