Few of us will forget 2016. It has been a momentous year, with all manner of change. Drivers have felt a few bumps in the road too. From the state of the nation’s roads, to the ups and downs of BBC Top Gear, the year has taken as many twists and turns as an Alpine pass.

Then came warnings that the nation’s roads were in such a dire state, it would cost eye-watering sums of money to repair all the potholes.
