When it snows, drivers should not only be wary of the ice and snow on the ground, but also be careful of passing vehicles and pedestrians. In addition, the number of motor vehicle drivers has increased rapidly in the past two years. Many novices without ice and snow driving experience are on the road, which has caused great difficulties for driving in snowy days.
How to ensure life safety after snow driving
Many novice drivers have to be careful of the snow and ice on the road for two years. In addition, many novice drivers have to be careful of the snow and ice, which makes it difficult for them to drive on the road without snow and ice.
In the morning, many car owners hurriedly cleared the snow on the front and rear windscreens and windows that affected their vision and went on the road. They let the snow on the car body melt by itself. However, this will not only hurt the car paint and affect their vision, but also throw snow on the road during driving, which will bring hidden dangers to road safety. Therefore, after a heavy snow, the snow on the windshield, headlamp and reflector must be removed before starting the car to ensure that the line of sight is not affected when driving. It is best to prepare a piece of cotton cloth at hand, which can wipe the fog and mirror inside the window when parking on the way to maintain a good line of sight. If possible, special articles can be coated on the interior glass to reduce fog.
In addition, the snow on the vehicle body will also increase fuel consumption, so it is very necessary to clean the snow on the vehicle body in time before going on the road. However, do not use hot water during cleaning, because hot water will instantly heat up the car paint and cause cracking. Use constant temperature water to wash away the snow on the car body.
Try not to park on the pavement at night in winter
After the heavy snow, many car owners will have such a mentality: the weather is capricious recently. Don't wash the car first, and then wash it when it's completely sunny. But I'm afraid the driver doesn't know. If the snow is not cleaned in time, even if the snow on the car body is cleaned, the erosion of residual substances on the car paint can't be completely removed. In addition, the snow on the road also has an erosive effect on the tires. In particular, tires made of rubber are more vulnerable to erosion. If they are not cleaned in time, it is easy to change the original physical properties of tires and accelerate aging.
At the same time, professionals remind car owners to avoid parking on the road platform at night in winter. If you park outdoors for a long time in a snowy day, the glass and the rubber near the door will be frozen because of the cold. Don't use the door lifter immediately after getting on the bus. Wait until the temperature in the car rises, so as to avoid unnecessary troubles such as glass falling out and motor burning. In order to deal with the ice on the glass, prepare a hard plastic scraper. When there is snow and ice on the glass, remove it with a plastic scraper. Avoid scratching the glass when removing ice and snow. The plastic blade should not be scraped back and forth, but should be pushed in the same direction.
Driving in snowy days without eye protection, and getting snow blindness
Careful car owners found from the night of the snow that after the snow, not only the line of sight was very good, but the road also looked very bright, which was caused by the light reflected by the snow. So, during the day, especially when the sun comes out, the reflection of snow on light is stronger. Will this affect driving safety? For this, experts remind: eyes exposed to the light reflected by snow for a long time will lead to 'snow blindness'. This is by no means alarmist. Its symptom is red eyes, fear of light and tears.
Top ten tips for driving after snow:
1. Never rely on high-tech braking systems such as ABS and EBD. It only plays an auxiliary braking role.
2. Be sure to keep your eyes clear, no matter how anxious you are.
3. Whenever you stop, stay away from the car in front, especially on a slope.
4. It's best to add some counterweight to the car. When the weight of the car increases, the braking distance will be shorter.
5. Make sure there is no snow or thin ice on the soles of your shoes when driving.
6. Pay attention to lifting the wiper blade after stopping the vehicle overnight, so as to avoid freezing the next day.
7. When it snows during the day, be sure to turn on the fog lights.
8. Don't overtake or change lanes on icy and snowy roads.
9. Keep away from the bicycle as far as possible to prevent accidents from slipping.
10. Do not step on the brake, release the clutch or refuel sharply during driving to avoid sideslip.
