It just seems to illogical to design a system that has the potential to force the driver to drive even further.

UK Example.
The drive from Leeds to Newquay is around 6 hours not allowing for your breaks every 2 hours and traffic delays on the "A" roads. The last 2 hours of the trip is on "A" roads as there are no motorways anywhere near Newquay and the "A" roads there swap between 1 and 2 lanes and can be quite congested, especially in the summer months.

So worse case scenario is, you drive for 6 hours (not allowing for stops/traffic) the light comes on, you then need to drive 2 hours back to the motorway (traffic allowing) - go up the motorway, turn round and come back again. Your 6 hour trip is now over 10 - 11 hours with light traffic. It doesn't make sense to me........

It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
