Contact me

Hello! I'm Chris. I run this website. You can contact me using this form. It's always nice to hear from you.

Before you start, the answers to all the most common questions are in the FAQ, and for anything else, you'll find the SABRE forums will provide you with an answer more reliably and more quickly than I can.

I don't have the time to reply to all the emails I receive, but I reply to as many as I can. But please don't get the wrong idea! I'm actually very friendly and your email is more than welcome.

The small print

Here are some things I can't help you with.

  • I am not the government, your local council or Highways England.
  • I am not a highway engineer or a civil engineer.
  • I am not able to advise you on anything to do with traffic law.
  • I don't have official information about the road network. (For traffic counts, precise location of roadside assets, and anything else of that nature, I can only direct you to the Department for Transport.)
  • I'm not going to give you a job.
  • I can't help you get a speed limit, road classification or parking restriction changed.
  • I can't explain to you why a specific speed limit, road classification or parking restriction exists.
  • I can't help you get a parking ticket or speeding fine overturned, or offer you any advice about them.

A new set of Ringways pages are now online, looking at unbuilt motorways and road projects west of London.

No smoke without ire

London's Ultra Low Emission Zone has just expanded to cover the whole inner city, and across the UK, other cities are implementing their own Clean Air Zones. Is this the future?

Devon help us

Road signs are colour coded for different types of road, but in Devon there are more colours than anywhere else. What do Devon's colourful signs mean?

Have you seen...

Alley by gaslight

Some of Central London's quieter streets are still, surprisingly, lit by old and rather beautiful gas lanterns. Here are a few, by day and by night.
