The note posted on Reddit read: “I drive slowly. Please overtake.”

But the message, placed in the red Mazda’s rear window, drew mixed reactions on social media.

The passing motorist who snapped the shot said he “appreciated the heads” – while others were unimpressed.

Some outraged that there was “no place” for motorists driving well below the speed limit on public roads.

“Driving well below the speed limit is dangerous – as is exceeding the speed limit,” said one.

“No one should go so far below the limit that they need a sign like this on the back of their car.”

Another criticized slow drivers as “more annoying than speeders”.

They said: “The recommended speed limit is just that.

“It’s not good for traffic flow to drive 20 km slower than recommended.”

A third commented: “It’s good to be aware but if you need a sign like this then you shouldn’t be driving on the road.”

Another said the driver “put himself and other road users at risk”.

But others disagreed, arguing there might be a valid reason for the note – with some suggesting the driver was “just sick of being tailgated”.

One said: “I like how everyone assumes this person is a complete snail and not someone who’s tired of being shut down for perfectly reasonable speeds.”

Another wrote: “We’re all just assuming the driver is well under the speed limit.

“Maybe the driver is just fed up with being driven over by bogans.”

A third commented: “I’ve never known how to get upset about slow drivers. There are two lanes for a reason.

“I just overtake and go about my day. People are so sensitive.”

A fourth said there could be “a good reason” for the note.

“The note is amazing, no question about it,” they said.

“But we have no idea what happens to the driver or the passengers in the car.”

Some Reddit users suggested the note should read, “If driving is slow, please overtake.”

In Australia, drivers can overtake on a multi-lane road when the other vehicle is in a marked lane on the left and when a vehicle is stationary or turning right.

It is never legal to exceed the speed limit to overtake another vehicle.

Meanwhile, in the UK, according to the Highway Code, drivers shouldn’t stand in long queues – especially if they’re driving a slow-moving vehicle.

Drivers are also only allowed to overtake when it is safe and legal to do so.

You must ensure that the road is clear, that other traffic is not passing you and that there is a reasonable gap in front of the other driver.

Motorists are not allowed to overtake if doing so would cause them to cross a double white line or if they are approaching a pedestrian or children’s crossing.

According to the StVO, overtaken drivers should also slow down if necessary in order to let the vehicle pass.

“Never hinder drivers who want to overtake,” says the code.
