- Dec 1, 2009Yes, you're in a very vulnerable position after cresting a hill, because you've just become invisible to following cars. Some recommend crossing over to the left lane for a while after cresting a hill, to stay out of that particular "kill zone."- AndyOn Tue, Dec 1, 2009 at 7:18 AM, Tone <tone@...> wrote:

the hill. I was unloaded at the time, so I did not have any long cargo
for them to hit, but if I had been on a tri-cycle recumbent like the
CargoMonster with its wider wheel base and lower visibility threshold, I
would hate to think what might have happened.
