The study, which was done by Continental Tyres, discovered that by driving at 30mph traveling the driver would go through the exact same horizontal forces while he or she would while driving around Brands Hatch or on a rollercoaster.

Tracey Hyem of Continental Tyres said: "At 30mph in a typical family members hatchback, some British roadways are bendy they exert the kind of causes you would anticipate on a racetrack."

A selection of your remarks, and suggestions of other bendy roadways, appears here.

I cannot say I driven/ridden most of the roads in UK, but i've been on zig zag slope, part of the bendiest road talked about right here, and I also must state that they are most likely appropriate. It is not only a section of 5 or 6 switch-back hairpins however it is additionally on a steep slope. I done numerous parts of Scotland, Wales and Cornwall, all mentioned previously but nothing because severe as zig zag.

We reside in East Anglia. We haven't seen a bend for months!
Lee Maguire, Newmarket

What about the A57 Snake Pass? Definitely title speaks because of its self!!

The street through Cheddar Gorge in Somerset is perfectly bendy and far longer than Zig Zag Hill, plus you can get the added advantageous asset of some dazzling views.

Try the mountain road to Applecross within the western highlands.

"At 30mph... some Uk roads are bendy they exert the type of causes you'd anticipate on a racetrack." So decelerate then! I throw in the towel.
Stuart, York, The United Kingdomt

The B2150 from Denmead to Droxford has outstanding number of dips and bends, looks boring on map but is a drivers' delight! The Morestead roadway from Corhampton to Winchester offers a similarly spirited drive.
Mark Collings, Portsmouth, Hants

We can anticipate the day if the EEC moves its attention from straightening our bananas to straightening our roadways.
