Drivers foreign to Crete tend to find the overtaking methods of the Greeks a little confusing. Highway roads are often quite narrow and in order to pass someone, cars need to drive into the opposite lane. Drivers are expected to move over into the hard shoulder so that others can get around them. Greek drivers expect you to do this so make sure that you are aware when people are trying to pass by. Just be careful because sometimes cars are parked in the shoulders. Also be aware that the solid white lines are typically ignored and people will try to pass you even when they are driving right over them.
