Cyclists and pedestrians are not as common as vehicles, especially outside urban areas, so it's crucial to watch out for them and give them sufficient space on the road. Road conditions can vary, with some rural areas having narrower roads and limited signage. Additionally, local drivers may occasionally exceed speed limits or engage in aggressive driving behaviors, so maintaining defensive driving practices is advisable.
