For beginners who are just starting their journey, safety of passing through a pier of limited width is undoubtedly a serious problem. If you are not careful, car will not only get scratched, but may also get stuck. So what should a beginner pay attention to when driving through a limited width pier in order to pass safely and easily? Hurry up with editor to find out.
Many car owners will say that such a pier, which limits width, interferes, why put it there? This is because width-limiting pier has function of stopping overloaded carts and protecting newly built roads. We must know that road construction is not a trivial matter, it requires a lot of effort, material resources and financial resources, and damage caused by overloaded trucks to road surface is very great. If these overloaded vehicles pass by frequently, a road that has been used for five years can turn into potholes in just one or two years.
How can beginners navigate limited width pier smoothly? First of all, we need to confirm whether our car's width can pass through width limit support. Generally, width of width limit support is about 2.2-2.4m. If your car's width is between 1.8 and 2 .0 m, compared to width-limiting pier. There is a distance of 20 cm on left and right side, so car can pass. If you don't know width of your car, you can check your car measurements or get off car and measure it with a tape measure.
After confirming that vehicle's width can pass through width limiting support, next step is to straighten body and begin passing. When passing through a pier of limited width, everyone must control speed of vehicle and walk along stone pier on left. The reason you stick to left side is because as long as you gauge distance on left, there will be plenty of room on right and right front wheel won't get scratched much.
In addition, during overtaking process, everyone must roll down driver's window so that they can accurately estimate distance between car body and stone pier on left. When front of car passes safely, we cannot be too happy too soon. We must pay attention to rear-view mirrors on both sides to judge distance between rear of car and stone pier. After rear of car passes safely, we can turn direction .
Actually, passing a limited width pier is not as difficult as one might imagine. For novice drivers, as long as they overcome mental stress, safely passing a limited width pier is not a problem. The same method is used when passing bridge piers, and compared to limited width piers, width of bridge piers is much wider, making it easier to cross.
However, there are bike piers and dual carriageways. If it is a bridge abutment that bikes pass over, everyone should pay attention to stepping over and never drive straight over abutment when opposite vehicle passes bridge abutment. If it's a dual carriageway bridge abutment, just control speed of vehicle.
The editor here wants to remind everyone that no matter how experienced you are, you must slow down when passing limited width abutments and bridge abutments! If you blindly believe in your own strength and do not slow down at all when passing pier, it is easy to have intimate contact with pier, then gain outweighs gain.
