ive been passed 3 years and ive still not been on a motorway.. Ive had my own car for almost a year, and i plan on instead of going my normal route home from uni on enrolement day, im going to ride down the 2 junctions til i get to mine. Hopefully it will be pretty quiet at 11am and i should be ok, since im pretty confident driving on normal roads, and doing 60mph
if youre driving near a lorry with bales of hay on the back / things that can fly off - overtake it.
i was driving behind a massive lorry once and something fell off it so i had to swerve out the way :/
wasnt much fun i can tell ya.
If you cant see the trucks mirrors then he cant see you. that is an important thing to remember as well as people dont always check their mirrors or indicate when changing lanes so awareness is key I would say.
Here is some advice don't be such a big pussy. I couldnt wait till I got on a motorway and i did so three days after I passed. The first time you drive yourself to 100 is awsome.
remember: its a LOT harder for truck drivers to see traffic along side them. esp if your on the passenger side. he doesnt have the option of lookin over his shoulder. and depending where you are, you might be in a blind spot. oh, and headlights on in daylight? why? 'oh look, i have my headlights on so when im in your blind spot you can see me'
i was on a motorway yesterday (m25 coming back from heathrow). and honestly, i was a tiny bit nervous about it, although i've been driving since last november and have been on one before.
basically, it's fine. all you've got to look out for is the distance of cars behind you if you want to change lanes. because they can be going at well over the 70mph limit, you've got to make sure they're far enough behind before switching into the next lane. that said, there isn't much need to go in the fast lane. stick to the left and middle lanes. and if there are four lanes, then watch out for the signs signifying that the two left lanes will merge (because that often happens).
Er because I had the word cok in my signature?
Edit, hey hey you got banned once so you can hardly talk.
Bad enough that you want to do something that STUPID and risk the lives of everyone around you on the road, but to encourage another just-passed driver?? I can picture you: crappy...polo is that in your avatar? with add-ons. driving like a moron. i really, really have a thing against stupid, arrogant teenagers who drive like that. Crash, scare yourself, and then grow up, but try not to take anyone else with you.
Yeah because it really looks like a polo mr blind. (if you Partially sighted I’m sorry to offend). And it was night and there was nobody around.
P.s if you paid any attention to the road around you then you would realize that people in the fast lane do this every moment of every day and beyond.
But then you probably piss everyone off by doing 68 in the middle lane dontcha?
