Re: Rule of Thirds - Overtaking

Yes as I mentioned in first post.

It is related to progressive driving. Dividing the road ahead between bends into thirds.

It is another HPC John Lyon era technique.

Re: Driving More Renaults

I will not say that the guys (truckers) have it easy else it will start a war of blue badge holders.

The modern trucks are very expensive and very posh.

I could not brake and change overlap so hard work.
