It would be funny if we could actually get this one pin pointed.

it just thought that some UK forumer could recognize that place. in a german autobahn-forum they have "guess the location"-threads and the people there seem to know every kilometer of the deutsche autobahn and are able to recognize every place, although there are only the road and some trees on a picture... I'll look later for a UK-Forum. Goin' out now.

We used to have that too on the Dutch Autosnelwegen forum.

Amazing some people can just know the exact place by only showing a crash barrier and some lightposts.

That is absolutely incredible that they managed to pinpoint it so accurately!

I could tell it was a UK road though, the markings reminded me too much of home.

Is he sure? If I see right, the highway on the photo turns left in the back, whereas the A13 turns right after the interchange (overpass).

Denmark does - well most of them anyway ( no "look left" here )


Based on the lamps I will agree it's a mirrored pic of Thurrock in the UK

The highway itself looks nothing like a highway in the US northeast. The road markings are all different.
