Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

Yes, fully agree. There's a piece of road I use most days: https://goo.gl/maps/krX4QRqDPsA2 Parking area on left delineated by paint. Even when empty, drivers seem determined (as the one ahead in the photo) to not use the good surface, instead they head out right over the decaying join and closer t...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

Another way of thinking about this, in my view makes it much simpler... (assuming that there are no prohibitive solid white lines...) imagine the road without any line markings down the centre - there are many such roads around here... now - where do you position for the optimal balance of safety / ...

I am so sorry - you might have just squeezed in - but it is over for this year, and not sure how flexible next year will be :D

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

unless this unseen hazard has a higher chance of being in one place or another. But it often does. Superelevation, the transition from road crown to and from superelevation and the change in the degree of superelevation across the width of the roadway all make it more likely for the road to be slip...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

I'm not so sure about 'slippery substances', but locally the road edges are in an appalling state, to the extent that Joe Public is often driving just left of or even over the centre white line on your average B or C road in order to avoid the potholes, subsidence, and surface "imperfections&q...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

added stability = added speed added stability = added contingency (e.g. in the event of a blowout) for me a lot of driving is about adding the ability for speed or contingency - if you can add both, then happy days - otherwise, it tends to be a choice between choosing speed or contingency... Exactl...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

But only using one at a time. If the hypothetical oil/ice patch is on only one side of the road, the chances of it being on the near side presumably equal those of it being on the off side (exempt conditions where one side experiences more weather than the other - and then you choose the obviously-...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

for me, offsiding has one of two purposes: - opening up vision - straightening the path opening up vision might be a way of just checking the extra bits on a bend through which I can see, or it might be to gain earlier vision around the bend, either way, I would come back in early enough that the sp...
