I tell you something, I drove the length of the M50 tonight and it's in rag order. A total kip. In a heap. All over the shop.
Ne-er a stretch longer than 100 yards of daycent road. Then there's bits of closed off road on every side. Long stretches with no street lights. Unused construction vehicles everywhere. Narrow roads with brick walls on either sides.
Well all this makes it very sci-fi-like. Especially when the overhead lighting was out cause all you can see are red car lights ahead and the orange lights of the city in the distance, and everything going at speed.
