The M1 south of Leeds I hate and avoid.
The only one that I have to use is the M25 between M11 and Dart crossing. Doubt that we’ll be going on it this year regretfully.
While the idea may be OK to a point, it’s the drivers of vehicles that seem to disengage their brains or eyes.
If on one and breakdown get out and over the barrier onto the grass and move away from car towards the way you have come for a short distance.
