Secrets to driving well with full support

Take a test Ask your friends, family or acquaintances how they drive. Or direct them to acknowledge that they do it wrong. The truth is that no one will recognize it and that everyone believes to know how to drive like a pro. So is. Few drivers recognize that they drive poorly; that they have shortcomings and that they should sign up, for example, to some driving course organized by theĀ Excel driving school.

  1. At the wheel

To drive well you have to start at the beginning: sit well behind the wheel. Lose a minute and you will gain security. With your back well attached to the backrest, stretch one arm completely, without separating the shoulder from the backrest. Place the stretched arm just above the rim of the steering wheel.

The hand should be behind the steering wheel and wrist just above the rim of the steering wheel. The legs should be slightly bent to get to all the pedals. Adjust the mirrors well and you can already buckle the safety belt.

  1. View

Youhave to educate the view to look far away and anticipate everything that may happen ahead. This is important on the highway, where the speed is high for example, to detect braking or typical retentions.

Also pay attention to the possible sudden incorporation of vehicles to the road as trucks, tractors or bicycles. Never trust what you do not see with your own eyes. And always adapt the speed to what can be seen and distrust curves with little or no visibility.

  1. Brake

All cars already have ABS. The principle is very simple: with the wheels blocked the car has no direction. Therefore, the ABS prevents the front wheels from being blocked no matter how hard the braking is. In this way, braking to park or at a traffic light in the city is very easy. To stop the car, in case of possible collision, you only have to do two things, but do them well: brake very hard, as if we had to break the pedal and steer the car with the steering wheel to a safe place. We must forget about everything else (change, clutch or accelerator) if we want to stop well.

  1. Distractions

This point requires the application of a lot of common sense. The most serious accidents are often the result of a distraction. Therefore, it is necessary to avoid them and not to manipulate in March any type of entertainment device of the current ones. Of course, the browser must be programmed at a standstill, before leaving.It is even preferable to avoid what type of conversations, even with your hands free. A heated argument over the phone can have dire consequences at the wheel.
