Riding safety: understand the dead zone of other vehicles

I often see some people, especially some bicycles, turn on the “let me go” mode.

I don’t know if they have thought about whether other cars must have noticed you.

Learning and understanding these are the necessary safety awareness for us to ride.

Of course, share it with every driver around you! “Death blind spot” usually, many of the serious injuries caused by large engineering vehicles are caused by the inner wheel difference when turning right.

This area is the blind area of the driver’s line of sight, and this blind area is called “death blind area”.

Generally, the small car will produce an inner wheel difference of nearly 1m, and the large car will produce an inner wheel difference of up to 2m.

Six blind spots when driving on the road 1.

A-pillar blind spot (more slow speed can be avoided) countermeasures: now many new cars are equipped with intelligent safety system, which can carry out blind spot alarm.

As long as a car or person drives into the blind spot of the front A-pillar, the vehicle intelligent system will give a warning.

If there is no such system, the driver should pay more attention to the road conditions ahead, slow down and look as much as possible.

He can move forward only when he has a clear view of the road conditions.


Countermeasures: the traffic police once installed a camera on the right rear-view mirror of the cement tanker and installed a display in the cab to avoid the tragedy of inner wheel difference.

The effect is very good.

When pedestrians cross the road, do not lean too close to the turning car, and stay more than 2 meters away from large cars.

Especially at the green light, don’t overtake the turning motor vehicle first.

Don’t stop beyond the zebra crossing at a red light, as it is easy to be involved in the wheels by the difference between the inner and outer wheels of the turning vehicle.


Overtaking blind spot (the car in front suddenly slows down, most of which is dangerous) countermeasures: the old driver’s experience is “overtaking the head and meeting the tail”, that is, when overtaking a car running in the same direction, we must pay attention to its front, because a car that seems to be running slowly may actually be avoiding pedestrians.

Pay attention to its tail when the opposite car meets, because there may also suddenly jump out of pedestrians crossing the road.

At this time, if you hastily accelerate and overtake, it is likely to be dangerous.


Blind area of rear-view mirror (discontinuous lane change, look at the rear-view mirror) countermeasures: when maintaining normal driving, always visit the reflector and master the situation behind the car at any time.

If the car behind suddenly disappears, it is likely to have entered the blind spot.

Be more careful.

When preparing to change lanes or turn, turn your head to the direction to turn, and then change lines or turn when it is safe.

Continuous lane change is very dangerous and is not allowed by traffic regulations.


Mountain road blind area (mountain road with many bends, slow driving and concentrate) countermeasures: when driving on mountain road, you must pay more attention to the warning signs on the roadside, and it is best to whistle when passing through the bend.

When driving in curves, pay attention to control the speed and drive on the right side of the lane as far as possible.

Because of the blind area, you don’t know whether there are incoming cars in the opposite lane in the corner.

Both sides drive close to the center of the road at the corner, which is very prone to scratching accidents.

Therefore, you should pay special attention when turning.


Light blind area (don’t follow the car too close when leaving the tunnel) countermeasures: the driver’s field of vision is limited when sitting in the car.

Usually, he can only see the situation in front with the naked eye.

If he is too close to the car in front, the driver’s field of vision will be blocked by the car in front and can’t clearly observe the traffic situation in front.

Therefore, when you get out of the tunnel or stay up late, don’t follow the car too close.

Cherish life and stay away from large engineering vehicles and trucks, which is something that knights should always remember…
