Motorists in Portsmouth had a shock when they saw a blind man walking along the hard shoulder of a local motorway, it has been reported.According to Portsmouth Today, the man was seen strolling close to junction 11 of the M27 over the weekend.Police found him and took him off the motorway before drivers could become involved in an accident with him and potentially invalidate their car insurance policies.One motorist told the news source that she could not believe what she was witnessing.She said: "I was over on the other side of the road but I was so worried I pulled up and dialled 999 straight away."The observer added that he was tapping traffic cones with his "stick".In June, JournalLive reported that the British School of Motoring had teamed up with Guide Dogs for the Blind in order to allow blind people to drive to speeds of up to 90mph in specially sanctioned areas.
