when you come up to an LHD lorry on the M-way that you plan to overtake, when you are in its field of vision, give it six or seven flashes of your headlights to attract the driver's attention, with your right indicator on. Then pass it with your lights on.
By making the driver aware of your presence (lights flashing) and intention (indicator flashing) you might just prevent yourself getting mushed up.
I can't say whether it works; but I told my mum to do this and she spent ten years plying the M4 without incident, and I've yet to be toasted when passing an LHD lorry. If you think six or seven flashes is excessive, just remember that 166 and ask yourself what your life is worth in flash counts... ;-)
A driver is always faithful to a car that's always faithful to its driver.
Sometimes in the darkest hour, love comes shining through.
Then it doesn't seem so far from me to you.
