Cars have trouble driving that slowly Ross.

Had a Shadforth's ute be very patient on a ride this morning letting me track across a narrow bridge and then turning right a little further down the road. Even got a wave.

Sometimes I think the most dangerous part of my ride is my own street. No marked lanes, lots of parked cars, and not much traffic, but the traffic which is there often likes to get up to 50.

Anyway, this morning I heard a car coming up behind as I approached a parked truck. As is my habit, I kept left as long as was reasonable, but the car didn't overtake, even though most would. I gave a wave of appreciation. Then it again stayed behind me instead of attempting an overtake before the roundabout at the end of the street.

When I looked behind, I was quite surprised to see it was a tradie van. It read "Beach Glass", so I assume that means Beach Glass, Seaford. So well done to them!

I need to start posting some positive experiences .......

Had a Murray's bus slow down the other day to let me pass through a narrow pinch point. After passing through the pinch point the bus driver then overtook me and left heaps of space, I was well impressed, I even emailed Murray's to give them some positive feedback :P
