Country Roads Government Warning to Motorists

 

A quiet country road near Ruthin.  No other vehicle involved

  
In a warning that 60% of fatalities occur on country roads and that drivers are often oblivious of the risk they pose to others, a campaign has been launched by the UK Government  to publicise the problem. 
 
Since on average 3 people die each day on country roads, a number nearly eleven times higher than on motorways, the government has felt it time to act and has issued the PRESS RELEASE below.
 
Not only does inconsiderate driving  endanger other drivers but also cyclists, walkers, and horse-riders for whom country lanes are an essential conduit for commuting or leisure.
 
Please take time to study and consider how YOU use the road.
