IDIOTS have been putting lives at risk on the M62.
Ball-bearings have been fired at vehicles on a stretch of the motorway between junctions 28 and 31 (Tingley to Normanton).
Since the end of July police have received 11 reports of vehicles being damaged in this way and some people have found ball-bearings in their cars.
Insp Joanne Field, of West Yorkshire Police’s Motorway Unit, said: “Luckily no-one has been injured in any of these incidents.
“But if people are firing ball-bearings at cars on the M62 the potential for such stupidity to cause an incredibly serious collision on such a busy road is obvious.
“I would appeal for anyone with any information to call the police.”
Two reports from 6.30pm last Thursday mentioned men in a grey or blue Transit van firing ball-bearings at two vehicles between junctions 29 (Lofthouse Gate) and 31.
