It's been many years since I vacationed there by car, but some two-lane
roads on the mountains, where curves ruled out passing for long ways,
had turn-outs -- a widened shoulder or similar, often unpaved -- where
the terrain permitted. It was incumbent on a motorist being closely
followed to use them to permit following cars to pass. It was a polite
and utterly civil custom that, I suspect, either grew from or engendered
the friendly attitudes I saw not only to tourists, but to neighbors.
