Hell of a driver’s error on the highway

Hell of a bunch of drivers’ mistakes on the highway
Motorways are something that has been promised to Poles for years by successive government teams. We have almost one and a half thousand kilometers of them in Poland, while the number of expressways is slightly lower. However, in pain and at inflated costs, new ones arise, thanks to which Polish drivers may at least have a substitute for driving comfort, which is a standard in the western border.
Traveling on the motorway is characterized by considerable comfort and speed, but unfortunately speed inversely affects safety. That is why it is worth knowing and applying elementary rules of driving on motorways and expressways in order not to become a digit in official statistics of accidents.
Above all, driving on motorways requires greater concentration than driving on ordinary roads. The higher the speed, the worse for our perception and reflexes. For this reason, motorway travel and poor psychophysical condition, exhaustion or excessive anxiety is a risky idea. The same applies to the use of certain medicines that can affect the driver’s reactions. Sometimes the pill itself will not have any undesirable side effects, but drinking a drink containing caffeine or some fruit juice can cause disqualifying people from driving. However, even if we get into a car that is rested and full of positive energy, a long drive will do the trick. Sooner or later we will get tired and sleepy. For your own safety, it is better to get off the highway in a convenient place and take a short nap. Such regeneration means much more than a bucket of coffee from a petrol station or a radio playing the whole regulator. In some studies, the authors prove the theses about loud music that increases the tendency to risky behaviour on the road. Certainly, there is a grain of truth in it, disregarded rather by fans of deafening slates. It is also in our interest to create a pleasant atmosphere inside the car, so efficient air conditioning will be very useful.
A big sin of the driver is to talk on a mobile phone, not to mention writing text messages behind the wheel. Even if we use a hands-free car kit, our concentration suffers, and we want to get off the motorway without any harm. In addition, loud passengers or bored kids in the back seat can also be a stress factor. It would also be a bad idea to wear uncomfortable shoes. The foot should not get tired and the pedal controls should be free. In this context, the sight of a motorized woman armed with pins is more frightening than funny.
Many drivers forget that the motorway is also subject to traffic regulations. That’s why they check how much the factory has given each time. Meanwhile, speeding and bravado are one of the most common causes of accidents. According to police statistics from 2012, more than 80% of all traffic accidents in the USA were caused by the driver, more than 28% of whom were caused by speeding. It is important to be aware that if driving on the motorway is faster than on other roads, it is in a good mood to keep a greater distance from other vehicles. We don’t want to “knock” anybody out or have someone drive into us from behind. For the same reason, you should be very careful when entering the motorway. The length of the runway should ensure safe entry. On the other hand, when driving off such a road, always remember to reduce your speed. By observing these basic rules we protect our life and health as well as the health of ourselves and others.
