So here are some tips for passing: I “Drive ahead." look down the road. to the sides. and

to crossroads for situations that might affect your passing patterns. If you have any doubt whatsoerrer about making a successful pass. wait for a better time.

Watch for traffic signs, pavement markings, and lines. If you can see a Sign up ahead that might indicate a turn or an intersection, delay your pass. A broken center line usually indicates it's all right to pass {providing the road ahead is clear}. Never cross a solid line on your side of the lane or a double solid line even if the road seems empty of approaching traffic.

11' you suspect that the driver of the vehicle you want

to pass isn't aware of your presence. tap the horn a couple of times before passing.

Do not get too close to the vehicle you want to pass while you‘re awaiting an opportunity. For one thing, following too closely reduces your area of vision, especially if you‘re following a larger vehicle. Also. you won‘t have adequate space if the vehicle ahead suddenly slows or stops. Keep back a reasonable distance.

0 When it looks like a chance to pass is coming up.

start to accelerate but stay in the right lane and don’t get too close. Time your move so you will be increasing speed as the time comes to move into the other lane. If the way is clear to pass. you will have a “running start" that more than makes up for the distance you would lose by dropping back. And if something happens to cause you to cancel your pass. you need only slow down and drop back again and wait for another opportunity.

if other cars are lined up to pass a slow vehicle. wail your turn. But take care that someone isn’t trying to pass you as you pull out to pass the slow vehicle. Remember to glance over your shoulder and cited: the blind spot.

Check your mirrors, glance over your shoulder, and start your left lane change signal before moving out of the right lane to pass. 1When you are far enough ahead of the passed vehicle to see its front in your inside mirror. activate your right lane change signal and move back into the right lane. {Remember that your right outside mirror is convert. The vehicle you just passed may seem to be 1Farther away from you than it really is.)
