    S3 M6 Toll 130+

    Quick story, was driving the gf to uni on sunday about 12pm on the M6 Toll southbound, in the left lane doing roughly 90mph, a car caught my eye in mirror by the time it looked up, an silver S3 passed me doing over 130mph easily, followed by what I think was an RX7. Was going silly fast, dont reckon it was anyone on here, just remembered so thought i would post it up.
    Also does anyone else find the toll very easy to speed on, I regulary feel im going slow as X5s, Jags etc are all touching a ton

    last time i was up the toll road, there was a four cop cars just picking people off for speeding!

    But, yes, it is rather easy.

    I used to regulary sit at a ton on the M6 toll without any problems, although I was passing through late at night so absolute minimal traffic and the road itself is extremely well built so no unexpected bumps.

    I normally don't see any Police at all on that stretch, but always aware that they might be waiting for me!! A very nice section of road indeed!

    130 is a silly speed for the middle of the day!

    Cause the M6 toll is such an accident blackspot!!!
    I don't think there's ever been so much as a minor accident on it ever.
    Luckily I've never seen any cops on it, it should be unrestricted as it's effectively a private road surely?

    I have heard they tried to get it de-restricted, but they failed!

    Ahhh, the good old M6 Speedway. Will never do over a ton, asking for it. Does seem to be plagued by the X5/Jag/BMW drivers as correctly poined out.
    Saw them a while back gunning from a bridge, and pulling the offenders at the booths, foolproof way of getting you, as theres no escape!!

    No problem! I never roll without my trusted RoadAngel, makes it a level playing field, but abide by the 100mph rule!
