    Default No Grit on MAJOR Road's in Brum!! ***TAKE CARE***

    Driving to work this morning and some major route's had ZERO grit.

    Some of the roads you's may be familiar with, Hockley Flyover, Summer Hill Island, A45 Towards Matalan, Aston Expressway Roundabout.....very dangerous!

    Watch yourselves if you are driving around Birmingham, City Centre, Handsworth and West Brom Side's!!

    Obviously I DIDNT take these while I was driving. I got my mate to take them for me as I was driving and then some were taking whilst stationary....im not that crazy!!

    I just had to park my car in a doctors carpark on Garrison Lane & walk in to work!

    I have never seen anything like it, cars, vans trucks, nothing could get up the hill, except, crazily, BUSES!!! I saw 2 drive straight up without slipping once!!! They overtook cars & vans that couldn't get up there. That I didn't expect.

    I saw a fuel tanker slide about 30 yards down the hill, god knows how the guy kept it on the road. I was cr@pping myself watching as he slid past my car at about 3mph, all his wheels were locked up

    I made it to work today without major issues - so why have some other folk in the office who only live 5 miles not amde it? And why is my daughters school closed today as well ? ? ?

    If I can make it 70 miles, why can't others make it into work?
