  • THE M25 has been voted the country’s most depressing drive.

    The UK’s busiest road, the 119-mile London orbital route is nicknamed the “longest car park in Britain”.

    Now it has been chosen in a poll as the road most likely to drive motorists to despair. The M25 pipped the Birmingham stretch of the M6 to the title in a study by Motorcycle News.

    Main factors that make a road depressing are pot holes, jams and speed cameras, the research found.

    Other roads shamed in the survey are the M5 near Bristol and the M8 between Glasgow and Edinburgh.

    Paul Watters of the AA advised drivers: “De-stress yourself by not being tired, having the right music on in the car and leaving plenty of time for the journey. Then grin and bear it.”
