no need to assume that once already have the right, then sit behind the wheel you are somehow able to do.Oddly enough, but many drivers still, men or women, even those with solid experience, often do not know the basic rules of landing at the wheel and the steering wheel manipulation or neglect them.Moreover, these rules are not that complicated, but their implementation will greatly facilitate the management of the car and make driving safer.And who of us wants the other?

Before you get behind the wheel, you should develop a habit to inspect the vehicle before departure.At the same time examined the roadway near and under the car (there may be hazardous items, animals, children playing), checked all external lights and signaling devices, the purity and integrity of the vehicle glazing, emphasis of tires and their degree of pumping.

So you got behind the wheel.Now you need the correct position on the seat.Some make the mistake of sitting too close to the steering wheel or almost hanging on it.This leads to the fact that during long rides driver arm tire quickly and, more importantly, it is not capable of rapidly and freely rotate the steering wheel in case of need.

inexperienced driver instinctively sits close to the steering wheel, as it seems that this situation is more visible.However, the visibility and the visibility of this does not improve, but the speed of the steering wheel deteriorates.In addition, without a back support, you'll quickly get tired.

Modern cars have a longitudinal adjustment of the seat and weight, backrest angle adjustment, and some of the steering wheel.This allows taking into account the individual characteristics of a body of the driver to adjust the workplace, taking into account ease of management and traffic safety.Proper planting helps to reduce fatigue during long rides, provides freedom of movement and maximum visibility, allows to make the minimum mental and physical efforts to control the car.
