I am amused by this BBC article on Britain's most intimidating road junctions.. Particularly this comment: Between them, Birmingham, London and Glasgow took eight of the top 10 spots.

Strangely enough, I had no difficulty in guessing what the other two junctions in the list were. Yes, the Swindon and Hemel magic roundabouts, at #4 and #9.

(As someone who negotiated the Hanger Lane gyratory (#5) twice a day for several years, I think I can cope with just about anything, though I'll concede that the Glasgow ones are a real pain.)

I'm not entirely sure why Kingston Bridge doesn't count as one of the M8 junctions in Glasgow, myself. I certainly messed up trying to get to our hotel last time we were up there, and ended up crossing it.

For me, it's Piccadilly and Five Ways I've not driven through, though I might have been through the latter.
