I went up to Lancashire for a few days to visit J’s mum and we went to Lake Windermere and Saltaire Mills in Yorkshire.
I went by National Express and we were nearly two hour’s late because of the traffic caused by so many motorists, road accidents and road works.
This is my journey to Preston along the M6, fun isn’t it? I am just glad that I was not doing the driving.
I videoed this on my way back from Preston, this is the M6 again. Every day it seemed to be bad.
The jams went on for miles and miles and they were so awful that our National Express driver took short cuts along A roads and even drove through service stations.
No wonder the Tories don’t want speedcameras, they don’t need them anymore in some parts of the motorway.
On the bright side and to control feral motorists, there were loads of 40mph speed restrictions – yes, 40mph and in some areas, the Highways had put ‘white chevrons’ on the roads encouraging them not to tailgate, which I have to say, appeared to work, lots of motorists were not tailgating and there was plenty of space. But as soon as the chevrons had gone, motorists forgot to think and began to tailgate. Even our coach driver was tailgating like mad.
