If I had a nickel for every time…

One of the most common and most avoidable incidents occurs when a slower car takes the typical racing line in front of a faster car trying to pass on the inside.

To the driver trying to pass I want to say: “What the hell were you thinking? With your speed, you can pass anywhere. If you can’t put yourself in a position to pass before the corner, it’s not your corner. This is 100% your fault”.

To the driver in front I want to say: “How could you not see this coming? You have mirrors, right? Use them. It’s dangerous out there. Drive like you understand that. This was 100% avoidable.”

Disclaimer: I may have said these things to myself at one time or another…

  1. It’s the overtaking drivers’ responsibility to make a safe pass 100% of the time. Yeah we want to ask the slower guy why he wasn’t checking his mirrors, but in the video above if you’re gonna dive bomb someone like that and they turn into you, there is only one person to blame.
