In view of the fairly poor rear view visibility on the Guilietta has anyone experienced problems when driving on the Continent while overtaking or driving off from rest using mirrors and /or rear window observation?
I do not see the issue as I used to drive a Lefthanddrive Lancia in this country for years . Now we always take the Multipla for driving to Italy as a hatchback car is a pain for long distance journeys.
You just need to hang back a bit more so you get a view of any oncoming traffic. On RH curves tuck in and look down the inside of the vehicle in front. That way you will know the road is clear sooner than someone in a LHD. Righthanders are more of a problem but ith less traffic on the roads I find that drivers of slower lorries etc are much more helpful and will give you an indication the road is clear.
Also watch your rear view & LH wing mirror for anything fast coming up behind, particularly on dual carriageways.
