Nicking Allan's idea somewhat, it might be interesting to have 2 topics

1. UK motorways...........where they go from and to as have been asked this is quizzes and
2. UK motorway service stations and which motorway they are on as I have been asked to name the service stations on the M6 in a quiz b4 now.

Might be useful.......:)
