The flying overtake is preferable since your high initial speed means that a shorter distance is needed to successfully overtake. Furthermore, it is more environmentally friendly than “flooring it”, as is required with an accelerative overtake. Accelerative overtakes also increase the risk of crashing into the car in front, as the distance maintained is usually far too short just before overtaking (Driving Licence Book, 19th Edition, page 85 & Du och jag i trafiken [You and me in traffic], 28th Edition, pages 248–250).
