Roads argument driven to the point of madness

'If we build more roads, more people will drive on them good, say I - that is what they are there for (AJ 30.1.03).'

Cracking idea! If we followed that logic there would soon be no place in the UK where we could fail to hear, smell and see traffic belching out a cocktail of pollutants contributing to a range of ills, stretching from asthma to global warming.More road miles, more road deaths and injuries! Excellent!

Austin Williams has made it clear over the years that he will not sleep easy in his bed until we all have a sports car surgically attached to our nether parts.

But really, do we have to put up with this nonsense in the AJ?

There comes a point when 'provocative' turns into plain bonkers, and I think that point is disappearing at speed in Austin's rear view mirror.
