A man has been arrested and charged after multiple reports of a car going the wrong way on the M74.
Police received calls early on Thursday morning alerting them to the BMW spotted heading north on the southbound carriageway.
Initial reports came from near Larkhall at around 3.10am. Police then saw the vehicle travelling the wrong direction past Rutherglen.
After around 14 miles along the M74, near Tradeston, road police then caught the vehicle driving towards their car on the southbound carriageway.
A rolling roadblock was put in place to bring it to a halt.
A 52-year-old man was “safely stopped” by officers without any damage or injuries and refused to provide a breath sample, police said.
He is due to appear in court charged with dangerous driving and failing to provide a breath sample on Friday, December 30.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Around 3.10am on Thursday, December 29, police received calls regarding a BMW driving northbound of the southbound carriageway of the M74 from Larkhall.
“Road Policing Units attended and a rolling roadblock was put in place on the motorway. No one was injured.
