What should I do if I live in the countryside where there is no pavement?
If you are in a rural area without pavements, you should walk on the right-hand side of the road to face oncoming traffic.
This may seem more frightening than walking with your back to the cars, but it is safer because it means you can see vehicles coming and can step out of their way if you need to.
If there is a pavement, however, you should use it – but still be aware of the traffic at all times!
Cars can legally travel at up to 60 miles per hour on narrow, dark country lanes. Never walk on these roads at night and be very careful when walking along these roads during daylight. Keep to the edge of the road and wear bright, visible clothing.
