7 facts about roads that will tank up your trick

They’re a part of our everyday life, and we don’t have to think about them much. They’re just kind of, there, to be driven on and walked beside.

But there’s a lot more to them than you might think. Fasten your seat-belts, as we take you on a journey around the UK's roads.

7. Winter is pothole season

Potholes are formed when water seeps into cracks in the road, and then freezes in cold weather. When water freezes, it expands and so it damage the tarmac and cracks it even further, and this process is repeated until a pothole is formed.

6. Zebras and pelicans aren’t the only types of animals that have road crossings - toucans do, too

A toucan crossing allows both cyclists and pedestrians to cross the road at the same time. It got its name as 'two-can' cross. Classic road safety humour.

 

5. You’ve probably run over a sleeping policeman before

In New Zealand, they’re called ‘judder bars’, which is a very accurate description of how much it makes you rattle in your car when you drive over one.
