Today, I drove to work (I don't like leaving the car on the drive for more than about three weeks at a time) and coming home, got behind a queue of traffic which was behind a tractor and trailer doing about 25-30 mph. As I got to the last half mile of the main road before I turn into my village the tractor moves left and the traffic steadily overtakes. By the time I got behind it I was at this point on the road. I decided that as I was only about 300 meters or so from the left hand bend just before the roundabout I refrained from overtaking at this point (I would still have had to partially go into the opposing lane to overtake) as I thought it would be cutting it a bit fine for little time gain. This seemed to really annoy the driver behind who flashed his lights and beeped at me. Normally I take an 'if in doubt don't' attitude on the road, but do you think I was too passive here, and would you have overtaken at this point?
