I've noticed an extra-ordinary number of drivers pulled in on the sides of motorways over the Christmas break while I've been in Ireland. I'm not sure these drivers realise how dangerous it is to be pulled in on the side of a motorway. Are cars in Ireland more prone to break down or are the drivers ignorant to the danger they are placing themselves in? I'd hate to think they're pulled in to use the phone, it could even be safer to drive and talk.
The below crash while not on a motorway is still fresh in my mind:
