Collected here are 18 top tips to motorists from collections Thrillist and CTV News that will make your driving enjoyable and safe.

  • When you stand on the highway before turning left and miss the oncoming cars, the temptation to pre-rotate the steering wheel to the left. Don’t do this, otherwise accidental blow to the back can push you under the wheels of the truck. Keep the wheel straight.
  • If you accidentally climbed onto the curb or snow Bank, do NOT pull the steering wheel in the opposite direction! Firmly squeeze it, without changing the position of the foot on the gas pedal, and gently compensate for the drift in direction.
  • Be especially careful when passing long turns the internal route. If an oncoming car passing on the outer radius, start log, then 9 times out of 10 he did not go into the ditch, and right on you. In such a situation, the best solution is ditch.
  • Always accelerate, reconstructed in other number.
  • Do not ride in neutral zone. You lose the ability to accelerate and brake is not always acceptable way.
  • Never brake in the turn. Remember: in the turn – only controlled acceleration!
  • Always leave yourself a backup plan. For example, if you are not sure about the possibility of overtaking, move into the oncoming lane and drag back until you sure to overtake you. Otherwise, go back to your lane.
  • Implementing chess overtaking on the track and wedging in the flow, reduce the speed even in the oncoming lane. If you start braking later, a high risk that you will pull in traffic.
  • If you see that the oncoming car does not have time to get ahead, turn right turn signal in advance and move to the sidelines. Don’t need flashing lights – driving can be an inexperienced driver.
  • If the machine blows or skid, do not panic. Learn what to do in such situations, and act strictly according to plan. A desperate situation only one skid on the descent on the front drive, in all other cases, it is always possible to rectify the situation.
  • Find more flat area and test your car in extreme braking and acceleration. Find the border, learn the machine – that knowledge can be also in a difficult moment!
  • Don’t count on the system of exchange rate stabilization in the rain. It has no effect on hydroplaning.
  • Turn off protivosokowoe device (if it is not on one button with the system of exchange rate stabilization). The monodrive from him, only harm! Especially when it is necessary to slip the intersection of with the sharp start.
  • Keep in mind that when you’re speeding in the left lane and oncoming traffic, causing cars have a tendency to emerge at careless pedestrians.
  • Same thing – if we are rushing on the left row and right all standing or barely moving. Most likely, they miss the pedestrian.
  • If you see on the side of a man with kids or some children brake. Always. Under any circumstances. Young children are not able to keep the balance, don’t feel in danger and don’t know the rules of the road.
  • If on the road there was an unexpected hindrance, especially in the form of small animals, try to assess the situation before you twist the steering wheel to the side. Otherwise you risk to break a pole, rescuing a stray dog.
  • 99% of all accidents occur quickly. How much do you remember of the accident, which it would be impossible to say: “we Drove a little slower – it would have been fine”? Think about it!
  • Happy journey!
