It's not really a problem, once you're able to physically reverse an artic, but generally people see the size of the vehicle and think "ooh, that must be difficult to reverse" and give you right of way. Except for the occasional muppet who sees it as some kind of challenge.zimzum42 said:but RT, it must be such fun to reverse an artic down a hill!
Probably a historical thing. Not all early cars had handbrakes (from what I recall) which would make hill starts difficult. Hence right of way going up. Equally I could be talking rubbish.bonj said:If the bit at your left where cars were parked is part of the road then you should have given way, as the presence of parked cars takes precedence over hills. If it's off the road, then he should have given way as you were going up the hill.
Although I'm not really even sure why they have that rule, as it's harder to reverse up a hill than it is to go forward up a hill.
