What to do if you break down on a smart motorway?
Use an emergency refuge area if possible
If possible, leave your vehicle safely, and ring Highways England
If you can, drive your vehicle as close to the nearside verge or the nearside boundary as possible
Always, switch on your hazard warning lights.
If you can't get out of your vehicle safely, or there is nowhere of relative safety to wait, stay in your vehicle with your seat belt on and dial 999
