Ask The Expert – tips for driving on country roads #6



Slow-moving traffic

Another concern with tractors is that they slow down traffic, but it’s important to remember that they have as much right to be there as you, so remain patient. Don’t try any risky overtaking manoeuvres: make sure you have a clear view of the road ahead and there are no bends coming up.
The positive side is that many farm workers will move over to let you pass – plus, of course, they rarely travel very far on a public road, so they’ll soon turn off.
Caravans and trailer are more of an issue, but the advice about staying patient and staying safe is just as valid – if not more so.
