• Drive at speeds that re­flect the sur­round­ings — sealed road or un­sealed road, pot­holes, nar­row roads.

• Be cour­te­ous if you come across stock on the road. Don’t sound your horn, rev your en­gine or pass at a speed that could spook stock or en­dan­ger peo­ple’s lives.

• Give stock and peo­ple plenty of room if you have to pass.

• If you come across a school bus, re­mem­ber the law says you must not ex­ceed 20km/h when pass­ing a sta­tionery school bus that has stopped to pick up chil­dren or drop them off.
