How to the motorist to go to snow and on snow?
are Winter the most extreme season not only for thrill-seekers, but also for motorists. All of us not once got to the “snow traps“ placed by the mother the nature. Here you learn how is safe to steer the car during snowfall and on the roads covered with snow.
If the snow layer is thin and condensed, then there are no obstacles for the movement, on condition of knowledge that coupling with the road is much lower, than on a dry or wet covering. If snow lies a thick layer, then it is necessary to provide a possibility of slipping or jamming. It is especially difficult to go when in snow were formed deep a track. In these conditions it is necessary to move slowly because the track does not happen direct and equal, and the vyskakivaniye from it at great speed is obligatory will lead to loss of management.
Snowdrifts of several meters should be overcome from dispersal.
A the big brought sites of the road needs to be surveyed previously, having passed on them on foot because they threaten with serious jamming. If you see that you could not overcome from the first a snowdrift, then do not allow full jamming. It is necessary to stop and come back on an old trace, condensing, thus, a track, then again to disperse the car forward and to try to overcome a site.
Can happen so that your car uvyazat so strongly that “sits down“ in snow the lower part of the case, and wheels can even hang in mid-air. Do not try to be chosen by means of pro-slipping back, it conducts to bigger “instillation“ of driving wheels during snow. It is necessary to dig out the car a shovel, throwing out snow from - under bodies until wheels concern the road. Then it is necessary to undermine snow under forward and back wheels. Only after that it is possible to move slowly back.
Very good results at departure from snowdrifts are yielded by such actions:
a podkladyvaniye under wheels of sand, gravel, the stones, boards or even rugs taken from your car;
alignment of forward wheels. If wheels stand directly, they show small resistance to the movement if are turned sideways, then make departure impossible;
start-off from the place on the second transfer, then force of draft is less;
when independent departure of the got stuck car from - for pro-slippings of wheels is already impossible, the so-called way “the movement from the handle“ helps.
for this purpose is necessary:
1) to stop the engine, to switch off ignition;
2) to include the first transfer or back;
3) to go out of the car;
4) to take the starting handle and to insert into a ratchet of a cranked shaft;
5) to rotate a cranked shaft of the engine.
the Car will slowly move forward or back.
Such way yields in most cases good result, but it does not suit for front-wheel cars.
The movement in snowfall will not create to you special difficulties provided that you:
you will increase a distance to the car ahead;
constantly you assess a situation ahead and are ready to surprises;
you stop at the increased distance if ahead the going car stopped the movement;
periodically you check efficiency of brakes. Snow can get to the brake mechanism and their efficiency will weaken;
you will purify forward, back glasses and light devices. Screen wipers and heating can not cope with a large amount of snow and there will be crude places;
you will pass to the lowered speed in advance.
If you follow this advice, your driving will become more pleasant and that the most important, safe .
I Wish you good luck on roads!
