“Safety” is absolutely superior to any other element, both for the general transport industry and for every truck driver who makes up this huge industry. It can be said that there is no security, no matter how superb driving technology you have, how good the source of goods, even if you have learned the legendary "perfect martial arts" in the rivers and lakes, and successfully achieved "zero fuel consumption", it will not help. Because security = life, life is gone, there is no meaning in making money.
Regarding safety, especially the driving safety that is closely related to our truck drivers, the divers are all attached to it without exception. But if I want to ask everyone a question: How can driving be safer? I believe that most of the card friends will instantly sneak a sneak peek, and then answer the answer "slowly open, not speeding, not fatigued," and so on. It is undeniable that this is indeed a very important part of safe driving, but as a professional driver. Just knowing these "superficial" safe driving knowledge is not enough.
"Defensive driving", maybe many experienced drivers have heard of it, but the true understanding and strict driving in this way, compared to the entire truck driver group, the ratio is not high. Now, I would like to share with you an important skill about the “defensive driving” . I hope that everyone will be proficient and make their driving safer.Regarding this technique, there is a question. When you are driving daily, how far is it from the front car to be safe?This problem seems very simple, if you follow the old driving habits, most drivers may answer length units such as XX meters.However, in defensive driving, the safety distance from the preceding vehicle is not calculated in meters, but is calculated in terms of time. The currently widely recognized safety time is about 3-5 seconds. Of course, the speed of response of each individual, the performance of the vehicle is not exactly the same, so this is only an average. For most of the time, 4 seconds is enough to reduce the security risk to a very low level.
There may be a driver asking questions, how is the time used to control the distance from the front car? This problem is actually very simple. No matter what your speed is, find a fixed reference object next to your front car, such as signs, trees, buildings and other signs, drive forward according to the current speed, and drive for four seconds. Just beside the reference object, if you arrive in less than four seconds, it will prove that you and the car are not safe enough.
The method of using time to ensure safety is also applicable to the observation of the front of the road during daily driving. Most people watch the road in front of the road for about 5 seconds, but for those who drive heavy trucks for a long time, this time does not meet the requirements of defensive driving. In order to ensure sufficient safety, at least the range of sight observation should be increased to a driving distance of more than 15 seconds, so as to ensure that nothing is lost.
The essence of "defensive driving" is more than just this one, because driving looks simple, but it is a job that requires a lot of skill. If you don't feel that this kind of article is boring, I will continue to share more dry goods about safe driving. I hope that this content will enable everyone to be safe in the future transportation career.
