Can you read the road and see the hazards?

With summer in full swing, many of us will be using Kent's country roads for those all-important trips to the coast or days out with the kids.

For those who are occasional country drivers or those who are more regular users, we hope to remind you that although the national speed limit remains the legal limit on many of these roads, this speed isn't a target speed.

Take your time, read the road and expect the unexpected. Country roads can present an array of hazards many of us aren't used to seeing on urban roads and motorways - a pedestrian on a narrow lane, a farm vehicle moving slowly or a car overtaking on a blind bend - all are possible killers.

Please drive at an appropriate speed, it could save your life.
