The parking heater explains the precautions for driving in winter
In winter, the temperature keeps dropping, rain and snow weather, foggy weather, etc. are volatile. The ground is slippery in rain and snow, and visibility is low in foggy days. Accidents may occur if you drive in such bad weather without paying attention. Therefore, you must be careful when driving in winter. Today, I will explain the five precautions for driving safety in winter.
1.First, start hot cars in winter
In fact, there are many controversies about hot cars. The focus of the dispute is not the question of whether the cars are hot or not, but how to heat the cars. Some driver friends like to idle the car until the engine reaches the working temperature before starting, so that the hot car will easily cause the car to produce carbon deposits. As for the harm of carbon deposits, I will not repeat them here. So how is the correct way to warm up the car? After the vehicle is hitting, idle at the same speed for 1 to 2 minutes, then start to drive slowly, and you can accelerate after the water temperature indicator goes up. When the car is warming up during driving, refuel stably and avoid sudden acceleration. Because the lubrication performance of the vehicle oil is relatively poor when the vehicle does not reach the operating temperature, if the accelerator is stepped on, the wear of the vehicle engine will increase.
2. Use lights correctly in foggy days
The foggy weather in winter also gradually increases, and the fog will reduce the visibility and affect the driver's sight. If it is foggy, the front and rear fog lights should be turned on, and if the visibility is relatively low, hazard warning lights should be turned on. If the high beams cannot be turned on at night, because the high beams are turned on to illuminate a large area, it is easy to cause scattering in foggy weather. If the high beams are turned on, the driver will feel a blank area in front of him, which will seriously affect the line of sight.
3. Keep a safe distance in rain and snow
Rain and snow will gradually increase in winter. Rain and snow will not only affect the sight of drivers, but also cause slippery roads due to rain and snow. Therefore, the braking distance will also increase. Therefore, in rainy and snowy weather, keep a safe distance from front to back to avoid rear-end collision. In winter, the wiper should be replaced and cleaned in time to prevent the wiper from being dirty and affecting our sight.
4. Keep a safe distance when driving in foggy weather
Foggy weather will seriously affect the driver's line of sight, so when driving in a foggy day, you must keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front and not too close to the vehicle. When driving in a foggy day, you cannot change lanes or overtake at will. If the vehicle in front has an accident or breaks down, if you follow too close, the following vehicle may not have time to react.
5. The warm air temperature should not be too high
Everyone knows that if the heater is turned on too high, it is easy to get sleepy, and may become very sleepy after driving for a period of time. When the human body is sleepy, its ability to respond and respond to changes becomes worse. If you are really tired, you should stop and rest for a while before continuing on the road. Even if there are many hidden dangers of fatigue.
In winter, both road conditions and sight lines will be poor. Therefore, we must be particularly careful and cautious, and actively respond to various complex weather and road conditions. During the driving process, the energy must be highly concentrated, especially when the line of sight is not good, pay attention to motor vehicles, non-motor vehicles and pedestrians coming out at any time. The above five points may not be comprehensive, and there may be errors, but safety is important after all. Being cautious is not a bad thing. Pay attention to details to ensure safety. Driving a car requires a good habit.
