The M25 London orbital is known as a road where motorists spend a lot of time going precisely nowhere.

It carries 165,000 vehicles per day.
There are an estimated 25,000 roundabouts in the UK.
The busiest road in the world is Interstate 405 (the San Diego Freeway) in Orange County, California, USA. It has a peak-hour volume of 25500 vehicles on a 1.5km (0.9 miles) stretch between Garden Grove Freeway and Seal Beach Boulevard.
The US interstate connects 45 of the 50 state capitals, including the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. The five state capitals not directly served by the interstate systems are Juneau, AK; Dover, DE; Jefferson City, MO; Carson City, NV; and Pierre, SD.
The M6 is said to be the most haunted route, with sightings including Roman legionnaires.
