Topic: Rules for Yielding to Other 4wd Traffic
Previous TopicNext TopicHelp
When you meet an oncoming off-roader on level ground, each of you should look for a wide place in the road to pull over. Many times you can pull off the road altogether just as long as you do not damage plants and small trees.

Look for other 4wd roads that would allow you to pull in so that oncoming traffic might pass (from the direction of the red arrows on the main road in bottom photograph).

Take the opportunity to chat with the driver of the vehicle you are passing if you are in the back country and are unfamiliar with the road you are traveling. The oncoming vehicle is coming from the direction you are going. Ask the driver how the road is ahead and whether it is suitable for your SUV. Ask about how steep the road becomes and how overgrown with brush it becomes.

Finally, look at the sides of the other vehicle to see if there are lots of scratches in the dust or in the paint itself. This would be a good indication that the road is going to get narrow and brushy, a situation that will ruin the paint job on your SUV.
