£50 fine for taking a nap

Tired motorists are always being told to take a break on long journeys.
So Emma Faulkner thought she was doing the right thing when she pulled into a motorway services at midnight on the way home from London to Preston.
After dozing off in the car park, she woke at 4.30am and drove the remaining 60km (35 miles) of her journey - only to be sent a £50 fine a few days later.
The 24-year-old had been caught by cameras which snapped her number plate for overstaying the two-hour parking limit at Lymm Services on the M6, near Warrington.
