1.27.1. At a wheel


The competent equipment of driving of the car also depends on the correct landing of the driver. The negligent, weakened landing (in particular when the driver puts out an elbow of the left hand in a window or leans a body on the left dverka, and the steering wheel holds one hand) does not provide constant readiness of the driver for fast and accurate actions in case of sudden change of a situation on the road. The correct landing – the driver rather densely leans on a back of a seat, a foot at full выжиме on pedals are extended not completely, and both hands which have been slightly bent in elbow joints, are located on a steering wheel. Position of a body should be steady, but not intense is prevents fast exhaustion.

Drive easy, holding slightly a wheel. Do not compress it as a vice, to a pobeleniye of fingers – the excessive effort and a nervous tension only tire an organism. Take for a rule at movement on direct sites of roads to keep a steering wheel in a range corresponding to the provision of hour hands from without ten two to without fifteen three. It gives the chance to conduct the car without any efforts and instantly to react to situation change on the road.

Clearness of action of the driver in driving substantially depends on a dress code, especially during winter time. The clothes should be easy, free and convenient. Try not to get into the car in ski or climbing boots, valenoks, high fur boots. Their bulkiness complicates fast management of pedals. Management of pedals and any footwear high-heeled complicates.
