Well did the drive to London yesterday, what with road closures, broken down cars in contraflows,*** and lorries crashing on Mways it took me 7 hours to get there, and five coming back, but I did stop for a refuel on the way back..
I am all aches n pains today, seems 12 hours driving is too much in one day for me now!
I also got ripped orf on the way back! I chucked 3 one pound and a two pound coin in the toll road box bin and nuffink! the arm stayed down!
then it came up onscreen = pay 90p ?? So I had to throw anuvver pound in!
That was a total of Ã‚Â£11 in tolls for the return trip!
***In the contraflow (M1 going North) lane that crosses over the Central reservation. a car had stopped with steam coming out from under the bonnet.. thus trapping about 300 cars behind him!!! So be warned, DON'T take the single lane crossover!!!
Luckily it had backed up so far I was unable to get into it and had to wait for someone to "let me in" to the middle lane again...
