I believe this is on the edge of getting fined in the Netherlands for such slow overtaking. This guy only wins like a minute of driving time on 300 kilometers of motorway.

Overtaking prohibited for trucks.

It's increasing here, I think. Domestic (Slovenian) drivers probably think 'why would I have to drive behind foreigners?', and overtake all the time. It's not just annoying, but also dangerous.

In the Netherlands control is sometimes quite strict on overtaking trucks. And necessary, regarding the video. This obviously doesn't only happen in Poland

If you'd completely forbid it people would complain about the 'wall of trucks'... I have to say I also overtake by truck when reasonably possible (with at least 2-3km/h speed difference).

People get aggresive and start driving more aggresive when they're impatient.

Most truck drivers move to the left line even if ther's car coming on it.

You mean like the the bumpersticking at the video on top of this page? It won't help the truck driver faster than he does...

Yeah, for instance. If something happens, the cars behind it can pile up

That's very common here for cars as well (idiots going with 90-100km/h to the left lane..). With one difference: they actually are able to drive faster, while trucks are limited.

I've rarely seen a truck going to the left lane, while oncoming cars have to brake very hard (of course they need to get off the gas, but still).

Yes, but if you hit a truck from behind, you'll be much more smashed. Trucks here just start overtaking, even when there's a car coming. A few days ago a truck started overtaking while I was overtaking at the same time, and I'd probably be squeezed, if I didn't hit full gas to run away.

There's no doubt someone should be able to anticipate normally when any kind of vehicle is going to switch lanes. But that's not truck specific.

I only wanted to make some nuances in overtaking trucks on relatively quiet motorways (or with at least 3 lanes in each direction). Since not every truck is limited the same way, you just can't get prevent the whole thing...

With 3 lanes per direction it's still ok, because traffic is able to overtake on the third lane. With 2 lanes per direction the road gets 'blocked', so to say.

I just did a small tour of 320 kilometers in Northeastern Netherlands and Germany, driving some Autobahn. I've never seen a German Autobahn so deserted.

A little, about 140 km/h, the pavement of the A31 autobahn is not that good. Besides that, that's about the maximum speed my car still drives normal. It has a top speed of 160 km/h but it doesn't drive very well then (shaky).

A Kangoo isn't a real racecar. I'd love to drive a Mustang on the BAB 20 once
