You’re driving at the legal speed limit. A vehicle comes up quickly behind you, flashing its headlights. What should you do?

Accelerate to make a gap behind you

Touch the brakes sharply to show your brake lights

Maintain your speed to prevent the vehicle from overtaking

Allow the vehicle to overtake

Don’t enforce the speed limit by blocking another vehicle’s progress. This will only lead to the other driver becoming more frustrated. Allow the other vehicle to pass when you can do so safely.
