    So what is everyone's favourite main road or motorway section they have driven on. I do enjoy the part of the M6 where it goes through the Lake District and also the A74M where the Southern Uplands are, also must mention the A57 heading towards Manchester.
    And what about that random farm house in the middle of the M62.

    The house is there cause it's something to do with the soil or something and they had to build round it, not cause the guy was too lazy to move which is what everyone thinks =P...
    My favourite road is the A5 as it dips over the hill towards Tamworth (particularly at night) cause then when i know i'm almost home... Favourite motorway would be the M6 toll, it's always really quiet and nice to drive on =)

    My favourite is the A512. The long stretch of that road that i like is quite scenic really, and theres plenty of pubs along there.

    I've had the pleasure of driving on the buttertubs pass in Yorkshire many times. It's just sensational! :ahee:

    Driving it in the wet with a RWD car is a nice challenge!

    If the part of the M1 thats near ish to me is anything to go by- its nothing but trouble.
    One of the latest incidents i remember was them having to close it for a day because someone was standing on the footbridge threatening to jump off. It was some form of protest apparently.Caused mayhem.
