Mrs Cole of Fishponds, Bristol, was banned from driving after officers found her on a 70 mph motorway, driving at walking pace and continually jamming on her brakes. When stopped and asked by the officers of her behavior, her reply was "I'm scared".
Mrs Cole, who has a 30-year unblemished driving record, has another problem; she has MS and been receiving treatment for fear of driving for the last three-and-a-half years. She took a wrong turn and ended up on the motorway by accident.
The court banned her from driving for 7 days. She must then retake her driving test before driving again. Mrs Cole lives alone and is bound to a wheel chair. She said that she really needs to be able to drive herself to her medical appointments.
