Please be patient. Towing vehicles are restricted to 90kph on the open road.
New Zealand roads are often poorly constructed, with few safe places to allow a vehicle with horses onboard to pull over. The gravel edges, and often steep grades or sudden drop off of tarmac that tip a trailer sideways are dangerous for horse floats to use.
Make sure you can see the towing vehicles mirrors. Following too close behind the trailer means the driver cannot see you waiting to pass!
Horse Sense on the Roads has been created by the NZ Horse Network to raise awareness of road safety for horse riders, and educate all users about safe road sharing.
