Was travelling on a long stretch of highway to Johor the other day.
I would love to share some information regarding my observation on the overtaking lane (right most).
Before I proceed to go into this topic further and deeper, please bear in mind safety is always number one.
Observation as below:
- If you stay close to a car, most car will think you are following them, and travelling together at same speed. (Avoid tailgating please, not safe)
- If you signal to the right, about 50% of driver might give way. (Provided those are considerate enough)
- If you flick your highbeam, well aware driver will give way. (A quick double flick is suffice)
- If you turn on your high beam after all the actions above, but the road hogger is still in front, it is proven the driver is self-centered. Avoid him/her at all cost, such driver will cause accident sooner or later.
It is interesting to see how driver behaves after such a long time did not cruise on such long stretch of highway.
