  2. Highways Agency and their contractors sending 'enforceable' invoices to people who are breaking down on the motorway for 'damages'. It's been on MoneyBox. It's quite disgraceful because the one company ("A1 plus" as it was called) is owned by a number of companies but all enquiries have to go to the HA who won't comment. There is no warning, no justification for the rate of the charges - eg one woman is fighting a bill for £320 for a bit of petrol leakage which the AA has challenged as being unreasonable because the company (under the banner of the HA) turned up, sprinkled a bit of 'white powder' on the road and left a few minutes later. It's reckoned that this is going to be another money-raking '[problem]' (my choice of the word) which is, at the moment, enforceable and unchallengeable! The driver cannot dispute it, cannot challenge the alleged costs, and has no idea it's going to be charged until they get the bill. Not covered in many instances by car insurance either. So, if someone breaks down on a motorway, they need to take photos of the car, the road, any attending vehicle etc to fight subsequent claims that there was 'damage' to the motorway.
