Multi-million pound plans in place to ease motorway gridlock
The plans are expected to include more use of hard-shoulders across around 500 miles of motorway system across the country during peak times.
A similar system has been already been tried on the M42 in the Midlands.
Edmund King from the AA told the BBC: "Congestion is costing us more than £20bn a year and we've seen in the West Midlands that hard-shoulder running, if it's managed well, it can work fairly effectively.
"It can make for more reliable journeys and, as long as safety isn't compromised when it's rolled out, I think it will be something that most motorists will support."
Open your eyes and see....
Motorway Speed limit to be reduced to 50MPH
If you don't believe me drive up the M42, that is the real implication. DO NOT SUPPORT THIS IDEA.

My anti- congestion plan, is more roads. Simple, but expensive.
Our road builders are also obsessed with motorway widening, when actually what it needs is more better A roads, that way fewer people would drive 10 miles out of their way to travel on the motorway.
