Pete, I stay in primary for three reasons here. Firstly, there is a junction on the left so I want to to remain visible here. Also I am travelling at a reasonable speed on the approach to a roundabout at which I always catch them up at anyway. Also if I pull in I have to try and negotiate back out, and the traffic flow here can be fairly heavy, so it wouldn't be easy.Pete said:I certainly think you were right to be in primary for the first 30seconds of the video, especially alongside the parked cars and the roadworks. But, at the point where the first car overtook, I'd have slipped over to secondary position: there was a longish gap with no parked cars on the left, and - also important, there was a gap in oncoming traffic. Please understand me, I'm not condoning that sort of driving, he passed too close, it put you in danger, he was in the wrong: check. Just that I tend not to play the hero, and he may have had a point about your remaining in primary needlessly. I have a stretch on my commute where I stay in primary, alongside parked cars. As soon as I reach the yellow-lined bit, with no parked cars, I go to secondary. And I get grateful gestures from following drivers thereby!
