Adapt driving for road conditions
It was with interest that I read the criticism of Arran’s roads as described by the correspondent from Weston-super-Mare in the last week’s edition of the Banner.
I am minded to draw your correspondent’s attention to page 48 of the 2015 edition of the Highway Code, Rule 146 which says: ‘Adapt your diving to the appropriate type and condition of the road you are on ... take road and traffic conditions into account ... be prepared for difficult situations.’ That says it all, doesn’t it?
Writing as a cyclist, I can attest that Arran’s roads have improved but when descending the Boguillie at 40 to 50mph there are some potholes that constitute a serious risk to the imprudent rider.
Yours, Brian Grindall Torbeg
