    Ha... overtaking at left side is illegal. Do you know? If the person is hogging the road at the right lane even though he or she is at the speed limit of 110km/h, what to do next? Just follow the car in front :confused:

    Can't see what's the problem here.

    If you are slower, move. Driving at the speed limit doesn't mean the right lane is suddenly your birth given right and you can hog it all you want. If the other guy wants to speed, let him. It's not your responsibility nor your right to stop him.

    And one more thing, just because someone is speeding doesn't mean she's/ he's driving recklessly. I've seen far more drivers swerving like a drunk, changing lanes without signal, etc, all at low speed rather than dangerous speeding drivers. Conclusion : it's attitude, not speed.

    Nowadays, not worried what my top speed is, as most of the time cannot achieve because traffic in heavy as most of the time congested or jam. Nowadays is how fast your ride can pick up (accelerate).....hahaahahhaha:rofl:

    If you cut left and overtake then turn right again can be consider left overtaking. Well, I was coming back from North and after Slim River is three lane highway. As middle lane have many traveling at 90 to 100 kmh and fast lane have many zooming pass, I stayed on the further left lanr doing 110kmh therefore overtaking the middle lane cars, considered overtaking on the left?.....hahahahahaa:driver:

    I fully agree with you bro but certain people still don't understand the concept of driving at the fast lane. I have many friends telling me that they do not need to give way even though they are driving at 110km/h at the fast lane & there is a car behind wanting to overtake. Another thing is driving fast doesn't mean reckless are you are not racing with anyone.

    This is tricky... I don't know ler.:rofl: But if you are driving in the states, then you are safe... try doing it again when you see a police car in front of you & try to do the same again.

    Hmm...I guess my sentences had missed some important points that I wanted to say and I sincerely apologize for that. Overtaking in the left lane - yes it is illegal. Why? Because of blind spot. The reason my previous post was I encountered a few times, I was driving at the speed limit in a quiet stretch. While I was cruising at the fast lane, after more than 2 minutes without any car in sight, a merc suddenly tailgated me and kept flashing his light. I dint know for how long it had been behind me, so I slowly steered to the left. To my surprise, he steered to the left to overtake me in a sudden. Luckily I looked at the rear view mirror and quickly steered back right.

    So what will happen if he just overtakes me without tailgating? Nth. I would just see him pass through. If there is danger of him colliding with me because he overtakes me from the left then part of the fault is mine coz I should have signaled, make sure I'm free to swerve, then execute it.

    If we think of it, yeah it is illegal to overtake from the left. But isn't it illegal to speed and tailgate too? There's no point to prove whose road it is, but to improvise everyday driving ethic to suit the most possible safest way to get from one place to another. I myself gave way to countless speeding cars on the highway. But whenever I drive in the fast lane, I keep to the speed limit. Sorry if I "hogged" some precious time of anyone involved. I myself when driving at 110kmh and encounter an aunty driving 80kmh in the fast lane, I'll follow cautiously and over take from the left, smoothly. Bcoz some drivers NEVER glance the rear view mirror. They are too focused to the front. But we can't really blame them, can we? Not everybody is Sebastian vettel and even some F1 drivers hogged the drive ways.

    The above is only my humble opinion. Again, I'm sure not everyone will agree. But whatever it is in the disagreer mind, or even those who agrees, please drive responsibly. No point taking this fuss much further as nobody is right in everyone's eye thus I won't reply any further also. Sticking back to the topic, knowing a car top speed merely help you getting away from it. And if one really wants to know, there is always google. Or call your nearest car dealer and get a Leng lui salesgirl to tell you.

    A car top speed that I know: Bugatti Veyron - 400kmh+

    Sigh... Dear all, for courtesy sake, just move on to the left when someone wants to pass. If he wants to speed, that's his prerogative.

    The problem with this is, he doesn't know whether or not you noticed he was at your rear and whether or not you're gonna give way. If you were to notice him earlier and give way, then no problem. But if he were to just overtake to the left, and suddenly you noticed and move on to the left as well, there's gonna be a collision. He didn't know what were you going to do and since you didn't budge for quite sometime, he assumed you're not gonna move and decided to overtake from the left.

    Those who are oblivious to their surroundings represent the biggest threat to other drivers. You need to be focused all around, that's what the side and rear mirrors are for! Just focusing at what's in front makes you a bad driver and to me, you are not fit to drive. Oblivious aunties, I'm looking at you.

    Not only aunty drivers. I noticed many P drivers are like that. Many did not even know my presence when they steer. I have had seen a driver sticking out his head to the front more than the rear view mirror is located.

    And for the overtaking, dats why I said in my post when no other car is around, just steer to the left before the getting near to the hogger, drive past him, then steer back to the right after some distance. Isn't that easier? Well for me at least, it is. I believe many have done this maneuver too, instead of flashing the hogger when you realize that he really doesn't know your existence. Some more road bullies and mental people are everywhere..might not wana provoke anyone. Btw all these are my opinions lar..everybody is free to act their part.

    Another car top speed to share - kancil 660 auto : 110kmh, maybe +2-3kmh more
