‘It is wrong to keep a safe distance from reversing vehicles’

Driving backwards on highways in Vietnam is a serious problem as this can cause catastrophic accidents.

My attorney’s lawsuit “Vehicles behind must be avoided, including cars in front and backward” is incorrect. I would like to cite the following three cases to prove this is not true and its supporters are completely wrong.

First, turn left when the light is green. Some traffic lights do not allow left turns without a left turn arrow. Meanwhile, some traffic light stations allow left turns, but provided that the driver of the left-turning vehicle (car, motorbike, and bicycle) must make sure the oncoming vehicle is far enough away and when turning is not made an accident. If, when turning left, the vehicle in the opposite lane (or the opposite direction) is too close and results in an accident, the vehicle operator turns the wrong way completely. There is no need to argue.

Second, dotted lines on roads with only two lanes and running in the opposite direction allow vehicles to overtake lanes. However, the operator of a vehicle “encroaching” must ensure that there are no vehicles running in the opposite direction when “encroaching”.

Also see that there are vehicles going in the opposite direction but still “encroach on” by believing as the attorney’s interpretation can both lose life and completely error when going to court. There is no need to argue.

The driver of the oncoming vehicle has no responsibility to “give way” or “keep a safe distance” in the event of “encroaching” on these roads.

Third, suppose there are three lanes on a highway. A mid laner is suddenly changed lanes by the left-hand lane operator (the innermost lane) or the right-hand laner (the outermost lane), without his signal lights on, and within close distance.

Obviously, the driver of the lane-changing vehicle made the mistake, not the one running in the middle lane. There is no need to argue.
