Written evidence submitted by Mr Simon Higgins (RSM0013)

I hear the smart motorway scheme is being reviewed.

I am mighty pleased to hear that, whenever I have been on them they make me feel very stressed which does little for my concentration whilst driving.

I would be terrified to be marooned on a live lane with cars zooming up behind me and potentially on either side.

I would far rather have a slightly longer journey, and maybe get occasionally held up, than drive with these smart motorways.

Just because we can set these up, it most certainly does not mean that we should.

I urge you to reconsider the entire policy!
