    Who else got hit by the M6 Closure yesterday

    Well for anyone who lives near birmingham, you would know how much trouble this incident caused yesterday

    BBC NEWS | England | West Midlands | Driver arrested after M6 pile-up

    Took me 1hr 30 mins to get home yesterday, normally only takes 20 min's

    Most of birmingham city center, and the surrounding main rounds were just gridlocked!! bloody night mare..

    anyone else hit the mess :\

    very lucky no one died!.. after looking at the footage looked really bad

    and to see an engine on the road.. well..

    Seems as though there is always some idiot causing an accident on the M6. Wish these people would learn to drive, and let the rest of us move about freely.

    Not to sound rude or anything, but what is it with these foreign lorry drivers?
    Driving home last week I watched as a car tried to pass a Romanian or Slovakian lorry on the A52 and the lorry just started veering right into his lane. In the middle of a lorry you dont really have many options. Too fast to slow down and let him go and too far away to speed up and make it through.
    I have only ever seen the foreign plated lorries doing stuff like this. Granted I know there are English lorry drivers (and car drivers) who are just as stupid on the roads, but the foreign drivers/lorries seem to be causing a lot more trouble.
