HOWO Tractor Safe Driving Matters
As a HOWO tractor driver, you should not only master enough safe driving knowledge, but also have good psychological quality and the ability to anticipate road conditions, and to stay calm and safe driving when encountering special situations.
HOWO tractor safe driving matters of the one – not fatigue driving
When you are really tired and drowsy on the road, do not drive a HOWO tractor. Because in that state, your reaction is slower than usual and you may even doze off. Losing control for 1 second may even lead to the loss of your life and the lives of others. So when you feel sleepy, pull over and walk around, or take a break. Be sure to get a good rest before you hit the road. Staying alert and paying attention to the road at all times while driving can reduce the number of accidents.
HOWO tractor safe driving matters of the second – rainy day driving
Rainy weather can make the roads slippery and difficult to drive on, and the driving vision can be obstructed. In this case, you should turn on the HOWO tractor ‘s double flashers, slow down and always pay attention to the road conditions. No overtaking, no emergency braking, choose the right gear and drive at a constant speed.
Secondly, in the case of slippery road surface, the braking distance of the truck will be longer, in the driving must avoid stepping on the emergency brake, and the front car to leave enough safety distance, foresight driving is extremely important. When traveling, if the front wheel skids, the direction should be corrected in the opposite direction of the skid; if the rear wheel skids, the direction should be corrected towards the side of the skid.
HOWO tractor in the process of driving, always pay attention to the speed and direction of travel ahead, do not rush to accelerate overtaking. The reason is that in rainy days, the view is not good, in addition to the slippery road, forcing the overtaking line is likely to cause wheel slippage, collisions and other situations.
HOWO tractor safe driving matters of three – down long slopes
“Down long slopes” can be said to be a kind of road condition that many car owners are afraid of, because the truck is fully loaded and the weight of the whole vehicle is large, the downhill inertia will also be larger. Dozens of kilometers long downhill section, the need for continuous braking and slowing down, when the wheel hubs constantly friction heating, very easy to occur in the vehicle spontaneous combustion, the risk is great. When encountering this situation, the very beginning to control the speed, do not blindly overtake on the way, attention to stay focused on the road conditions ahead, so that HOWO tractor always in “control”.
In the case of the truck to maintain a low speed, depending on the situation and then apply the brakes. If the speed of the truck is too fast when going downhill, step on the brakes to see the effect immediately, do not step continuously, and quickly lower the gears. Brake failure is mainly because the brakes are stepped on too hard and the brake pads are too hot to lose their effect. Therefore, do not apply the brakes or tap the brakes too often on long descents.
HOWO tractor safe driving matters of the fourth – rural roads
When encountering highway maintenance or other situations, some drivers will choose to take a detour through village roads. When you encounter pedestrians and motorcycles, you should adjust your mind and take the initiative to avoid traffic accidents. The face of different driving conditions, we must calmly respond, control the steering wheel, smooth travel and safe return!
