Car insurance: Survey reveals roads we relish and routes we resent

Tuesday, 09 September 2008

Steering clear of the A14 from Cambridge to Peterborough might be a good idea for drivers who do not want to end up making a claim on their car insurance, a new survey has suggested.

A poll by Caterham Cars, the manufacturer of specialist lightweight sports models, asked people to vote for the worst and best routes in Britain.

The A14 was found to be an accident hotspot, but it was not the most dreaded route.

That particular accolade was awarded to the clockwise section of the M25 from junction five through to 21.

Conversely, the most popular road was revealed to be the A57 between Glossop and Sheffield.

Snake pass – as it is commonly known – reaches heights of 512 metres above sea level as it winds its way through the hills of the Peak District.

Andy Noble from Caterham Cars said with the amount of time drivers spend sitting in traffic jams it is easy to forget that motoring can be fun.

"But turn off from the beaten track and there are plenty of roads that remind us that driving is still a privilege," he added.
