Ten thoughts on...the M6

Not the most riveting subject for my ten random Friday thoughts, but I have just spent a long time on the M6 motorway this week.

* Are there really speed cameras on the southbound stretch near Kendal?

* Why doesn't Carnforth have a brown sign - Gateway to the Lakes?

* Is there a more dangerous junction than Lancaster North?

* Is there a more magnificent civic monument than the Ashton memorial?

* My personal Room 101 will be to be trapped forever at Forton services.

* Is there still some rude graffiti under the big T bridge at Scorton?

* Those chevrons on the southbound side between Galgate and Broughton, what are they all about?

* Adverts on lorry trailer parked in fields, that's not legal is it?

* My goodness isn't Lancaster University ugly?

* Has anyone from Dolphinholme or Bay Horse ever been arrested and prosecuted for using the works access roads?

I can answer some of your questions:

Why doesn't Carnforth have a brown sign - Gateway to the Lakes?
Because visitors to the Lakes aren't welcome! Seriously. Have you noticed the number of brown signs which point to made-up places (Lake District Peninsulas for one)

Those chevrons on the southbound side between Galgate and Broughton, what are they all about?
You should leave two between you and the car in front to avoid bunching
