Officers from the Surrey roads policing unit attended a three-vehicle collision near Junction 11Chertseyat around 10.45pm on Saturday evening (June 9).

In a series of tweets the roads unit revealed that officers told the lorry driver to pay a [pounds sterling]500 "roadside deposit" for driving without due care and attention.

The unit said: "This left hand drive lorry was the cause of the collision, the driver failed to see the Fiesta to his right and moved lanes."

It added: "We're only able to take this level of action when we have sufficient evidence from independent sources - in this case two independent witnesses, one of which had dashcam footage.

"If you witness a collision, please stop in a safe location and provide your details to one of the involved drivers, or wait for our arrival.

"Without independent evidence it is very challenging for a case to be taken to court."

The unit added that a "very minor injury" was sustained in the accident.

The roads unit has also targeted "middle lane hoggers" in recent months,pulling over drivers on the M3and A3in May.
