I live in Crewe. Crewe is six miles west off Junction 16 of the 230 miles of death that is the M6. This bit around here, from Stafford to Knutsford, regularly features on traffic reports and sadly, often as a result of quite horrific accidents. The one caused by the drunk footballer was down the road at Stoke earlier in the year and only last night, former Great Britain rugby league star David Myers was killed at Junction 17 and a family of 6 was killed just north of 16 towards Sandbach. Drive along this stretch and there's nothing unusual about it at all; it's like any other stretch of motorway in the country. It is as always, drivers being either daft or more often than not, distracted, who are the cause of accidents.
I've been listening to the traffic reports all day. The road's been clear most of the day yet traffic is still slowing down to look at the site of last night's tragedy - and more. Can someone please answer me this - Why, in the name of all that is sensible and when we know the prediliction towards crass stupidity of most drivers, do film crews insist on setting up pointless interviews with men in hi-viz jackets on the nearest bloody motorway bridge?
