You never know what’s just around the bend…59% of all road fatalities occur on country roads, in 2015 alone 10,307 people were killed or seriously injured. The most common reason for these incidents is loss of control which is frequently associated with inappropriate speed at bends.
Bends can hide unexpected hazards around the corner, such as animals or large oncoming vehicles.
The THINK! Country Roads campaign encourages drivers to anticipate the hazards that may lie ahead and ‘brake before the bend, not on it’.
