The M6 is the highway from hell, according to a new survey of motorists.
It topped the poll as the road drivers most hate to travel on.
More than half of the 1,000 people questioned, 51 per cent, said the stretch of motorway linking Birmingham to the North-west is the worst in Britain for congestion.
Another 25 per cent said London's orbital motorway, the M25, was the worst, with the M60, Manchester's orbital motorway, third.
The M1, Glasgow's M8, and the A1 between Yorkshire and the North-east were also named by drivers for making their blood boil.
Although a £7 billion package of improvements was promised by the Transport Secretary in 2003 to keep traffic flowing on major roads such as the M25 and M1, the misery still continues for many. The poll was conducted by Virgin Cars.
David Cook, operations director, said: "With the introduction of the M6 Toll, we anticipated that this stretch of motorway would prove more popular in our poll, however it seems the scheme has not found favour with most."
Meanwhile, the M4 motorway is becoming a corridor of love, it has emerged.
Centres along the motorway linking London with South Wales are better known for their technology companies.
But as the industry continues to spread along the route, increasing numbers of its workers are using their hightech skills to look for love on the internet. This ploy to find a mate was used by TV series The Office's boss David Brent.
The trend was noticed by Match.com UK.
