New POI - Passing Lanes - Any interest

 

On a recent trip, when I found myself behind motorhomes and other slow vehicles on 2-lane mountain roads, it occurred to me that we should have a POI file that shows the location of Passing Lanes.

Any interest in creating one?

Good idea

Creating directional POIs are a challenge however. I don't want an eastbound alert if I am westbound.

Behind a tractor

Would have liked to know how long I would have to follow the tractor the other day.

Besides, there are normally signs that tell you when they begin and end as well as the center line indicating as much.

I might have a passing interest in such a POI file.

Slow Lane POI

How about Slow Lane POI's to indicated to slow pokes where their lanes are.

Driving in Mexico has those occurrences on a lot of highways. Dual trailer tractors barely making headway uphill and if you stood by the side of the road you could count the lug-nuts on the wheel! But there is a simple solution when driving in Mexico. YOU try to assess whether you could safely pass and you go, double lines, yellow double lines or not!

Also Mexican truckers will put on their left turn signal to let you know its safe to pass, BUT you must still use your noodle!!!!!
