I Do not get too close to the 1rehit:le 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 ifthe yehiele ahead suddenly slows or stops. Keep track a reasonable distanoe.

When it tool-ts like a chance to pass is coming up. start to accelerate bul stay in the right lane and don‘t get too close. Time your move so you will be increasing speed as the time eomes to more into the other lane. lt' 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, wait your turn. But take care that someone isn‘t trying to pass you as you pull out to pass the slot:-r 1vehicle. Remember to glance over your shoulder and check the blind spot.

0 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 I11: passed vehiele 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 centres. The vehicle you just passed may seem to be farther away from you than it really is.)

I Try not to pass more than one vehicle at a time on

two-lane roads. RoConsider before passing the next vehicle.

Don‘t use rtake a slowly moving vehicle too rapidly. Even though the brake lights are not flashing. it may be slowing down or starting to turn.

lt‘ you're being passed. make it easy for the following driver to get ahead of you. Perhaps you can ease as iirtle to the right.
