Yes, mate, tried that!! I always seemed to get stuck in traffic going through Southgate, though. Nevertheless, it's not too bad and certainly better than continuing through to Arnos Grove! My tried and trusted route now is actually to 'tough out' the lights and get off at Green Lanes, just past what used to be the Jet garage (I call it the 'gangster garage' - everyone refuelling there seems to own a very tasty car and they get out of it cautiously as though they're expecting a drive by shooting! ), then I cut south of Broomfield Park, north of Arnos Park, along Morton Way, and through to E Barnet, and eventually Barnet, via Osidge La, etc. It can be tedious, but there no lights and few hold ups generally. The only thing p*ssing me off is getting stuck behind a 184 bus!Kyle93 wrote:
Have you tried coming off at the A10 roundabout and then taking the A111? You'd cut out driving through Palmers Green
You're absolutely right, but I can't resist taking a few of them on sometimes and I think they're surprised by how much a meagre little Vauxhall can give them a run for their money in their fifty grand plus motors!!Kyle93 wrote:Not all of us are like that! I usually find that it's young guys in Mercedes, BMW, Audi and VW who are the worst drivers for that sort of thing.
