You do get used to the noise though - our main problem was that bikers use it as a racing route at weekends and when they were roaring past we literally couldn't hear ourselves speak. I wholeheartedly agree. We lived on the A6 with a restricted 30mph through our area, the motorbikes were the worst, upwards of 20 to 30 all together at times heading for Matlock Bath. Traffic and lorries weren't so bad and there was very little traffic after 9pm during the week but as the road went through the valley and we lived halfway up the hill you couldn't stop the sound risingNothing would make me buy a house on a main road again unless I grew deaf with age
