Imagine my surprise when I discovered this article on the Daily Telelgraph News site:
"There are fears that the recently opened Hindhead Tunnel in Surrey is being used as a racetrack by owners of sports cars. Drivers of Ferraris, Porches and Aston Martins are posting footage of their burn-ups on Youtube. (I will try and find the link shortly).
The tunnel's echoey acoustics have attracted the owners of powerful sports cars looking to drive and rev loudly down the mile-and-a-half-long route.
Despite a 70mph speed limit, the behaviour has lead to concerns that 'boy racers' who speed and drive anti-socially are making it dangerous for other road users.
But the Highways Agency said the tunnel's safety features include the UK's first radar-based incident detection system and 100 per cent CCTV coverage.
The tunnel which took three years to build is used by an estimated 30,000 vehicles a day dissects the famous Devil’s Punchbowl and was designed to take noisy traffic away from residents living nearby. "
