Being an avid collector of car numbers, I don't know how you can say that. There are at least five I haven't seen before.

Considering the standard of driving, NOTHING is unbelievable! 

And that is the real crux of the subject

Poor Driving

One poster mentioned ruts from heavy vehicles. If the rut has a couple of mm of water in it the tyre will aquaplane and every driver here knows the instant response is to grab a big handful of steering and slam your foot on the brake and, especially in a pick-up, without touching the clutch pedal.

The residents should ask why is this new section of road unfriendly to pick up trucks with big wheels bald tyres and idiots in the saddle

I came down 304 on Sunday, the road has a lot of ruts in the left lanes from heavy trucks, they can easily catch people out, some parts really bad, throw in the rain and generally inept drivers and there will be accidents for sure!

The pictures in the OP show concrete road.

 

If I understand the meaning of ruts correctly, they are only in asphalt roads.

 

Near where I live they have widened road #36 and made it all concrete, so no ruds, but now they have big signs every 1 km or so on the straight patches " slippery when wet "  :cheesy::cheesy:

Someone wrote beneath the sign: 'So is mine'

8 lanes?! I wonder if any road in the whole UK has 8 lanes. Certainly not outside of motorways. What the hell are they for?
