Driving Around Curves At High Speeds – Car Positioning
June 21, 2017 at 10:39 AM
To be able to take a curve safely while travelling at high speed, you’ll need to position your car correctly – both during the approach and while moving through the curve.
Here are some tips for positioning your car properly when driving around a curve at high speeds:
- Reposition your vehicle before the curve to get a straighter course through the curve and a better view. Your car should be positioned more to the right for left-hand curves and more to the left for right-hand curves.
- Maintain a safe distance from any roadside hazards and oncoming traffic.
- Ensure you do not cross the centreline (keep your vehicle on the left side of the line) as this is not only illegal but dangerous as well.
