Beware the M6 Junctions 14 to 19

Yet another bad caravan accident on the M6 in stoke on Trent today involving an HGV dragging the caravan into it as the HGV was overtaking it , this is getting to be a daily routine with HGV in the roadworks and a weekly one involving a caravan so please if you can avoid this stretch of the M6 or take real good care watching your side mirrors all the time even when doing the maximum 50 mph wagons still thunder past you so obviously the average speed camera aren't doing their job correctly.

With the half term coming up extra vans will be on the road so make sure you harrowing mirrors fitted and use them constantly through the roadworks they really are narrow and scary

Are they ever going to finish upgrading the road as it has been going on for a number of years which is why we will not even consider going north of Brum with or without the caravan?
Sometimes I pretend to be normal, but it gets boring so I go back to being me.
