    From the YouTube video description

    Dramatic footage shows the moment brave police officers prevented a serious collision on the M6 toll after a car travelled the wrong way on the northbound carriageway towards oncoming traffic on Monday night (19 August 2014).

    Two force traffic officers risked a head-on collision, deliberately blocking the path of the Honda Jazz as it travelled south in the outside lane near to the junction with the A38 approaching three lanes of traffic which had already brought to a standstill just before 10pm.

    The footage shows the two PCs spotting the Honda coming towards them at speed and how they positioned their vehicle to prevent it reaching the oncoming traffic and force it into the central reservation. It also conveys the danger they faced and their apprehension as the vehicle approached.


    The 77-year-old driver, who has dementia, was not injured during his ordeal and, after being checked over by paramedics, was taken home to his family.

    And they sound so calm about it all! The police deserve so much more credit for what they do to protect us than what they get. JIM
