"Hairy Hands" is the name of a malicious entity said to haunt a stretch of road in the United Kingdom, where it forces drivers off the road - endangering their lives in the process.

"Hairy Hands" could be considered a demon or a restless spirit, perhaps of a person who died in an accident on the stretch of road (as some urban legends have suggested) - though given the rich and diverse folklore of the United Kingdom "Hairy Hands" could well be a modern incarnation of infamous goblins such as Will O' The Wisp, who often delighted in troubling travellers.

"Hairy Hands" could also, arguably, be related to the folkloric beings known as Gremlins - who were often blamed for mechanical failures in aircraft: "Hairy Hands" can be seen as a variation of this myth, with automobiles replacing aircraft.
