How many times have you seen the sign INCIDENT-40MPH on the M6 or M1 only to slow down( often forced by the tourist ahead) and find that the "incident " was cleared hours before?
That so frustrates and is an example of laziness by the idiots controlling what should be a live system of traffic information.
Being In Scotland this week i noticed that not only was the traffic information current but they also make use of signage when all is running ok . We have a lot to learn from our northern cousins as they tell you politely to
Please slow down-
please dont phone while driving-
please dont fiddle with your satnav when driving
please dont drink and drive
please watch out for bikes
and my favourite please dont throw empty IRNBRU cans from your window
Quite a contrast to England who demand that you do what they tell you and leave the same info all day long
So why are the Scottish highways so pro-active? What else can we learn from them?
