Before overtaking a large vehicle you should keep well back. Why is this?

A To get the best view of the road ahead
When following a large vehicle keep well back. If you’re too close you won’t be able to see the road ahead and the driver of the long vehicle might not be able to see you in their mirrors.
B To give acceleration space to overtake quickly on blind bends
C To leave a gap in case the vehicle stops and rolls back
D To offer other drivers a safe gap if they want to overtake you
