To ask that you don't treat country lanes like a playground

Not a rant, just a reminder! 😊
I live in the countryside and this time of year, when the sun is out, more and more drivers are going for leisurely drives, and more and more drivers do so dangerously. Please please remember that the warmer months mean that lanes are more busy with vulnerable traffic like cyclists and horseriders, and speeding around corners can be fatal. Regardless of whether or not you agree with them being on the road, please be careful for their sake and yours.

YANBU - I live in the countryside and rule of thumb we go by is you have to expect a horse/massive tractor around every corner and drive in a mannner which means you could always stop.

People drive like arse holes around our local lanes.

Yup, agree 100%. And national speed limit on said lanes does not mean anyone should be driving at 60!

What MrsCog said. There are loads of cyclists and walkers around even in some unexpected areas so do be careful.

YANBU my dad's mantra of only drive as fast as you can see dictates how I use country lanes or any other road for fat matter. If I can't stop in the distance I can see then I'm travelling too fast.
