and Home Counties Map.
Encircled by the M25, this map shows the 'Home Counties'.
has many Motorways/Freeways! (marked in blue on map). Legal
speed limit on Motorways is 70mph for Cars and 50mph for Heavy
Goods Vehicles. This is also average speed! There is only
one Toll bridge on the M25, the rest of the Motorway system
is completely Toll-free! Our main roads (marked in green on
map) are called 'A' roads and our secondary roads are 'B'
roads. 'A' roads are either single carriageway(2 lane) with
maximum speed of 30/40mph. or duel carriageway.(4 lane) with
maximum speed limit if 30/60 mph. Both limits depend on signposts!
'B' roads are normally well maintained even if they seem not
to lead anywhere! These are the roads in the country where
you will see the most of our beautiful countryside - but also
where you may get stuck behind a farm tractor! Don't be in
a rush on 'B' roads, a high proportion of UK fatal accidents
are on 'B' roads!
