The following long-distance car driving experiences will be essential, especially for “newbies” or those who are driving long distances for the first time.

Long-distance and long-distance driving experience

Proactive prevention

When driving a long-distance car, you may encounter many unexpected situations such as: a motorbike suddenly crossing or rushing in the opposite direction; pedestrians suddenly jump from the median; is naturally overtaking the vehicle next to it encroaching on the left; when turning a corner, encountering a vehicle from the opposite direction encroaching on the lane; while driving in front, suddenly brake suddenly…

An experienced long-distance driver differs from a novice mainly in his ability to judge and proactively avoid these dangerous situations. A capable driver is urgent but not in a hurry, fast but not reckless.

To proactively avoid dangerous situations, it is difficult to say difficult, but easy to say is also very easy. Because the final rule is still to comply with basic safety principles such as: keeping a distance, running at the allowed speed limit, slowing down when arriving at a road intersection, obeying the traffic rules. traffic signs

However, because it is a basic principle, it is easy to give rise to a mentality of contempt and subjectivity. It’s the thought that it’s okay to commit a crime once, it’s okay to step on the gas too much once, it’s okay to cross the lane once… that’s what causes you to put yourself in a dangerous situation. Therefore, instead of looking for techniques and experience to handle dangerous situations, always keep a proactive driving attitude to avoid danger.

When driving long distances, you should take the initiative to avoid danger early

Some people think that “I am not wrong when I follow the law, the wrong person must be taught a lesson”. With a complex traffic system like today, the phrase “one step back, the sky is calm and the sea is calm” would probably be more appropriate. Sometimes being eager to win confrontation only wastes time, even getting into unnecessary trouble.

Therefore, a long-distance driving experience that many old drivers share is to take the initiative to avoid, absolutely do not put yourself in dangerous situations. “I’m right or you’re right is not as important as we are both safe.”

Do not overtake carelessly

The number of traffic accidents occurring when passing vehicles often accounts for a high percentage. Most of the causes of accidents are due to careless overtaking, lack of observation, not controlling the speed… According to drivers in the long-distance driving profession, to be safe before passing other vehicles, you need to observe carefully. rearview mirror see how the cars behind are doing, is there any car trying to pass me.

If it is safe, turn on the turn signal and honk the horn or flash the headlights to signal to the vehicle behind and the vehicle in front. Next, do not pass right away, but wait for about 3 seconds to see how the vehicle in front reacts before allowing the vehicle to pass. When passing, you should definitely overtake, avoid parallel running. In case you need to enter the lane after passing, you must reach a safe distance to enter the lane. Many cases of cars overtaking containers due to insufficient safety distance entered the lanes, leading to serious collisions.

Absolutely do not overtake when cornering, curves. Limit drive next to a big carparallel with containers, trucks… This is not only long-distance driving experience but also basic driving principles that need to be followed.

Yield to the vehicle, please pass

When the car behind asked to pass, some people found the front to be open but still did not create conditions. Maybe they’re afraid that they’ll be blocked after they pass, or feel uncomfortable being overtaken, or simply don’t care.

Really shouldn’t. Because when participating in traffic, especially long-distance car driving, it is very necessary to support each other. This shows the sense of a cultured road user. If you see that the front is eligible to pass, give way by turning on the right turn signal, slowing down, slightly swerving to the right, creating conditions for the following vehicle to pass.

Absolutely do not increase the gas, press the left when others are about to pass or are overtaking. Because this action is very dangerous, it can lead to an accident. In case you see that the front is not safe enough for other vehicles to pass, you can turn on the left turn signal to give a signal.

Decelerate at the right time, in the right place

This is one of the notes when driving long distances that need to be kept in mind. When driving to a densely populated area, you should actively slow down even if there are no signs. Densely populated areas often have quite complicated traffic, it is easy to meet motorbikes or pedestrians crossing the road, even meet dogs, buffaloes, etc. So to avoid trouble, take the initiative to slow down early.

Another special note is to pay attention to observe and reduce speed (if necessary) when seeing signs of intersections, intersections with non-priority roads, especially when running on provincial roads. Although the road looks quite deserted and even if you are having the right of way through the intersection, be very careful. Because in these sections, it is easy to meet reckless motorbikes. Maybe 1000 times you go through these intersections without seeing any cars. But just once you are subjective and happen to meet the right car recklessly crossing, you will be in big trouble.

When running to places where turning is allowed, the eel breaks off for the car to cross… it is also necessary to actively slow down, pay attention to observe. Because these places often have cars turning around, cars from the left cross over, cars coming from the right side cross on the left…

One more thing to know when driving long distances is to slow down when visibility is limited. In case there is a large vehicle in front of you parked on the side of the road, blocking half of the lane, you should slow down. Because at this time you are out of sight, you may not be able to handle it in time if you meet a car or a pedestrian wants to cross the road.

Avoid oncoming traffic encroaching on the lane

When driving long distances, especially driving North-South, it is likely that you will encounter a situation where the vehicle from the opposite direction is encroaching on the lane to pass. If you see this “horror scene”, you should immediately take the initiative to give way. No matter how wrong they are, no matter how angry you are, create conditions for them to pass safely. Because “avoiding elephants is not a bad face”. If you deliberately confront them, not only them but even you can be in danger.

When you see an oncoming vehicle crossing the lane, quickly look at the right rearview mirror. If it is safe, turn on the turn signal and swerve to the right side of the road to avoid it. In case there is a vehicle on the right, you can brake and wait for that vehicle to pass and then pull over to the right side of the road.

Keep a safe distance

One thing that makes a lot of long-distance drivers frustrated is that when we keep a safe distance from the car in front, it’s like another car “fills in the blank” right away. Be calm, there is nothing to be angry about because the “characters” lack awareness, do not follow this safety rule at all! And especially, don’t go for these “characters” to win the road or break your safety rules.

When driving in the city, running at slow speed, tailgating is temporarily acceptable. But when highway driving, the road is extremely dangerous tailgating. Because it will not be able to handle it in time if the vehicle in front encounters an obstacle, the vehicle in front brake suddenly, or the vehicle in front crashes directly into the obstacle…

Cleverly when you see a motorbike encroaching on the left

When driving long distances, it is often easy to encounter a situation where there is a motorbike encroaching on the right, a vehicle running in the opposite direction on the left, and I am “forced” in the middle. This situation causes many inhibitions, especially for drivers of large vehicles such as passenger cars, containers…

According to the long-distance driving technique, if the road is wide enough for motorcycles to encroach on the left and the vehicle in the opposite direction encroach on the right, it’s okay, you can let the vehicle pass. But before passing, you need to honk your horn or flash your headlights from afar. Avoid coming too close to honk the horn because it can startle the motorbike.

If the road is too narrow, it is best to slow down and wait for the oncoming vehicle to pass and then overtake the motorbike. When passing a motorbike, you should keep a certain distance so that if the motorbike has a “problem” and falls in the middle of the road, it will not hit your car.

Limit emergency braking

Limit brake urgent except in case of emergency. Driving long distances, many people have the habit of immediately braking when they see a restaurant or a restaurant that they like. This is extremely dangerous because the cars behind will be difficult to handle, especially when running at high speed. If you want to run while searching for an address, a restaurant, a certain restaurant, it is best to move into the inner lane to run at a slow speed and navigate slowly.

When driving on the road, only brake hard in an emergency

Stop and watch when from the small road to the main road

When going from a small road to a major road without a red and green signal, you should stop and look to the left and right. If it is hidden, you should reach forward to see clearly. Only drive the vehicle when it is safe to do so. If the main road has many lanes, turn into the nearest right lane, then slowly change to the adjacent lanes.

Take advantage of Cruise Control but don’t be subjective

System Cruise Control Cruise Control Very helpful when driving long distances and long distances. Thanks to Cruise Control, the car automatically maintains the desired speed. The driver can temporarily relax, without needing to step on the accelerator. However, when using Cruise Control, be careful not to be subjective, avoid losing focus, or neglecting observation. The foot should always wait at the brake pedal in case of an emergency.

Be careful when running close to the eel

Being alert when running close to an eel is one of the things to know when driving long distances. Many people are often quite subjective when running next to an eel because they think that they only need to observe the right side of the road. In fact this is very wrong.

Because when running close to the eel, it is still possible to encounter many unexpected situations from the eel’s side such as: pedestrians suddenly rush out to cross the road, motorbikes and even cars run in the opposite direction close to the eel, motorbikes get in between your car and the eel… So be careful if you run close to the eel, especially at night.

Lower the window from time to time

Sometimes lowering the windows is one of the notes when driving long distances should apply. Because when the door is closed, turn on car air conditioner and choose internal air intake mode For a long time, the cabin is prone to lack of oxygen. This can cause fatigue and drowsiness. Therefore, if you come to a stretch of fresh air, you should lower the window or choose the mode to get outside air so that the air in the cabin is circulated.

Take a break in between

When driving long distances, especially long-distance driving at night, it is recommended to take a break every 2 hours or 200 km. You can combine going to the toilet, washing your face, eating, and doing some simple muscle relaxation movements… during these breaks. Resting in the middle of the road is How to prevent drowsiness while driving? effective, helping the body reduce fatigue, more alert mind.

If driving long distances at night is too drowsy, don’t try. Please park the car in a safe place and take a nap for about 15-30 minutes. Driving in a state of fatigue and drowsiness is very dangerous. Because at this time the reaction is often not agile, the ability to judge and handle is easily inaccurate. This is why when driving a long distance north-south often have 2 drivers to take turns.
