Mmm. I'd be looking at the signs when driving, though. And "the map" seems to have some other inaccuracies, so I wouldn't take it as authoritative!

*Cough* M3 J6 spur.

Looks like the motorway ends just before the roundabout?


I'm fairly sure the roundabout at the M58 / M6 junction is all motorway - and it's got traffic lights on it!

Re: Keep drivers alert? Add scenery......

What do people think of this: sign I find them distracting. There is a pair at the Liverpool end of the M62, and they can be almost dazzling, especially at dusk. There's also one at the M6 / M5 split at Walsall. Something in my mind told me that advertizing was not allowed on motorways - hence the ...

Re: "High risk" roads

The Cat and Fiddle has ended up very odd. Last summer, coming back from a conference in Derbyshire, I came upon five vehicles travelling never more than 45 miles an hour on the average-speed enforced section. The view revealed over a mile of clear road, with none of the drivers ahead looking to over...

Re: Intro

Geoff - you are most welcome! And I'm delighted to hear that IAM Roadsmart groups are recommending AD Hub. I look forward to meeting you on a driving day soon.

My own MX-5 (an NB facelift) had a new sill and wheel-arch because of rust. It left me with no regrets, though!

Re: Reg Local at Bristol IAM, 30 September 2017

You are all missing the point ... it is illegal. Wrong spacing as well as missing the makers info etc. I looked into this a few years ago when trying to find a way to display the front number plate on my MX-5 without recourse to Mazda's rather flimsy plastic "plinth". This bit of the law ...

Re: GBOL & DSG Gearbox

That is brilliant. I'd love to see it close up! But doesn't DSG stand for "dual shaft gearbox"?

Re: Interesting AD decision to share

I didn't hold up the ambulance. Nothing I did delayed its arrival.
