    Passing a Road Train in the Pilbara

    Thought I would post up a 30 sec video of the mighty Deefer getting past a road train ( camper in tow)

    I would be a little hesitant posting evidence of myself passing on double white lines

    Did I say I was driving?? - It may not live long on the web anyway. Unfortunately Youtube is full of incriminating video's- I just watched one of some backpackers lounging around in the back of a troopy doing 100k- no seats etc.
    It would be good if the police could chase up those idiots on Dashcam Owners Australia though.

    Iím assuming the driver could see the road ahead is clear by looking to the left of the road train around the corner, not ideal but when you come across a number of road trains you learn to look forward and when the truckie is in the mood can be very helpful.
