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.

  • 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.
