    I have to look into my crystal ball for that one.

    Certainly it look like some body was not paying attention.

    Could it be that they both bike riders were looking for some attention at K.E.M.H.

    I wonder what we all can learn from that one.

    35 K plus 35 K = 70 k wow that is one big crash,with all the internal organs and brain get displaced.

    On another matter , I do not appreciate drivers deliberately tailgating/pushing me I guess they do not know that I am aware of every trick in the Rabbit book .

    The definition of a Rabbit .
    You become the Rabbit when a vehicle tailgates your vehicle with a view to PUSHING you to drive faster, their thought is for you to get caught first by the radar and take the fall while they drive in your shadow.

    Do to the increase volume of traffic, the day has long since past when drivers should take the chance to overtake other vehicles.

    Warning :- An overtaking driver will cut in on you to avoid a head on collision with another on coming vehicle.
    It is difficult ,if not impossible, to determine the speed of an on coming vehicle.

    During WW11 the word ” convoy” was often used to describe an armada of supply ships crossing the Atlantic at the same speed of the slowest ship with their destroyer escort to supply the war effort.

    We experience the same convoy effect here when commuters drive bumper to bumper on their way to and from the city.

    A convoy consists of three vehicles or more as additional vehicle join in .

    Here where lead drivers are required check their mirrors often and to remain in control and calm regardless of the surroundings especially in storm conditions.

    A vehicle convoy is controlled by the actions of the lead car who will often find them selves being harassed by the impatient driver in the following car, when ever you determine it is safe to do so, it is better make room and let that vehicle go ,do not wave them on.

    As I have often said before it is better to have the vehicle in front of you where you can see the that behind where you can not.

    I will also say, overtaking while driving in convoy irresponsible and dangerous which could lead to a long line of multiple crashes often as not with children on board.

    Convoy driving ,vehicles are being driven closer than the recommended safe distance ( the two second rule ) regardless of that fact, the lead driver has the responsibility to the rest of the convoy to control the speed and maintain vehicle flow and give proper signals as needed , and not ride the brakes .


    HINT :- If you wave another vehicle on……… you will be held responsible for their shortcomings.
    :- Drive your own vehicle .
