How to slow down by car?
Before you learn how to slow down oncar competently, without the consequent negative consequences, it is necessary to know that there are a lot of ways of braking. However, as practice shows, experienced drivers use only three of them - braking on the verge of blocking the wheels, combined braking, as well as intermittent braking. The type of braking and its features depend on the electronics, which is installed in the car, and also on the type of gearbox.
The presence of "mechanics" in the car requiresbraking on the included speed from the driver almost simultaneously clutch and brake. But seasoned drivers recommend to squeeze the clutch a couple of seconds earlier than the brake. If necessary, brake to a certain speed, you must first squeeze the clutch to the stop, and then press the brake, reducing the speed to the desired level. A full stop requires the driver to push the clutch and the brake as far as the stop. After that, you must turn on the neutral gear and release the two pedals - the brake and clutch. Execution of this braking algorithm in exactly the opposite leads to the jamming of the car. When driving a car in neutral gear, for example, when descending from a hill, there is no need to squeeze the clutch, and in pressing the brake pedal - there is if you want to brake with this kind of car movement.
General rules of braking
To know how to properly brake oncar with any gearbox, you need to have certain driving skills and observe the rules that are mandatory for every motorist. So, if you need to brake up sharply, be sure to look around if there is a driver behind you who is driving at high speed. If this rule is not respected, the moving vehicle will inevitably drive into the rear bumper of your car. Intensive braking on corners is forbidden to cars not equipped with the ABC system.
The presence of automatic transmission on the machine allows the driverbrake without pressing the clutch - only you have to squeeze the brakes. To stop completely, squeeze out the brake pedal by turning the gear knob to "P" (parking). If you need to continue driving after stopping, release the brake pedal - the machine will continue to drive.
Braking on ice
Before you brake on the car in ice,remember one rule - in this weather do not drive at high speeds. The greater the speed of the machine, the greater its stopping distance, so be sure to observe the recommended distance on the road in order to avoid an accident. On the ice it is recommended to brake step by step so that your car does not skid. The following braking technique is used on a slippery surface - first a reduced gear is engaged, but you do not press the brake. The machine will start to reset the speed, and then you can brake in the usual way. And it is recommended to press the brake with intermittent movements.
