Horses Horses Horses (name that movie…)
Horses get their own crossings.These are interchangeably referred to as Equestrian Crossings or Pegasus Crossings. They are wider than those for pedestrians, have pavement barriers and either one or two sets of controls, one being set at a higher position so the rider can operate them while mounted.
The question on the theory test related to horses is one of the easiest:
When approaching a horse and rider and you wish to pass, you should:
- pass very slowly, giving a wide berth
- honk your horn to alert the rider of your presence
- pass as quickly as possible
- wait until the rider stops the horse, then pass
Seriously. Those were the choices.
The signage for horses comes in many varieties
This Horse and Rider sign has been “doctored” a bit by a graffiti artist
