How to overtake large vehicles safely. 30/07/13

Overtaking large vehicles requires a lot more care to be taken than with a standard sized car.

The extra length of trucks and lorries means that a lot more time will be required to pass the vehicle safely.

Tips for overtaking large or long vehicles.

  • Ensure that you keep well back from the vehicle you intend to overtake. This not only enables you to see further ahead, but it also allows the driver of the lorry to see you in their mirrors

  • Make sure you have plenty of time to overtake the vehicle safely. It will obviously take longer to do this, so if you have any doubts, don't risk it

  • Do not be tempted to follow another car who is overtaking a large vehicle. They may have allowed enough time for their manoeuvre, but there may not be enough time for yours

  • Always indicate well before you intend to overtake
