Every driver entering the road must thoroughly know the rules of the road. It's not for nothing that they say that they are written in blood. However, in addition to the official set of rules, there is a huge number of unspoken, so-called "popular" rules. With experience, most drivers begin to understand and adhere to them. For beginners, they are often unknown or incomprehensible. Today we'll talk about some of the unspoken driving rules that everyone needs to know.
1. One car - one parking space
It seems obvious. BUT … Why, then, entering any parking lot, you can definitely see unsuccessfully parked cars that take up a lot of extra space? There are two options. Either their owners did not pay attention to the quality of parking, or they simply do not know how to do it. In any case, one crookedly parked car creates a chain reaction, and now someone does not have enough parking space. Therefore, you need to firmly remember. In the parking lot, make sure that your car occupies only one parking space.
2. Skipping the oncoming traffic before turning to the left, do not turn the wheels
At first glance, this is a strange recommendation. But it has a fairly simple rationale. One light blow from behind, and where will the car go with its wheels turned? That's right, into the oncoming lane straight into the forehead of the oncoming traffic.
3. Do not brake sharply in front of trucks or buses
Imagine a situation: in front of a pedestrian crossing, on which a pedestrian is waiting to be passed. By the rules, you need to stop. But before that, be sure to look in the rearview mirror. If something large is driving behind, say, a bus or a truck, then it is better to disturb a little and pass the "pedestrian" without letting anyone pass. After all, such "giants" cannot brake as intensively as a passenger car. This should always be borne in mind. Experts of the Novate.ru website recommend before braking, unless, of course, it is extreme, lightly touch the brake pedal so that the brake lights come on, thus warning the pursuing car about the impending deceleration.
4. The safest speed is the flow rate
Newly minted drivers think it's safer for them to go as slow as possible. Not really. Here the following rule applies: "too fast is bad, too slow is also bad." The most correct choice of speed will be the same speed as the flow rate.
5. Signal headlights in case of danger, accident … or traffic police post
The most "popular" car signal. By blinking your headlights and warning oncoming drivers of the danger, you are doing a good deed and reducing the risk of an accident. Whether or not to warn about the traffic police post is everyone's personal business. BUT, to some extent, this is also a good deed, so …
6. Do not drive into an intersection, immediately behind which there is a traffic jam
This happens on road sections where the distance between intersections is short. If there is an intersection ahead of which there is a queue, it is better to stop in front of a traffic light, even if the green light is on. Otherwise, you can cause a real traffic collapse.
