Happy birthday M4!

BBC NEWS | England | London | Actress Mansfield’s M4 connection

Apparently Jayne Mansfield cut the ribbon opening the M4 45 years ago. 45 years of the M4! Wow. I wonder what the date of the first traffic jam was. Or the date of the first frustrated driver missing his flight because of said traffic.

Incidentally, I noticed they didn’t mention that Jayne Mansfield met her end in a legenedary car crash, ultimately spawning the urban legend that she was decapitated (she wasn’t – her blonde wig flew off and the story grew out of that).
