Driving safely on single track roads 09/11/16

There are many rural areas in the UK where roads are only wide enough for single vehicles.

Single track roads will typically have 'passing places' every few hundred metres to enable 2 car/van sized vehicles to pass each other. If you come upon a vehicle coming towards you or wanting to overtake from behind, pull in to the nearest passing place on your left or wait next to a passing place on your right - allowing enough room for the vehicle in front to pull in to it.

If possible, always give way to vehicles coming up a hill towards you.

If you have just passed a passing place and a vehicle is coming towards you, reverse back into it and let the other vehicle pass, if it is safe to do so.

Watch your speed down single track roads and especially when passing pedestrians, cyclists or horse riders.
