How to drive past gritters - DAD LESSONS FOR MY KIDS

- How to drive past gritters -

I hate driving past gritting lorries on motorways.

Here is a video of how it usually goes:



They travel so slowly, so hanging back doesn't seem like an option.

But I never deciding if overtaking quickly is better... to get the damage to my bodywork and windscreen over as soon as possible...

...or if I should drive slower to reduce the velocity of the chunks hitting my car... but then the car gets hit by it for longer.

Either way feels wrong.

  1. I try and blat past as quickly as possible. Of course, much of the modern salt that's spread is covered with molasses, so will probably bounce off *citation needed. /@syzygy

  2. is that real? seriously? I love this!
    Much less intimidating to be hit by sugar rather than salt. Feels like a choice we usually make in the cinema...
