Everybody … in your opinion, what is the minimum overtake speed to be allowed in passing some one on a 70 MPH speed limit highway?
Should you be allowed to pass without kicking your cruise control out ----
If you can’t accelerate to 10 MPH faster than the vehicle you are attempting to pass you should just have to stay behind it?
What should be the minimum time allowed to pass a semi?
At what point is it okay to have the highway patrol pull you over for passing to slowly?
Is it your responsibility to judge the speed of overtaking vehicles behind you to ensure that you can complete your pass before they get to within 10 car lengths?
If their are 3 trucks on a row climbing a hill at 45 MPH and you are doing 70 should be required to slow down and pull in between them so the 100 MPH BMW which as come up behind you will not be impeded in is progress?
How far should the next vehicle be from the preceding one to make it okay to NOT pull into the right line after each vehicle passed? Time or distance?
Everybody has all these feeling about what is right. So, put some hard numbers to it. At what point are you going to graciously accept your $300 ticket for breaking the rules of the road? Give us some absolute numbers you are willing to live with and lose your license over. None of this “I know it when I see it “ stuff.
Assume the highway patrol can see exactly what is going on and the time and speeds.
What do you actually want that applies to EVERYBODY and all LEGAL vehicles using the roads at the same time.
Lets only use the road I have described and leave all other roads and streets out of it , just the 70 MPH, 2 lane each way divided by wide medium, outside of city limits, freeway, in the lower 48 of the USA.
