When driving in normal times, in case of emergency, many friends will press the brakes sharply, in fact, it is also very skillful to step on the brakes. If the sudden brakes are not stepped on, either the car is not braked, or the car brakes quickly, and the result is rear-ended, resulting in the car caught in the middle, and the injuries of both parties will be very troublesome. Today, Brother Meow will tell you about several key skills for pressing the brakes.
First, when you need to apply the brakes, you must not only look at the front of the car, but also look at the situation behind the car. The middle rearview mirror of the car is used as a makeup mirror by many friends, and it is used to take pictures of themselves at every turn. And there are many friends, piling a lot of things above the rear window, which is not right. The rear window must ensure that it can fully show the situation behind the car. You can put things on the rear window, but only put some very light things, such as clothes, and never block the rear window.
When pressing the brakes suddenly, combine the rearview mirrors on the left and right sides of the car to observe the specific situation behind the car. If the rear is followed by electric vehicles, motorcycles, especially large trucks pulling steel pipes, and pressing the brakes sharply, isn’t this his life? This is important when applying the brakes hard, so be sure to look behind you.
Second, because many times apply the brakes, it is a relatively urgent behavior. If your foot is still lightly on the accelerator at the moment of pressing the brake, it is very likely that the accelerator will be used as a brake. This is why when pressing the brakes hard, there will be a situation where the accelerator is used as a brake. Therefore, it is necessary to develop good driving habits, but whenever the car does not need to step on the accelerator, the foot must be lightly placed on the brake, so that at the moment of pressing the brake, the brake can be stepped on for the first time. So that there will be no situation of using the accelerator as a brake.
The third point is to press the brakes when the speed is relatively fast, in addition to paying attention to the rear, it is also necessary to give the rear car a clear emergency brake signal. Some cars are better designed, when pressing the brakes, the rear brake lights will flash, and a small number of cars will automatically light up with double flashes, but most cars do not have this function. When driving on a loop or on a highway, there is an emergency ahead and you need to apply the brakes.
It is recommended that you must manually press the double flash, through the double flash and brake lights to prompt the vehicle behind, in case of emergency need to press the brakes. Fourth, many years ago, cars were generally not equipped with ABS systems. Pressing the brakes sharply, not taking multi-foot brakes, but stepping on the brakes with one foot, it is easy to lock up. But now the car, ABS and ESP body stability systems are fully equipped.
Therefore, if you step on the brakes in an emergency, you can completely kick the brakes down. When you pedal down, you will feel that the brakes will have a rebound force, which is a rebound when the ABS starts working. No longer have to worry about locking up if the brakes are pressed like the previous car. It also allows you to step on the brakes in an emergency, helping to shorten the braking distance. The above points are summarized by Brother Meow to everyone, when you need to press the brakes, you need to pay special attention to safety matters, including some safety misunderstandings.
