Driving in the countryside can be difficult because of the sparse, narrow, twisting roads that often have poor surfaces.

Students could research the difference between A, B and C roads, locating examples on a map as well as images of each kind. They could also compare A roads to country roads and work out the relative hazards of each. Is it more dangerous to drive on a country road or a motorway? Students could discuss.

Students could produce an advertising campaign, warning drivers about the dangers of driving on country roads. They could produce posters or write scripts for TV adverts to act out. They could also produce radio adverts or even a handbook, 'A Guide to Driving on Country Roads', containing safety tips for drivers.
