Experiences for crossing cars when backpacking

  • Only cross when there are not to many cars, and you consider the situation safe
  • Keep a safe distance of about 10 km from cars, or trucks
  • Only cross on the left side (except when the way is devided into 2 different lanes for motorbikes and cars)
  • Turn on left indicators, and press hooter continuously
  • Move into the area of rear light of cars
  • Keep patient, and wait until cars show the signal that they let you cross
  • Try to accelerate to cross as quick as possible
  • 2 motorbikes can not simultaneously cross cars
  • Remember to watch out for opposite vehicles

Something you should avoid when crossing a car, or a truck:

  • Don’t cross when you are driving on a bridge, or under a tunnel without specific lane
  • Don’t cross when you are going uphill, or downhill ( there is a traffic sign of over -10o slope)
  • Don’t cross at a turning point, regardless of seamless line or not
  • Don’t cross when a car is driving opposite you
  • Don’t cross at 3-way crossroad, or 4-way crossroad
  • Don’t cross when the front vehicle is crossing

Besides, we consume that when you cross another, the speed and distance between 2 vehicles need to be identified clearly. When you want to cross, you have to turn on indicators for the front let you cross. When you cross successfully, remember to back to the lane. The ideal distance is the distance that let you see the behind ones through rear mirror.
