Animals can be a hazard on country roads. Whether it’s a herd of cows heading to or from milking, or sheep and deer just wandering into the road, you need to keep your wits about you and be ready to slow down or stop suddenly. Give extra care around deer or wild animal signs, especially in late spring and early autumn.
Driving on country roads makes different demands on motorists than other types of road, with the speeds and lack of uniformity of the roads contributing to their hazardousness. But by staying alert and conscious of speed and road conditions can help drivers stay safe.
