Well that's simple: I'm stupid and you're either blind or don't read what's written, like that bit where I agreed with you. :roll:

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

by your early position on approach will give drivers an earlier view of you and it only matters what Side of the road you are on if the driver emerges into your path on approach. There's some research that shows that experienced drivers will only look where they expect other vehicles to be, and onl...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

. . . the view is only restricted from a near side approach so by extending straddle the centre line on the approach gives you equal distance for safety and opens the view to any traffic approaching from the side entrances. If you're saying 'move away from potential danger, or position equidistant ...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

. . . 3 figure speeds what I am saying is there are some instances on some roads that are capable of it under the correct circumstances. Looking forward to seeing the Streetview links of them. I don’t need to count the centre lines distance all I do is read what they are telling me and drive accord...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

I did wonder about A338 Wantage - Hungerford e.g. (plucked almost at random, without a 'drive' through) https://goo.gl/maps/QJAWwGvj4K82 but even that location wouldn't seem to provide substantial additional view. I live not a zillion miles from Wantage and the loop A338 to Hungerford, A4 to Newbur...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

The A890 you could start from further back, I was trying to get the wide angle camera close enough to show the curve. Fair point, and without either going there or 'driving' through on Streetview and counting the lines it would be difficult to tell how the view varied. How could I comment on whethe...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

Thanks, Jon. To clarify, are they "100+" locations? The reason I ask is because they are both different. The A832 example I would happily use the full width, but from the view Google provides there is already a full view of the road width and surface, so no view is added from using an exte...
