Drivers vote on Britain's "Most Boring Road"

The envelope please... Britain's Most Boring Road award goes to (drumroll...) the M6 Motorway! The country's longest and busiest motorway was the hands-down choice in a poll of drivers, who were undoubtedly influenced by the M6's track record as one of the worst roads for accidents and traffic jams.
The 230 mile M6 hits a rush-hour peak of 180,000 vehicles, a significant step up from its initially planned capacity of 72,000.

Runner-up in the Most Boring competition was the A30 ("284 miles of bottlenect traffic"), while the third spot was claimed by Britain's first motorway, the M1 ("200 miles of congestion").

A similar survey this summer named the M6 as the road drivers most hate to use.
