I saw construction of a brand new motorway in progress, grade separated junctions even on single carriageway major routes, new flyovers in progress at existing major junctions to improve traffic flow and traffic signals on approaches to villages which turn to red if a vehicle approaches too fast.
In addition, emergency services allowed traffic to use all lanes of a motorway to pass an accident when the debris is clear of the carriageway and the majority of drivers used small and economical cars.
I did not see any ramp metering, use of hard shoulders for running traffic, speed humps or speed cameras, matrix signs saying "queue caution" or "long delays", or traffic signal junctions every few hundred metres on major dual carriageway routes.
Nor did I see long lines of predominantly large and expensive premium brand cars either crawling or stationary on the motorway network.
Are we getting it right in Britain?
