Here's another 'etiquette' rule of thumb I noticed on the Crossover Road thread.... when you come face to face on a narrow grade with another vehicle, who backs up? I've always heard the downhill traffic has the right-of-way as a rule, the uphill headed vehicle must back up... depending on who's hauling what. Convenience and COMMON COURTESY rules the roost to me.


Wow, I was always told uphill traffic has the right of way due to clutching a load going uphill after stopping don't always turn out right. The truck headed uphill not having to stop is the goal of the situation.

Hmmm, interesting. To me the common sense is, it's easier to back up downhill than uphill, especially with a load on. However, again the common sense applies to who has the easier ability to back up due to load and convenience of terrain. Interesting debatable situations, que no?
