driving Receptions in city conditions
(A part 3)

Especially it is necessary to be attentive at driving in a stream with the jointed bus at which at sharp maneuvers trailer carrying out is possible. Therefore, if the bus has given a maneuvering signal (fig. 29), it is necessary to accept safety measures urgently: if you are at a hook-on part sideways the bus it is better to pass it forward or to promote to forward section of the bus.

For a trolley bus are characteristic, except braking at stops, unexpected stops (pritormazhivanija) in junctions of the Contact wire and decrease in speed on turn. Therefore, Moving behind trolley bus, it is necessary to be constantly ready to sudden braking.

Possibilities of maneuvering of a trolley bus are limited by presence of a contact wire, however it is capable to deviate freely and sharply on some metres in both parties a contact wire and can quickly (even in comparison with the car) To be dispersed from a place. Therefore the driver, making of the decision on a detour or trolley bus overtaking, should consider these features.

the Situation at which the driver of the car, without expecting a trolley bus deviation, it has appeared in "ъряърэх"

On fig. 30 the characteristic error of the driver who is going round a trolley bus on the left strip at mnogorjadnom movement is shown. The driver does not see that the trolley bus because of car unsuccessfully standing ahead of it (fig. 30, it is compelled to deviate strongly to the left (fig. 30,), and the car will appear in "ъряърэх". On rather narrow road it is expedient to lower beforehand for safety speed that the trolley bus has completely left a stop, and only after that to make overtaking.

At driving in a stream with tram it is necessary to consider that for it frequent stops are characteristic. If the tram cloth is located flush with road, it is necessary to stop together with tram to pass passengers for landing and disembarkation. To avoid these stops, the majority of drivers try to go ahead of a tram.

At driving in a city the driver often should turn, crossing a tram cloth. Carrying out this maneuver, it is necessary to be convinced of absence in immediate proximity a tram and in case of need it is obligatory to pass it. In a place of a lining of a tram cloth the road is usually covered by a stone blocks. Skilled drivers know that on a wet and dirty stone blocks slip wheels and drifts are possible. Therefore such site should be passed without change of giving of fuel and braking. Besides, in no event to slip it it is impossible to try before tram as the brake way of a tram is considerable.

Turning on the left simultaneously with tram, the driver should remember that at a tram on turn "т№эюёш=" an external back part. Therefore in this case it is necessary to provide an interval of safety not less than 1,5 m not to receive notable lateral blow.

For today parkovanie is a burning issue of modern cities. From drivers politeness and courtesy in a parking choice is required. In the constrained conditions of city streets to put the car on parking it is necessary on specially taken away platforms or along streets if on them there are no signs and a marking, forbidding a stop or parking.

The Car can be put along sidewalk or at an angle to it. Actions of the driver at statement of the car along sidewalk are shown on fig. 31. Approaching on a place of a prospective stop (1), it is necessary to look in a rear-view mirror and in the absence of hindrances to include the turn index. Carrying out evolution (2), it is necessary to reduce gradually speed of movement, carefully to examine a place of a prospective stop and, smoothly turning to the right (5), to approach on a border, without concerning it bokovinami tyres. Having levelled the car in parallel a border (4) and definitively having braked, it is necessary to disconnect a signal of turn and to stop the engine.

Closely to sidewalk it is not necessary to stop, as departure is complicated by that the right wheel at steering wheel turn to the left will rest in bordjurnyj a stone.
