    So they go slow in order to save fuel, do they? I guess that makes some sense, but they'd save even more by staying at home...

    Well that'a more or less a lap around our housing estate and beyond. Looks like a weekend doing the garden at home then.

    This will worry the Government - why not do it the M62 or the M25?

    This is a private road about a mile long which Shell used to allow the public to use. The road runs up to the entrance to the refinery.

    A couple of years ago the H & S manager organised speed traps to test how fast people were driving on their road. The results were that a large percentage were exceeding the limit (of 30 MPH) so we were all banned from using it. That's why they can't turn right and also the reason why a blockade will be a lot harder to implement now. The nearest public access is about half a mile away from the gates as opposed to being right outside.

    Those speed cameras certainly did the trick.

    must have been behind a "go slow dictator" today - old geezer joining the motorway at 30 mph, two lanes on the sliproad so i move to the outside lane to overtake. moron pulls into the centre of the sliproad to try and stop me overtaking
    what a plonker.
