If you break down in a live lane or in roadworks

If you can’t get into the left hand lane, or you can’t exit your vehicle to get to a place of safety, stay in your vehicle, keep your seatbelts and hazard warning lights on and call 999 immediately.

National Highways closely monitors traffic in roadworks, but you must call 999 if you've broken down in them. The police will then alert us, so we can work with them to provide a co-ordinated response.
