1.27.3. Tactics of driving of the car

Tactics of driving of the car is an ability to choose a correct mode of movement where the main indicator is speed. Incorrectly chosen high-speed mode appears the most frequent reason of road and transport incidents. Complexity of a correct choice of speed of movement consists that demands the simultaneous account of different factors or, in other words, a complex estimation of conditions in which there is a movement. Ability of the driver completely to cover all set of mobile and motionless objects, important from the point of view of traffic safety, and thus to exclude from the attention all objects not concerning movement which have got in the field of its sight (for example, the publicity boards removed from road of a building etc.) Are the main condition of correct tactics of driving of the car. With the same purpose it is not recommended to hang or крепить in zones of wind and back glasses and on the panel of devices amulets, souvenirs, etc., reducing the review of the driver and in addition distracting not only its attention, but also attention of other participants of movement. Thus it is necessary to remember that with increase in speed of movement the field of vision of the driver decreases. So, the field of vision is equal in rest 120 , at speed of 30 km/h – 100 , and at speed of 100 km/h – 40 ("tunnel sight").

In no event speed of movement cannot be defined by, whether you hasten or your passengers. It is necessary to acquire firmly it and even in the emergencies to choose speed only according to conditions. In this respect very important quality of the driver is the endurance, allowing to keep calmness and not to give in to someone's wishes to go faster, despite of concrete conditions.

After a long break in driving (the winter period, illness, business trip, etc.) some time for restoration of skills is required. In this connection execute some training departures on sites of roads with the minimum loading by transport.

Be the good psychologist and critically concern the errors at the wheel. Only self-criticism and introspection will help you to avoid repetition of similar errors further.

Overcoming of pools

At movement through pools it is necessary to be extremely attentive as they can hide holes and potholes on which it is possible to damage disks of wheels or a suspension bracket detail. In the event that you move on unfamiliar road, it is better to pass forward other transport, and how it will overcome a pool, it will be possible to judge a road condition. If such possibility is not present, leave the car and any subject (a stick, прутком etc.) measure a pool on a prospective trajectory of movement. Movement through a pool carry out on is minimum possible speed. Dashing overcoming of pools, as a rule, comes to an end with moisture hit on elements of system of ignition and an engine stop.

Movement in rainy weather

The moisture on elements of system of ignition can get and stop the engine at movement on road during a strong rain. And a well-tried remedy for prevention отсыревания elements of system of ignition their preliminary processing by water-repellent preparations in aerosol packing is good.

Special attention and care show first minutes after the rain beginning as the moistened dust on a road covering forms the soap film sharply reducing coupling of tyres with road.

Regularly during movement spend a lung притормаживание the car to dry brakes as efficiency of crude brakes sharply falls.

During overtaking include a windscreen screen wiper on the maximum mode is will help to avoid loss of visibility at the expense of possible emission of water from under a wheel of overtaken transport. Such safety measures are desirable for applying and in the event that overtake you.

Do not spend to rainy weather overtaking if the water cloud from under wheels ahead of the going car completely closes the review of a zone of overtaking.

Not to move in a water loop from ahead going cars, increase a distance and reduce speed of movement.

At movement along sidewalks during a rain or after it at journey through pools reduce speed that splashes from under wheels of your car did not get on pedestrians.

Movement in a night-time

With approach of twilight include a passing light of headlights. If your car is painted in dark tone, a passing light include a little earlier as against dark asphalt your car is imperceptible also its occurrence for drivers of counter transport becomes unexpected.

At driving at night the driver sees only the limited site of road and for safe movement special attention is required. It is noticed that with the years the big light exposure for subject recognition is required to the person. For people it is more senior 20 years doubles every 13 years. Hence, the driver at 60-year-old age sees at the night almost in 8 times worse, than in 20-year-old. According to it and speed of movement should decrease I will proportionally increase the driver at night.

In case of blinding by light of headlights of the counter car slow down movement or is better stop, without changing a lane, and include the emergency light alarm system. Be careful of a message the car blindly it it is very dangerous! Do not forget that for ability restoration see after blinding time to 10 seconds can to be demanded

If you follow ahead going car at night and are not going to overtake it, be switched to a passing light and keep from it on such distance not to disturb its driver light of the headlights.

Movement in the winter

Be very cautious on wet or slippery sites of roads – do not suppose sharp braking with risk to block wheels that will inevitably lead to drift. With that end in view operate the car smoothly, without sharp turns. Decrease in speed spend only gradual transition to hill-climbing gears with partial притормаживанием working brakes. If despite of everything the car starts to bring, turn a wheel towards drift, do not touch a coupling and brake pedal and keep calmness.

In crossing places it is expensive often arises наледь at the expense of proslipping of wheels at трогании from a place. Therefore at approach to such places on a dry site in advance begin decrease in speed.

In the winter happens difficultly to get under way from a place on a slippery site. For this purpose include the second or third transfer and, slowly releasing a coupling pedal, smoothly increase engine turns. If you need to execute turn after the car has begun movement, be switched to the first transfer and turn pass at engine work "in a tightness", without supposing proslipping of driving wheels.

In mountain district

At movement on lifting in due time pass to the lowest transfers, without supposing engine work "in a tightness" and дергания the car.

On long descents use the engine in a mode of braking with partial use of working brakes. Do not suppose descent with the switched off coupling and use only working brakes that will lead to a warming up of brakes and boiling of a brake liquid. Keep in mind that with increase in height the temperature of boiling of a brake liquid decreases. Boiling of a brake liquid in wheel cylinders means full refusal of working brakes – the brake pedal fails.

If in mountains you wish to stop on parking around viewing platforms or a rest zone after long lifting do not stop at once the engine in order to avoid boiling of a cooling liquid and fuel in the carburettor, and allow to work to the engine of 1-2 mines on the minimum turns of idling. It will facilitate the subsequent start of the engine.

As anywhere, in mountain district keep the right party of road. The smaller width of road and a difficult profile of a line demand большего attention and care. On turns submit sound and light signals. At a stop on lifting or on descent turn out a wheel against the stop that in case of a spontaneous start of motion of the car it has rested against a border of road or other obstacle.

On slippery road do not begin movement on a steep slope while ahead going car will not reach its top.
