An uninsured and disqualified BMW driver was caught flagging down a motorist on the M1 in Hertfordshire to ask for fuel money.  

The banned Beemer driver was spotted near Harpenden by officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Roads Policing Unit.  

They asked a woman for 'fuel money' at junction 10 of the M1 near Luton Airport.

“How rude you may think. Driver found to be disqualified so the vehicle is being seized and the driver prosecuted for that offence and more.
