1 Keep your speed in check
Country roads are narrow, winding and often have poor visibility – this paired with oncoming traffic can be a nightmare. You may find that the speed limits on country roads are higher than you think – often, they’ll be the national speed limit (unless stated otherwise), which is 60mph! Now I don’t know about you, but this seems pretty fast for me, especially if the roads are quite dangerous as they are. Our advice on this is to drive at a speed you’re comfortable with and not aim for the speed limit should you not feel safe or confident doing so.
