EB-maen witnesses the most random display of highway driving to date

On the way to work this morning I filled up and purchased a top-notch breakfast consisting of a sausage roll and a chocolate milk whilst at the servo, and proceeded to some random carpark to consume it. This carpark overlooked (its on a hill) the segment of the M1 between robina and nerang. It looked kind of conjested and movement gradually ceased. Curious, I tried to get a look at what the hold up was but an overpass blocked my view. Then, a hilux decided to drive of the highway, down the ditch and onto the offroad (the proper exit was about 200m or so back down the highway). 'Fair enough' I thought, 'Unorthodox, especially out the front of a police station, but it worked.' Then, a second car followed the hilux's example and braved the ditch. By now, the damage had been done, as a mass highway exodux began. Cars in the right lane started getting into the left lane, and cars in the left lane started doing near-uturns to go the wrong way up an 'emergency vehicles only' road which lead out of a police station. Cars that were in front of this emergency vehicle road started reversing down the highway, down the emergency road, and then driving off along the offramp. This process continued for the next 10 minutes and was still taking place whilst I drove off. I don't know where everyone thought they were going as the highway was banked up for as far as I could see, and I just found it amusing at cars reversing down a highway and reversing up an emergency vehicle lane, right out the front of a police station. Either a) The police didn't care. b) They had their blinds closed. or c) About 50 letterboxes matched to about 50 number plates are going to receive government-sent letters in the not too distant future. Here's a quick pic I drew up. If the pic looks like a mess, imagine what the real thing lookeed like, I only wish I had a camera.
