Three practical braking tips

  • In our daily driving process, we often use the brakes, but some novice drivers often do not know how to use the brakes reasonably, and develop some bad habit of stepping on the brakes over time. These bad habits are not only harmful to the car, but also very fuel-intensive. Some habits may also affect driving safety. After communicating with some experienced drivers, the old car repairer today summarized 3 very practical car braking techniques for everyone, novice drivers must check it out!

    Braking is an important function that we often use in our daily driving. However, some novice drivers often don't know how to use the brakes reasonably. If the brakes are not good for a long time, they will develop some bad habits. These bad habits are not only harmful to the car, but also consume a lot of fuel, causing us to increase the cost of driving. Some bad habits will also affect our driving safety and the service life of control cable assemblies. After we communicated with some experienced drivers, Huafeg summarized three very practical car braking techniques in different situations. Novice drivers must check it out!

    First of all, don't brake too often. Many drivers brake when encountering road conditions, and the brakes are very urgent. Some novice drivers will brake quickly, even if they are nervous or tens of meters away from obstacles. Frequent sudden braking is not only the wear and tear of the brake pads and the auto clutch cable and automobile control cables in the control cable assemblies, but also the passengers on the car. More importantly, this is also very dangerous for children, especially if they have naughty children in the back row, which is very dangerous.

    In addition, many cars have a brake assist function. If you suddenly step on the brake, the brake assist will intervene. Therefore, this will cause a situation where I will passively brake suddenly even if I don't want to brake suddenly.

    The second point is to step on the brakes and keep slowing down on long slopes. Many drivers of automatic transmission vehicles use reverse downhill and brakes to maintain deceleration. Some manual car drivers also use neutral gear and use the brakes to control speed. Let's not talk about the danger of coasting in neutral. If you step on the brakes for a long time, not only the wear of the brake pads will accelerate, but the brake discs will also overheat, the automobile control cables will be damaged, and the braking performance will drop sharply.

    If you don't believe it, look at heavy trucks. Many long slopes have cooling pools on half of the slope, and heavy trucks will splash and brake when they descend long slopes. The correct approach is to stick to a low gear, use engine resistance to control the vehicle speed, and appropriate brakes to assist in deceleration.

    The third point is to use the accelerator instead of the brake. This sentence sounds inconsistent, but after I say it, you won't feel inconsistent anymore. Beginners often don't predict the road conditions in advance when driving. They just remember to release the accelerator when something is approaching and then use the auto clutch cable to brake. And experienced drivers always observe and listen in all directions. Knowing the situation and predicting in advance, the situation ahead will be clearer. In the event of an unexpected situation, first release the accelerator to slow down, and if the situation changes, step on the brake to help slow down. Therefore, all you have to do is to refuel and control the auto clutch cable to move forward, even if the deceleration effect is not great, at least you can save fuel.

    The above are 3 practical car braking techniques summarized by Huafeng for you. We are brake cable providers. The control cable assemblies we provide are durable and high in quality. Appropriate use of the techniques we suggest can save fuel for our car. It is best for novice drivers to read carefully if the car is injured.
