The unwritten rule reveals how motorists can help trucks overtake on a highway by using a simple four-step process and clear communication

According to the government's National Heavy Vehicle regulator, road trains can be up to 53.5 metres long, meaning overtaking one can be intimidating. 

Four-step process for overtaking trucks

1. Communicate to the truck driver you will help them overtake by flashing your right indicator

2. Decelerate as the truck overtakes by removing your foot from the pedal for a few seconds

3. Once the truck's back trailer has cleared your bonnet flash your high beams to indicate it is safe

4.  The truck driver can then move back into the left lane safely
