The Exmoor Coast

A Closer Look at the A39 - Westwards from Minehead

Suicide Lane on the A39 west of Minehead

A rare beast! We have a real live 3-lane 'suicide' carriageway as we climb away from Minehead.
Why do they call it a suicide lane? Well, the lanes are left-side, right-side and suicide because
that is the risk you take in the middle lane.
