RURAL DRIVING TIPS
When travelling in the country, watch out for changing conditions and decrease your speed to compensate for these conditions.
It may also take some time for an ambulance or rescue team to get to you.
Many rural areas have NO or poor cell phone reception.
The road engineering differs in rural places where there can be narrow and unsealed roads.
There are narrow bridges, ditches and or trenches and trees all over our rural road network, which increase the risk of injury or death in crashes.
Driving around stock? Wait for the instructions from the farm staff to drive on.
If you have the head lights on, turn them off.
If they stop, rev the engine but do NOT blow the horn or make other loud sounds
Keep left and slowly drive through.
