I live in a place like that, 2 lane highway with ZERO lawenforcement, no shoulders,
have soem trails about half mile up the road, but I dont bother. Even though I am in the right legally, aint worth diend over. Thats why they make horse trailers. load up and go ride somewhere.

My trainer worked on the ground with my mare while I drove the car down the road. A couple times I would feed her carrots from the car window. Agarbage truck went by later that week and she followed it-must have been looking for her carrot!

Section 265:104 Approaching Horses.

They do here. Unfortunately some folks are clueless. I live on a back road in the middle of nowhere and there are several people who feel the road is an extension of the local racetrack. One day I yelled at the same kid 3 times to slow down. My daughter was standing near me on his last pass and told me who it was. She thought I was horrible for telling his mother.

I have one stupid lady who stops the car inches from the horse and blows her horn, she does it to squirrels or anything in the road. One day when she was blowing her horn at a turtle I went out moved the turtle back to the swamp and tried to explain things to her. She don't get it. I would have had better luck explaining it to the old snapping turtle.

I do have one neighbor with a segway. That kind of boggles my mare's mind.

I've wondered if the police would do anything if given video evidence (go pro) of bad behaviour by a motorist.

I used to work as an officer in the next town. I'm aware of one time where the rider insisted on somebody being charged. The police wouldn't prosecute so she signed and prosecuted her own complaint. The way NH law is set up the police had to serve the summons. She won. The fine was kind of minimal however it did show on his driving record afterwards. I think I would do the same if the circumstances were right. There is only a "sort of" police dept. here and I doubt state police would get involved.
