also, in portugal atleast, when passing on a highway in the left lane you need to have your left signal on while your in that lane while your passing.
I mentioned high beams because people Europe use them interchangeably.

And just because you see people using it (like you have in Portugal) doesn't mean it's ALLOWED like you think. I'm going to bet it's illegal just like it is in other countries in Europe.

You will get an improper use of lights ticket... It's in the HTA somewhere. You can take my word for it or look it up on your own.

The best ones are when driving 120-130km/h left lane, and driver from mid lane gets into the left and remains the same speed as he was 90-100km/h.

And yes you can get a ticket for using your highbeams improperly. Now i think it applies to driving steady with high beams.

I do that too, the way I see it, a quick flash or 2 to get the slow driver to move over is safer than attempting to pass on the right. But most people don't seem to understand what getting flashed means.

And I really wish there was a cop around when I was stuck behind some idiotic woman driving with her highbeams on constantly on a country highway. I couldn't pass because there was a constant stream of cars on the oncoming lane, and those people all flashed her, but ended up blinding me too. She just couldn't get it into her thick head to look at her damn gauges and see that her highbeam indicator was on. When I could finally pass her I got as far away from her as possible, and I could still see the highbeams in my rearview until she turned somewhere.

...thats a lie. unless uve only had ur license for a month and are really lucky..its doesnt happen.



but anyhow, only thing that ticks me off is im going a little quicker and someone cuts infront and i have to move my foot to the brakes just incase. But otherwise, if someone is going 80 or 90, which i see in a blue moon. i have no problem finding a way around them, i turn it into a kind of video game

To add to this,. TRUCKS ARE THE WORST MIDDLE LANE BLOCKTARDS. They make it impossible to merge off the hwy as you get a retard corolla doing 90 in front of you in the passing lane, truck doing 91 in the middle lane and you are stuck trying to make a collector exit and can't pass, you have to brake moronically.

next time brake test the bitch, she will try to high beam you and switch them off by accident.

The middle lane is a big problem, everyone here forgets to realize the middle lane is a passing lane for trucks.

I find people in rural roads more curtious then those in urban areas.

Right and you actually sat behind a wheel of a truck and understand what goes on.

Truck drivers are most courtious motorists on the road, period.

No matter what happens with a 4 wheeler it's always a truckers fault, well according to the public anyways. Truck drivers are courtious because they don't want to be involved in a accident. Especially since some States in the USA have a law that if you are involved in a motor vehicle accident and found at fault you loose your truck driving licence for 6 years.

Having said that, there are those drivers who push the law to the limit.
