Adapt driv­ing for road con­di­tions

The Arran Banner - - Letters -

Sir,

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
