    Even on the narrowest part of the sort of hard shoulder there is room to pass Pedestrians, cyclists and joggers. The road is wide and safe enough to do so.

    A lack of concentration or just shouldn’t be driving?

    In the past, I was advised to always walk towards oncoming traffic; at least you could see the incoming traffic, that couldn’t see you!
