    Default Roads getting quieter?

    We have just driven home from MK today and i was amazed how empty the roads have been, as we managed 400 miles in 5hrs (MK - Glasgow) and the whole journey in 6.5 hrs, which is normally impossible in the UK. The last time we were down in the S.E the traffic was mayhem, yet this time everywhere we went the roads were very quiet - do you think this is as a result of petrol prices as i cannot think of anything else

    Time of day or good fortune would be my guess. Would like to believe roads are getting quieter, but they certainly are not near where I live. They're considering tearing up an area of outstanding natural beauty just to cope with the volume. Problem for me is its right behind my house where I go for peaceful walks!
    Lets keep optimistic and go for quieter roads though!

    Fuel prices just dropped by 2p per litre here, empty roads just chance, at a guess.

    Na everywhere we went it was quiet, M1 from York all the way to London on monday was really quiet. Spoke to some folk the other night and they were saying journeys that used to take them 3.5hrs now takes them 2.45-3hrs due to being less cars, TBH at the time i didn't believe them but today it all seemed to make sence..

    Paul, 6.5hrs from MK to PA31....google it

    EDIT- the old girl also averaged 36MPG which is exellent considering...
