Default My least favourite road ...

... is now the A10. I went up from St Albans to King's Lynn (and back) today. Some of the A10 either has been repaired really badly, or has stealth speed bumps every 50 yards or so.

The bumps are uniform across the road and look like little intentional speed bumps, but there are no warnings, no signage, just a semi-regular pain in the butt.

Does anyone know what the story is here? (Are there worse roads?)

The A458 from Shrewsbury to Welshpool. Lorries, tractors, and flat capped, 35mph pensioners.

I'm with you on the A1. Horrendous road which I try to avoid on 2 wheels or 4. Check out crashmaps; there aren't many parts of it where cars haven't collided.
