Some of the Driving Tips

June 8th, 2012

Hello Viewers,

I m Sharing here some of the driving tips which is very useful while driving the cars, especially in INDIA.

Driving Tip in rain: Wet roads are more slippery, so leave extra space between you and other cars.

Check the air pressure in your car tyres regularly to save fuel, increase safety and reduce maintenance cost.

Do’s and Don’ts of Car wash: Wash off dead bugs, bird droppings and dust as soon as possible. A weekly car wash will keep the paint finish in its best shape. In addition, if you live in an area that suffers from acid rain, rinse your vehicle off after a period of rainy weather.

Relaxing tip while you’re waiting at the red signal: Bring your shoulders closest to your ears and back to normal position slowly. This eases the tension in your shoulder muscles.

Useful Tip: To avoid noise while shifting the reverse gear, depress the clutch pedal fully & wait approx. for 3 secs before shifting the gear.

Always keep puncture repair kit handy to perform temporary repairs for small punctures on tubeless tyres. It is available at all dealerships.

Ensure adequate tyre pressure – Check your tyres regularly and adjust it to appropriate pressure. It saves fuel and increases safety! Correct tyre pressure can also improve fuel economy by up to 1%-3%

Drive relaxed by anticipating traffic situations. Avoid constant accelerating-braking sequences. Change lanes early when approaching obstacles – always use left/ right turn signals. Smoothly equalize speed differences and allow other vehicles to proceed before you – be courteous to other drivers.

Avoid distractions while driving. Driving demands your full attention and distractions can increase the risk of a crash. Distractions include adjusting the radio, talking on mobile phones or with other passengers, sending text messages, etc. which can take your attention away from the road, and increase driving risk.

Use seat belts all the time. A seat belt can significantly reduce the chance of a serious injury or death. Fasten your seat belt before you turn on the engine and insist that all your passengers use their seat belts too.
