Road Safety and Horses

Horse riding is a popular activity in West Cornwall but I regularly hear of near misses with speeding cars on country lanes.

I set up an opportunity for Debbie Smith to meet with Andrew Jones, the Roads Minister in the Department of Transport to share her concerns. Debbie set up a popular petition regarding the safety of horses and their riders on our roads last year and has received incredible support.

Andrew Jones was very helpful and agreed to look at how the Government could raise awareness of horses on our country lanes.

He agreed to write to me to set out a list of actions the Department would consider taking.
