WHEN GOING ON TOURS WITH A GROUP OR CLUB
Allow triple your speed in feet between cars for braking and other unexpected events.
If the car behind you slows down or flashes their lights, then flash your lights to slow the group ahead. The lead car should pull over at the next safe area.
You are responsible for the car in front and behind you.
Use your two way radio or cell phone if needed.
Last car in line should notify those ahead when traffic is backing up behind them so the group can safely pull over to let the moderns go by.
Any colour - so long as it's black.
