Is it acceptable to increase the speed of your vehicle over the legal speed limit to pass or overtake another vehicle?
In practice, It is acceptable to increase the speed of your vehicle over the legal speed limit to pass or overtake another vehicle. Legally, it is not permitted. If the other vehicle is already at the speed limit, you should not be passing it. If it were a police car you were passing, at any speed above the speed limit, they could stop you.
The gearbox enables the engine to work in its most efficient rev range while the vehicle is moving off from stationary through to its top speed. Moving off from rest you need a low gear so that the engine can rev freely while starting to get the weight of the vehicle moving from zero speed, through to a high gear when the vehicle has momentum and less effort is required to keep it moving.
