Watch out for joggers

With warmer weather and longer daylight hours, more people are out on the roads so be prepared to give them extra space and consideration:

  • Look well ahead to see joggers, pedestrians, horse riders and cyclists early
  • Look for signs of distraction – are they wearing earphones? If so, they may be distracted, so give them plenty of room
  • Be prepared for them to make unexpected changes of direction without looking first (expect the unexpected!)
  • Remember they may not hear you (their music may be too loud) so sounding a horn is not necessarily going to alert them to your presence
  • On country roads there may be runners round any bend – so drive in a way that allows you to deal with this safely
