Rural roads are often interspersed with villages, which often have strict (and strictly enforced) speed restrictions and traffic calming measures. Drive cautiously and at a moderate speed (most have posted limits of 20 or 30mph) through villages. Be aware of these – sometimes sudden – changes in speed and be especially vigilant around school drop-off and pick-up times.
Many local authorities introduce stricter restrictions at during these times. There’s also the hazard of traffic emerging from side roads and pedestrians hidden by parked cars.
