Dyers Pass Safety Improvements

I have ridden up Dyers Pass a few times now that the speed limit has been lowered and the double yellow lines painted from Sign of the Takahe up to the Kiwi. My impression is that most cars slow down a LOT more before overtaking¬† and are much more willing to wait for a straight section of road before overtaking me which feels a lot safer. Previously cars would be more likely to overtake on blind corners and/or at higher speeds which I found very stressful. I have had one dangerous overtaking move in several trips so its not perfect, but that’s a lot better than the usual rate of dangerous driving. I am interested to know if others have experienced a similar improvement in car overtaking behaviour there.
