When to change
Cases where there is a need to rebuild the maneuver lanes, not so much. Rebuilding in the adjacent (left or right) for the purpose of taking the lane designated for the turn at the intersection, changing lanes to bypass the obstacles encountered is found (public transport, traffic or traffic accident) – that's the whole list of driving situations that encourage the driver to change the lane to the other.
Preparing for change
Carefully look around and assess the situation on the road ahead of the vehicle, rear and sides. To obtain full information about road conditions using the rear-view mirror and lateral mirror, do not disregard also turns the head back and to the side, but it should be done promptly and without unnecessary delay, so as not to lose control of the situation on the road ahead and not to start to "tune" suddenly stopped the car in front.
Pay special attention to motorcyclists who like to zigzag between the rows of cars, the ubiquitous taxi drivers and buses, leaving public transport with incomprehensible to other participants of traffic the pressure and the vicious desire to quickly join the flow of cars.
First turn on the turn signal, alerting the participants of their own and neighboring lanes of its intention to readjust. Next will sound like truisms, however, we repeat once again: to rebuild in the next number of movements required to achieve the same speed with which it moves in the stream of cars. Because then you'll without problems and unpleasant consequences "login" in this moving stream.
If the speed in the next row is lower than ours, no questions asked. Just slow down the pace, working the brake pedal and causing unhappy beeps coming from behind cars. But if the speed in the next row above? How to accelerate to the desired speed in this case?
And here all is simple – slow down the pace a little, increasing the distance between himself and the vehicle in front and providing a stretch of road that is needed for overclocking.
Select in and out of traffic, following us according to the band, "the window" and, once again assessing the traffic situation, turn the wheel and merge into traffic. Please refrain from lowering the speed after a rebuild, otherwise moving behind a car just slam into the backside of your machine, and guilty of committing the accident will be unanimously recognized you.
Upon completion of the maneuver thank the driver, losing your place in traffic, briefly triggering a "gang".
When it is not so simple
There are cases, when the rebuilding of the adjacent lane becomes a very difficult task. Low speed on both bands or the complete absence of traffic on them. Under these conditions, the traffic density of vehicles is very high, machines are located closely one after another and the idea to squeeze between them seems fantastic and impossible. Whether so it actually?
With the included turn signals are starting to shift towards the desired lane, clearly showing its intention to readjust. Approaching as close as possible to the stream of cars and switches to continuous focus. Not arguing, three or four machines will ignore your request to share the place in the lane, but decent and adequate driver in fifth or sixth will slow down and slow down, creating a small "window" in the dense flow of traffic for you.
In such situations it is necessary is very thin to feel the atmosphere, to not take the ordinary speed reduction for a false signal vstuplenia road.
Dangerous and at the other extreme, when losing you the way and not waiting until you enabled the turn signals decide to rebuild, the angry driver adds speed and passing by.
Good luck with your rebuild on the road! No nail, no wand!
