Road Safety Advice
Stay alert and don’t be complacent. Last week there were reports of vehicles failing to give way or stop, dangerous overtaking and driving on a roundabout the wrong way which is more common than you may think. Slow down and give yourself plenty of distance so you have time to react if any of the above were to happen to you.
