I'm actually inclined to believe you now...

He in essence agreed with SS. He phoned me and didn't reply to the WhatsApp so I could post the screenshot.

According to him, it's fine as long as it's safe to do so. As long as you don't go into the left lane blocking an approaching car which could cause an accident. Hi also says it depends on what road it is and what the markings on the road indicate. But I concede with what he's saying. And SS then being right. However, he says, the rule of thumb is to keep left and pass right. So slow driving cnuts in the right hand lane forcing people to pass on the left are putting peoples lives in danger and we should not be allowing people to hog the right-hand lane.

In an event of an accident there could be charges filed to the person who overtook on the left which would included dangerous and negligent driving among others. But if the pass was on the right, dangerous and negligent driving would probably not be added to the charge. Also said, depending on the officer. It's for the officer to judge is you passed on the left when it was safe to do so. If not he will fine you for passing on the left and or wreckless and negligent driving.

According to him, safe road practice is keep left and pass right. If you're slower than the flow of traffic move to the left.

Now that I can agree on.

Which goes back to my earlier point - just keep left, pass right and don't be a dick. It doesn't cost anything to be courteous to your fellow road user.

If someone is on the right because they need to turn then it's fine, just have some patience.

Guy behind her was a dick. Ended up wasting more of his time with his shenanigans, than he would have wasted by just being patient. What a dumbass. Wife probably spilled his klippies and coke in the process...

Ah metro cops, the beacons of integrity.

Stand up chaps with excellent knowledge of the law, going after the dangerous criminals and would never solicit bribes...

Within the context of that discussion it still means you will be in the right hand lane of the highway as you will exit on the right, something you don't see often.



Interesting, I learned something new today.

What you also need to know about the time "Flyaway Morris" had those roads built, the highway system in CT was designed by an American. Either no one told him that we drive on the LHS of the roads in SA or no one checked the designs before the roads were built. That is why there were/are still on ramps come in from the RHS and off-ramps off on the RHS of the highways down there.
The famous one is the one in the pic posted AFTER quite a few corrections were made to fix the mess, even though there is still one of these RHS on-ramps in the pic.

Well, if nothing else, this thread enticed some choice trolls to reveal themselves.
Anyone defending the actions of the guy in the bakkie is an attention seeking misfit.

No matter the rules of the road, who was in the wrong or right with regards to those rules - if the actions of that driver is accurate, then he needs to be taken to task. Pity about no dash cam.

SO, say sorry Geoff D and everyone else who quoted the law at you! Man up and admit that you know squat about what the law says!
I am still, unfortunately, awaiting replies on my queries. I will post them when and IF I get them.

You never know what happened ever. Unless it happens to you. What's your point? Are you suggesting not discussing something based on what information you have been given? Or are you suggesting always assuming the opposite of what someone says because, you know, there are 60 sides to a story? I think we all know we are speculating... that's the obvious bit. At least to some of us ;)

On a 4+ lane highway, which is the overtake lane and which is the 'I can go whatever speed I feel comfortable with' lane?

Some of the posters were speculating. The rest grabbed onto the OP like the ten commandments :whistling:

Bull- you don't accuse someone with a thing like that - not even in jest.
Yoh, did it hit a nerve? Most people would have brushed it off...
If you read what I wrote you will see there was never an accusation. It was speculation based on little or no evidence.
