    There's a 3 lane A road near me with a 30mph limit.

    I FUCKING HATE IT.
    We have a half-mile stretch of dual carriageway. It's the only one on the island and it never fails to amaze me at how people have no idea to drive on it, pootling along at 30 in both lanes. Infuriating.

    "Gropecunt, the earliest known use of which is in about 1230, appears to have been derived as a compound of the words grope and cunt."

    A41.

    Least fav would be the nearby deathtrap, otherwise known as the New Ferry bypass.

    Driving fast over bumps is a great feeling

    B4560 between Llangynidr & the Heads Of The Valleys road. You can absolutely tank it along these roads and it's where Top Gear do some of the road testing.

    Just watch out for sheep :D.

    The lovely shithole I walk/drive to work every day. I still shit myself when taxis stop in the middle of the road.

    A82 through Glencoe - GIS link. You can see why if you click that. Probably why it's such a deathtrap too :)

    Fav bit of motorway is the tailend of the M8 going into Greenock (actually you're best just turning round and avoiding Greenock). It goes down by the side of the Clyde, with mountains in the background. If you are really lucky you can see a submarine or warship sailing along!

    I drove this one which was pretty terrifying.

    Favourite is probably this one in Canada.

    Have to agree there. The A85 and A82 have some great moments.

    Hate the A9 though.

    Some beautiful scenery on the A roads in Scotland. Particularly on the way to Skye.
