In a social media post, the force said: “Driver seen by ME54 stopped on hard shoulder at Manchester Airport waiting to collect people – TOR issued”.
Some people responded by expressing shock at the action while others said it was an all too common occurrence.
One user wrote: “I just don’t see the point in people parking on hard shoulders, yes I know airport parking can be expensive but I’m pretty sure it isn’t the equivalent cost of the fine unless you’re there all week?!”
Another commented: “I drive a bus around the airport and it’s ridiculous how so many people park on the hard shoulder, roundabouts within road traffic cones where the building works happening on the pavements next to the entrance of the bus station need to put some cameras up and get people fined.”
