During the early phases of the epidemic, roads were less congested, resulting in greater speeding and unsafe driving. With the return to school, work, and a more typical routine, it's time to reverse this trend and revert to our old routines. Spend a few minutes reviewing your road safety knowledge.
Consider the following questions:
How long is the minimum safe distance between 2 vehicles?
You must provide adequate room to react, brake, and stop safely when following another vehicle. At least three seconds behind the vehicle in front of you is a safe following distance. It would be best if you also increased this distance in severe weather.
When driving, fatigue is as dangerous as what?
Physical and mental function suffers dramatically after 17 hours of awake time. The consequences are the same as if your blood alcohol level was 0.05 mg/100 ml, which is the legal limit at which a driver's license is suspended in most cases.
What is the tread depth of your tires?
They should be replaced when the tread depth reaches 1.6 mm (2/32"). A mechanic can check the wear depth of your tires for you.
What can driving aggressively cost you more of?
Driving more fuel-efficiently can save you up to 25% on gasoline while enhancing road safety and lowering consumption. Aggressive driving, which includes speeding, can increase fuel consumption and put your safety at risk.
Smooth acceleration and maintaining a constant speed are two fuel-saving driving techniques. It can also help to increase road safety by preventing collisions.
Are headlights enough to use when driving at night?
Headlights can't compensate for the loss of natural light, affecting our night vision and perception of movement and potential obstacles. When driving at night, you have to look beyond the beam of your headlights.
Automatic driving for cars is on the horizon, and it will revolutionize the way we move as a society. While some people may find it difficult to embrace technology and realize its benefits, it is also critical to understand the fundamentals of manual driving and how to drive on different routes.
