  • Stuck on the m73

    Hi all,

    I'm stuck in traffic on the m73 since 16:00!

    Any other e forum Scottish members stuck on the road (car park) and fancy a chat? So bored lol!

    What's the weather like where everyone is? It's been crazy in the central belt today.

    Cheers
    Garrie

        Plenty of "traffic jam in bad weather" shots to take then, Garrie. Hope you've got your camera with you!

        Hope you're not too late getting home.

                  9 hours? If it was me there'd be several patches of yellow snow by now!

                  Soon be time to turn round and go back the other way!

                        OMG

                        I've been to bed and you're still in it .. I do feel for you I would be tearing my hair out (I'm not good at patience)

                        One question in my mind every time I see the pictures on the TV is why isn't it a legal requirement to have snow chains in the UK. We see so many pictures of sliding cars and lorries, and it just takes one to block a road (after which they aren't of use admittedly).

                        I have to admit on only bought them again after problems last year, but there is often a lane free when you see the pictures of roads
