If you should ever find yourself in South Lanarkshire in Scotland, you may come across a small village called Carmichael. There is a clan by this name as well, and there is a centre in Carmichael that reveals more about their history. There is much else to discover in the village too, but we are fairly sure finding injury solicitors in Carmichael would be nowhere near the top of your list.
Village life can be very quiet compared to living in a city. If you are visiting a village, you should take special care when walking around, as there may not always be pavements to use. Keep an eye on traffic as you walk around too, just to be certain you are not in any danger.
Staying safe as a pedestrian
In a town or city, it is often easier to make sure you are safe while you are walking around. There are pavements and proper crossing points, for example, so you can use those to keep well out of the way of traffic.
This is one of the reasons why the speed limit through villages tends to be lower than the national speed limit that otherwise often applies to roads like these. You should always be alert and ready for traffic, and to walk into oncoming traffic if it is safe to do so, but there are cases where you might be in potential danger if someone is speeding. They could hit you because they don’t have time to see you, even though you are taking care. You may not have time to do anything about it.
