England Birmingham Roadside Services

4 March 2010

Birmingham and many motorways

Today was a lot of driving up various M and A roads. It was pretty interesting, but would be so boring if you had to do it daily. Speed limits arent really observed, and the one single toll road is apparently unpoliced all together, I was travelling (as a passenger) at 100 miles per hour and was passed by nearly everyone on that section of road.
For lunch I had a chicken pasta layered salad in the roadside services pictured below, it was actually really nice.
Travelling on UK roads you notice all the cars are filthy dirty, even really nice ones like Astons, trucks are much higher than in Australia, and many are left hand drive, the Top Gear team that complain about road works constantly are actually underplaying it, Live Traffic on GPS systems is pretty awesome, even when its 4C outside cars still heat up on the inside if the suns shining.

These are 'roadside services', they are all along the motorways and branded differently. Each of the different roadside services brands has a different combo of stores in them. Inside each one is a mini shopping mall and they all seem to be mirrored on either side of the road with a bridge joining them. Prices of food in the roadside services is roughly double what it is elsewhere.
