Fear of driving

BIRMINGHAM’S Spaghetti Junction has been voted Britain’s most intimidating road junction in a survey of UK motorists.

One in 12 motorists avoid scary junctions, driving on average an extra 238 miles a year on detours to avoid having to use them. Some particularly nervous motorists (2 per cent) even admitted to avoiding taking right turns at all costs, because they are so concerned about their safety.

Motorway users face large tailbacks this afternoon after a crash on the northbound carriageway of the M6 resulted in two lanes being closed.

The accident involved four lorries between J5, Castle Bromwich and J6, Spaghetti Junction
