With bridge strikes costing the UK economy £23million every year, it is time for large vehicle drivers to take note of vehicle dimensions and fully prepare for a compliant route.
Travelling goes hand in hand when owning a horse and taking to Britain’s roads can be difficult with a horse onboard, which leaves drivers and their horses exposed to restricted narrow roads and unnecessary bridge strikes. On average over four bridge strikes are taking place each day causing major disruptions.
A 2019 survey by the British Horse Society (BHS), stated that 315 horses have tragically died on Britain’s roads over the past 10 years. The BHS received 3,737 road incidents from the public involving horses from 2018-2019, however, it is widely regarded that only 1 in 10 incidents are being reported and the figure is deemed to be significantly higher.
