Caricature

Not a good day for driving

We stayed over in Cambridge on Saturday night.

On Sunday morning, we drove home, and then a little later, we drove over to Wimpole.

In that short distance, we encountered the A11 closed due to an accident, two separate incidents with recovery vehicles collecting vehicles from hedges (one from half way up a tree), and a case where a car was just sitting on its side in the middle of a hedge beside a straight road with no nearby junctions.

This was in only about 20 miles total.

It would appear that the combination of Sunday driving with icy road caught a lot of people out.
