How to recognize the fool and an elk on the road?
Each driver knows that, except the traffic regulations approved, signed and obligatory to execution, there is one more fundamental rule which is not included into official traffic regulations, but it is very much recommended for execution. This rule - “Three D“. That is Let the Fool Pass.
Also the prevention which should be engraved on each windshield of the car that drivers did not forget about it is available: “Carefully, elks!“.
Unfortunately, the knowledge of the rule “Rub D“, and also adoption note of the warning of elks not too helps drivers to get rid of the first and second. Fools and elks literally fill our roads. Therefore it is very important to learn to distinguish them on the very first signs, without waiting until they make something that will allow to refer them to the above-stated categories with confidence. The trouble is that “something“ usually is called “dorozhno - transport incident“. And that`s it it also should be avoided by all possible forces.
So, fools on the road. What do they differ from ordinary drivers in?
The main difference of the fool on the road that he considers himself by the most important. Not just one more participant of traffic, but - the king of the road. Traffic regulations are written for anyone, only not for it. Not without reason say that fools rush in where angels fear to tread. Also such fool respectively behaves.
That is if you saw that some car is too often reconstructed from a row in a row, then it can quite be the fool. The sign is not absolute as in certain cases even frequent evolutions are justified therefore it is necessary to observe: if as a result of change of a lane there is practically no prize, then you watch the fool.
And if when changing a row other cars if driving goes that is called too close to the foul - in full confidence that other participant of traffic will manage to brake or be reconstructed - that before you or the expert of driving who is able to expect actions of other drivers, estimating them on color of the car or an exhaust, or the fool are cut in front. It is rather - the last. Alas, fools on the road come across where more often than experts.
Also fools consider optional to include the index of turn. And it concerns not only evolutions, but also turn to the right or on the left. For example, the fool is sure that if he is in an extreme left or extreme right row, then it is enough that all knew - it is going to turn. At the same time does not concern him at all that from these ranks the movement in two directions is possible (directly and to the right, directly and on the left) that the drivers who are going to go directly are guided according to indexes of turn - if ahead the going car beeps turn, those who are going to go directly begin to be reconstructed if there is no signal, quietly remain among. But, as it was already told, the fool is concerned least of all by convenience of other people.
Start of the fool from the traffic light is especially beautiful. Red light on green as squeal of tires is already distributed does not manage to switch, and at times the sound effect is followed also by a charming smoke - and the fool rushes like mad to the following traffic light (which is usually burning with red light).
One more faultless sign by which it is possible to recognize the fool on the road - unmotivated aggression in relation to other drivers. Similar aggression includes giving of a sound signal without need (to the fool can seem that other participants of traffic not too hurry to start from the traffic light), and also the corresponding gesticulation and what is called an insult the word.
Fools are not only aggressive. There is a kind of rather peace fools - drivers who are not too sure of the driver`s qualities, badly feel the car, do not feel dimensions and so on. These do not gesticulate, but equally well, as aggressors, can create avariynoopasny situations. They differ in an uncertain manner of driving, indexes of turn include either too early, or too late, are often reconstructed from a row in a row, reserving too big or too small dimension (they are not especially sure of what distance when overtaking will be safe). Generally, rush about on the road approximately the same as a long-tailed cat in the room with rocking-chairs.
From the traffic light such drivers start usually with solid delay and to have them as ahead the going car - pure punishment. Besides there is never a confidence that, having stopped on a red signal of the traffic light, such fool will continue to stand still before change of a signal. He can think that he came around on “zebra“ and to hand over back to become “by rules“. Usually similar comes to an end at least with the crushed bumper (the fool can think only one thought for once, and, moving down from the crosswalk, does not think that behind there is other car which has no place to disappear!) .
If on the road the fool got to you, then it is necessary right there to begin to follow the rule “Rub D“. That is to let the fool pass in one way or another: to lag behind or overtake it. It is simpler to lag behind as many fools adore arranging road races, and attempt of overtaking can lead to creation of an avariynoopasny situation. Optimum - to pass the fool forward and to go quietly on the affairs. It is possible to overtake only peace fools, those that are not sure of themselves, - they do not arrange races, and opposite, are even happy when they are overtaken, - it is not necessary to think how to give way, having kept at the same time own minimum speed.
Elks on the road represent danger nearly big, than fools. At least because fools are protected by the car case, and here elks run in itself, without any protection, and in case of DDP suffer most strongly.
The elk inadequately perceives a road situation and can rush from the sidewalk on the carriageway at any time. Elks do not read the traffic regulation and therefore do not know that the tram is bypassed in front, and the trolleybus and the bus - behind. They bypass as it is represented to them convenient therefore the elk can come up from - for the trolleybus or the bus at the most unexpected moment - from the driver special vigilance near stops of public transport is required.
Crosswalks - the real moose ancestral lands. Yes, nobody argues that on “zebra“ the pedestrian has advantage that drivers are obliged to pass it. But an elk - the pedestrian unusual. It can quietly stand on a roadside, pretending that the crosswalk does not interest him at all and when the car approaches “zebra“ on the distance complicating braking (especially in the winter), the elk immediately rushes on transition. Moreover and in full confidence not only in the correctness, but also in the safety. Near crosswalks it is necessary to consider probability of appearance of elks and to dump speed better to begin in advance. And that you never know … will jump out.
But the crosswalk - not the only place where it is possible to meet moose herd. On the transitions regulated by traffic lights, these animals are found practically in unlimited number. At the same time they are inclined not to pay attention to color of a signal of the traffic light. Change of a green signal on red does not speak about anything to elks. They suffer from an original form of violation of color perception. Therefore you should not start too quickly from the traffic light - on the carriageway there can be slow elks.
Drivers! Be vigilant! Give way to fools and elks! And let your car does not know accidents, breakages and the erased rubber. Good luck on roads!
