Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.Road protest in the United Kingdom usually occurs as a reaction to a stated intention by the empowered authorities to build a new road, or to modify an existing road. Protests may also be made by those wishing to see new roads built or improvements made to existing roads. Motivations for protests may be altruistic or selfish. In some cases, protests have also acted as a training ground for individuals and groups who continue to be active in campaigning and advocacy. You may wish to also refer to a detailed list of individual protests. Motivations have changed over time. Early actions, such as the response to the 1970s London urban motorway proposals, tended to be based on local environmental and social issues.

Road speed limit enforcement in the United Kingdom is the action taken by appropriately empowered authorities to check that road vehicles are complying with the UK speed limit in force on roads and highways. Methods used include roadside speed traps set up and operated by the police and automated roadside speed camera systems which may incorporate the use of an automatic number plate recognition system. Traditionally the police would have used stopwatches to measure the time taken for a vehicle to cover a known distance, but latterly they have speed guns and automated in-vehicle systems at their disposal.

Vehicular cycling (VC) is the practice of driving bicycles on roads in a manner that is visible, predictable, and in accordance with the principles for driving a vehicle in traffic. The phrase was coined by John Forester in the early 1970s to differentiate the assertive traffic cycling style and practices that he learned in the United Kingdom from the deferential cycling style and practices that he found to be typical in the United States. Under the international Vienna Convention on Road Traffic (1968), a bicycle (or "cycle", as referenced by the convention) is defined to be a vehicle and a cyclist is considered to be a driver. In a minority of jurisdictions (the states of Arizona, California, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, New York, and Texas in the United States ) a bicycle is legally defined as a "device" rather than as a vehicle, but in all cases operators of bicycles share a basic set of rights and responsibilities with operators of motor vehicles.
The M25 motorway is a 117 mile (188 km) orbital motorway which encircles Greater London, United Kingdom except for the tolled Dartford Crossing (A282) where it crosses the River Thames to the east of London. It was first mooted early in the 20th Century, a few sections were constructed in the early 1970s based on the later abandoned London Ringways and the motorway was finally completed in 1986. It is one of the world's longest orbital roads and is also one of the busiest and most congested sections of the British motorway network. It has been widened in a number of places and currently varies between 6 lanes to 12 lanes in width (across both carriageways) and 196,000 vehicles were recorded in a single day near London Heathrow Airport. Plans to widen additional sections to 8 lanes (4 in each direction) were scaled back in 2009 in response to escalating costs.

The Isle of Man TT (Tourist Trophy) Race is a motorcycle racing event held on the Isle of Man and was for many years the most prestigious motor-cycle race in the world. The event was part of the FIM Motorcycle Grand Prix World Championship during the period 1949-1976 before being transferred to the United Kingdom after safety concerns and run by the FIM as the British Grand Prix for the 1977 season. The Isle of Man TT Races became part of the TT Formula 1 Championship during the period 1977-1990 to preserve the events racing status. From 1989 the racing has been developed by the Isle of Man Department of Tourism as the Isle of Man TT Festival. The race is run in a time-trial format on public roads closed for racing by the provisions of an Act of Tynwald (the parliament of the Isle of Man). The first race was held on Tuesday 28 May 1907 and was called the International Auto-Cycle Tourist Trophy. The event was organised by the Auto-Cycle Club over 10 laps of the St John's Short Course of 15 miles 1,470 yards for road-legal touring motor-cycles with exhaust silencers, saddles, pedals and mud-guards.
