Driving on Single Track Roads. Single-track roads. These are only wide enough for one vehicle. They may have special passing places. If you see a vehicle coming towards you, or the driver behind wants to overtake, pull into a passing place on your left, or wait opposite a passing place on your right. Give way to vehicles coming uphill whenever you can. If necessary, reverse until you reach a passing place to let the other vehicle pass. Slow down when passing pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders.
Do not park in passing places.
Driving on Mulls single track roads can be very different to driving in a city. you have to be aware of deer and sheep and some time a cow or two walking in to the road. Most of all you have to be aware of cars coming towards you and catching up with you from behind so please keep checking you mirrors. In a city or on a normal road you don’t have to pay much attention to the car behind as they take care of there self and pass you when it is safe to do so, but when driving on a single track road they can only pass you when you pull in to a passing place and let them go .On mull we have retained fire fighters who when called out have to drive in their own cars to the fire station as fast as they can but if they catch up with a person driving slow that will not let them pass means they don’t make the fire station and this could result in a death. Or it could be a doctor trying to get to a call out. So please be a thought full driver when driving on a Single track road and let the person from behind past you as soon as you can, some one life might be in your hands. Enjoy your holiday and the views and let the faster car go by Thank you for taking the time to read my Safety while driving on single track roads.www.hartofmull.co.uk
