It happens.  The road out of Isham is narrow and has no pavements (sidewalks, 
footpaths) in either direction, and those who choose to walk the three miles to 
Wellingborough or the two miles to Kettering (late night drunks, etc.) 
invariably wear dark clothing.  Walkers are supposed to walk on the 'wrong' 
side (facing oncoming traffic) but very few do.  A very definite and 
fairly common hazard, late at night.
