Living in the beautiful North Devon countryside near Barnstaple, it is important to be able to safely negotiate the the twists and turns of the country roads and narrow lanes.
Statistics show rural roads can be the most dangerous roads to drive on. Around 66% of people killed on Britain's' roads, are killed on rural roads. Motorways may seem more frightening, but statistics show they are far safer then the seemingly quieter roads of the countryside.
Many inexperienced drivers take corners too fast, especially on rural roads where the severity of a bend can be hard to judge. You should always reduce your speed as you approach a bend. Remember the bend may hide a horse and rider, a slow-moving vehicle or another hazard...such as pedestrians and dog walkers, so be vigilant at all times.
