Trials have started to trap and fine drivers who ignore the red X closed lane markers.

I do find it irritating when you obey the signs only to have cars zooming up the closed section delaying your progress.

What I do find irritating is that Highways seem to put the X up 2 miles before any incident, therefore increasing queue length. In fact, gantry signs are very often displaying incorrect information on motorways these days, even more annoying when queuing for a closed lane that isn't!! I have a problem with those "zooming" up the closed lane, but now if the speed is moderate, after all, the zip merge is most efficient. If they want the lane closed so far ahead, they have cones.
