6 tricks and tricks that make life easier for any driver

Modern man spends driving a huge amount of time. Knowing some of the nuances of operation, the driver can simplify his car life and avoid many problems. About the best tricks and tricks for drivers – further review.

1. Tennis ball in the garage
This advice will be more useful for beginners who still feel bad dimensions of the car. The trick is this: in the garage you just need to hang the tennis ball on the rope in such a way that it touches the windshield of the car at the moment when the car drove into the garage to the required depth. In general, there is nothing easier, the ball touched the windshield – it means brakes! Such a device will help newcomers feel more confident when arriving at the garage, as well as develop a sense of size.

2. Weaken windows – turn on the air conditioner
Autumn and winter one of the biggest problems for drivers are misted windows. In one of the past materials Novate.ru it was said that the windows are sweating due to high humidity and temperature changes in the cabin and on the street. Of course, it is impossible to go with steamed windows in any case. To dry them, just turn off the stove for a couple of minutes to start the air conditioner and turn on the windscreen blowing. Air conditioning will dry the air in the cabin, and the windows will be transparent.

3. Watch for higher traffic participants.
When driving in traffic, it is very important to predict the situation in advance. This will help in this high cars. These can be trucks or buses. They can be seen from afar and from them one can assess the traffic situation in advance. For example, if a truck in front began slowing down or rebuilding, then it is better to slow down, even if the vehicle in front has not done so. So no emergency braking of the car in front will take you by surprise.

4. High Beam Before Cold Start
Starting in the cold is another problem. Both the engine and almost all the mechanisms of the vehicle are subjected to increased load. This exercise is especially difficult given to the battery. To facilitate the task, you can turn on the high beam before running for a couple of minutes. This will trigger the chemical reaction inhibited by cold and help increase the battery’s starting current.

5. It’s not so easy to drive through puddles.
Driving on a wet road carries many hidden dangers. The biggest of them is aquaplaning. Water enters the wheel protector, which is why the car rises above the road – it actually floats. At this point, the car has absolutely no traction. To avoid this, you must deliberately reduce the speed of movement in wet weather. If aquaplaning did come, in no case can not turn the steering wheel. It is only necessary to drive through such a section with straight wheels, gradually reducing the speed.

6. It is not necessary to turn the wheels, passing a counter flow when turning left
It would seem that there is such a thing. However, not all so simple. It is necessary to turn on the logic a bit and think about what will happen if another car enters the car from behind with the wheels turned out. That’s right, the one who was driven into, will roll straight into the oncoming lane, where the probability of a head-on-head accident is great.
