I know there are lots of filtering threads, but none of them talked about techniques relating to filter. Remember this is not a discussion of the legal/ethical issues of filtering, but about safe techniques GIVEN THAT I AM GOING TO FILTER. is it safe? how would i do it? Option 1 (safest IMO): filter to the front then try and move in front of the front car. This works best if there is a pedestrian crossing, because then there will be plenty of room. However you will be taking up space in the pedestrian crossing Option 2: filter to the front, stay next to the front car then try and take off. Potentially dangerous if the front car accelerates hard too Option 3 (most dangerous IMO): Turn from another outer lane, even if that lane isnt supposed to turn, and rely on speed What do you guys think?
