The summer sees a huge increase in leisure traffic as holiday makers pour into our beautiful part of the UK. More so than at any other time, it means that all road users must show mutual respect for each other, especially on our narrow rural and country roads.
Give special consideration to vulnerable roads users – those on two wheels whether pedal powered or motorised or those riding horses. All have a perfect right to be there.
The recommended space to leave when passing someone on two wheels or four feet, when it is safe to do so, is 1.5 metres (4ft 11ins).
