This is National Road Safety week and we would like you to share far and wide this message for other road users.
Next time you pass a horse and carriage on the road, please be patient and pass wide and slow. It is the Highway Code’s recommendation that you pass slowly at 10miles per hour and give at least 2 metres distance between you and the carriage.
When approaching a horse and carriage, your actions could frighten the horse and risk life changing injuries, so please be cautious and considerate to other vulnerable road users.
