In an example of Active Traffic Management on the congested M6 motorway, the matrix sign ahead invites drivers to use the hard shoulder as an extra running lane.

Active Traffic Management (ATM) is a system used on motorways where the gantry signs are computer-controlled to set a variable speed limit, open the hard shoulder as a running lane and limit the volume of traffic entering at junctions, with the aim of improving the flow of traffic (see LinkExternal link for more detailed information about the Active Traffic Management system).
