The road safety charity, Brake, wants speed limits on rural roads reduced to 50mph.
Figures out today from the charity and Direct Line reveal that male drivers are more likely to overtake blind and speed on country roads.
24% of males admitted to risking the chance of head-on crashes by overtaking blind and 44% said they had broken the 60mph speed limit on country roads.
Our advice is avoid overtaking unless essential, stay well within limits, and slow right down for bends, brows, in bad conditions and in communities. Hang back, slow down and chill out. Prioritising safety above arriving a few minutes faster could spare your family or someone else a huge amount of heartache.
