What if you see a car driving down the middle of the road and they aren't some distance away?Northern_Mike wrote: I'm suggesting that if you see a car coming down the centre of the road some distance away you slow down, and possibly stop well in advance so they spot you and you don't have to take avoiding action. I do it daily round here on the lanes where it's just possible to get two cars past and everyone drives down the middle of the road.
What if they pulled out from a side road not far in front of you and unnecessarily hugged the center line so they would collide with you so soon the only option you have is to swerve and hit the kerb? Does that still mean you didn't see them or judge their positioning as they drove in a manner to barge people out of the way?
Perhaps Mike in all your years of driving you've been lucky enough to never meet oncoming traffic with drivers of such mentality?
