Subsequently, one may also ask, when should you not pass another vehicle?
Passing is illegal and unsafe when yourline-of-sight is restricted or limited by a curve, hill, or weatherconditions, cross-traffic is present, when there is a solid yellowline on your side of the roadway, or a school bus is loading orunloading children. You must constantly be aware ofpassing vehicles.
Similarly, should you always drive slower than other traffic answer? No, you can block traffic when youdrive too slowly. Yes, it is a good defensive drivingtechnique. Yes, it is always safer than drivingfaster than other traffic.
Also, when should you yield your legal right of way?
This is the rule that controls most intersections whendrivers arrive at an intersection simultaneously. For instance,you come upon a stop sign at the same time as anotherdriver in a cross street and he is on your right.You yield (give up) the right of way to thatdriver by letting him go first.
Why do trucks stop at railroad crossings?
Buses stop at train tracks because they are highcapacity vehicles. If the bus is fully loaded and for somereason gets stuck on the tracks, not everyone may haveenough time to exit the bus in time before the traincollides with the bus. Right before the stop intersectionwas a set of railroad tracks.
