Q: The first motorway (highway, freeway, autoroute, Autobahn) in the UK celebrated its 50th anniversary last week. What was it called?

Answer to last week’s question: SCUBA stands for ‘Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus’. And the closest answer was from Tim Robinson.

M1 – It didn’t have a speed limit back then either. That was until people started to use it as a test track for performance cars… specifically the AC Cobra which managed 180mph. Back then it probably took from Watford Gap to Leeds to slow down.

Of course, I could be wrong.
