INFORMATION ON TRAVELLING IN CONVOY

  1. First and foremost, always obey the rules of the road.
  2. Participants will also obey the trip leader's instructions, if any, during club activities.
  3. The trip leader usually travels at the front of the convoy, and nominates the vehicle to travel last. Others can fall in any order.
  4. On main roads, vehicles in convoy should travel no less than eight car lengths apart, to assist overtaking traffic.
  5. Off-road, avoid travelling too close together where there may be unexpected braking or gear changing. In especially steep areas, wait until the preceding vehicle is clear before ascending or descending.
  6. Do not deviate from the track chosen by the trip leader, except in exceptional circumstances.
  7. Try to keep up with the car in front of you, but don't drive beyond your or your vehicle’s capability.
  8. In convoy, you are responsible for not losing the car behind. At intersections or forks, do not proceed until the car behind sights and indicates that he/she has identified the correct direction. Each successive vehicle will then wait for the following vehicle before moving off. This way everyone will be able to remain in convoy, whether CBs are fitted or not.
  9. If you come to an intersection or branch in the road, and there is no one there to indicate direction, DO NOT PROCEED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. Pull off the road, and wait for a vehicle to return. If you have a CB, signal that you are stopped and await directions. Radios are not a substitute for good convoy procedure. Wait until a car comes back for you.
  10. Do not overtake other cars moving in convoy.
  11. All gates are to be left as they are found -either open or shut. The second car is responsible for opening and closing the gate, and will fall back into convoy second from the rear.
  12. Drivers leaving the convoy or group, must inform the trip leader, and if possible give details of their intentions.
