Tips How To Driving Safely And Efficiently
1) Check Out Car Parts
Before using check the condition of the car around the body, make sure everything is in good condition and roadworthy.
Check the air pressure and condition of tires (including spare tires) at least once a week before the car is used. Check the air pressure using Presure Tire Gauge, and make sure the pressure in accordance with the standards.
To check the thickness of the tire, use the Trade Wear Indicator, which formed as a triangular mark on the tire wall and a bulge in the tire treads.
If the development has been flat tire with the bulge, then replace your tires immediately.
Make a check engine room at least once a week on the engine oil, brake oil, radiator water and battery water. Make sure the height of the oil or water below the maximum. Further checks are also rubber-rubber hoses and fan belt. Make sure all are still pliable and no cracks.
2) Checking In Car
When entering the car cabin important thing to check is the condition of rubber clutch pedal, brake and gas. Everything must be installed properly and not thin.
Then, check your car's hand brake as well, especially the lever and penguncinya. Everything must be in condition and functioning properly.
3) Sitting Position
There are 3 important things that will we get if we are correct sitting position, namely:
Easy to communicate with other riders and monitor the situation outside the car.
Not easily tired and always alert even if driving long distances.
Easy to feel the early symptoms when the car starts to lose balance. So that it can be anticipated.
To get the proper sitting position follow the procedures in the event:
Always use seat belts as a primary safety protective equipment. Make sure the sound of CLICK!, When installing it.
The use of proper seat belt, must pass through the shoulder and hip bones. Use the height of the seat belt to sit right.
Adjust the distance of your chair so you easily operate the gas pedal, brake and clutch.
The position of chair should be comfortable, not too tall but not too gentle.
Distance Body Steering
Distance ideal body with a steering wheel that is about 25cm. How to measure it, put both your wrists at 12. Then set the back of the chair.
Retaining Position Head
Place the back of the head parallel to the height of the head.
Adjust the height of the steering to feel comfortable to drive.
Once seated comfortably, check the following:
Checking Instruments Dashboard
Check all indicators on the dashboard when the key in the ON position. For vehicles equipped with ABS and SRS airbag, make sure that when turning the car off the indicator.
Spion Glass settings
Set all the position of the rearview mirror so that makes it easy to monitor the situation outside the car.
Make sure all lights work properly.
4) Sports Steering
The position of the hands of the most appropriate basis while driving the left hand at 9 o'clock position and right hand at 3 o'clock position. Position your thumb should be vertical to the steering wheel and steering wheel does not go into the circle.
Avoid the habit of driving with one hand, palm of the hand and driving with your fingers into the wheel rim. Besides easy to lose control when driving a car, you are also in danger of injury or even death.
There are 2 techniques are appropriate if the steering is as follows:
If the steering is a technique that most basic and safe to use in various situations, both driving at low speed or high.
This technique can be used at low speeds but requires a fairly large turning radius, such as when parking or turning.
5) Braking Technique
One of the features associated with the braking technique is Anti Lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA). ABS function for tires are not locked during braking.
How hard tread brake pedal as he directed cars to a safer place. Function EBD distributes braking power to each wheel based on vehicle load. This mechanism works with the ABS and is very useful when the brakes on road cornering.
In the meantime, BA is useful to increase braking power when brake suddenly. This mechanism works based on the speed of the brake pedal in an emergency. So with a little stamping but fast, the car can stop quickly.
When he was driving a car, need to pay attention to all road users or road conditions around, such as motorcycles, cars, signs, pedestrians or other important objects that can affect alertness while driving.
7) Blind Spot
Blind Spot is an area that is not seen directly by the rearview mirror, right or left. With these limitations, need to familiarize themselves to do that is by turns Shoulder check to the left or the right moment in the direction you turn.
8) Safe Following Distance
When driving, keep a safe distance ideal car with the car in front which is about 3 seconds. How:
Find a benchmark that is big enough and did not move along the road.
Then when another car in front across the benchmark, the count with the number '1000 and 1, 1000 and 2, 1000 and 3 '.
Make sure the car through the same benchmark at the end of the count. If it is correct, then you meet a safe distance is ideal.
9) Safe Stopping Distance
When stopped the car, make sure the car is sufficient distance so that it can see both rear tires the car in front. This is so easy when there conditions that force you must exit the vehicle queue.
For ease when parking, need to understand and use existing standards on cars.
Fuel Efficiency Tips When Driving:
• Make sure the engine always excellent condition.
• Keep the engine speed remains low.
• Avoid excessive acceleration and braking.
• Use with engine braking.
• tire air pressure is always normal.
• Use a pump that is credible and accurate.
Turn off the AC when not needed.
Benefits tachometer To Conserve Fuel
Tachometer or bookmark RPM rotation per minutes, certainly not just decorate the dashboard. But the benefit to drivers because it can be a guide to operating a car with frugal.
This is because through a tachometer, the driver will know when the right time to change the gear position. Also, run the vehicle on lap static accordance with the instructions of each manufacturer, can be more menghamat fuel consumption.
Proper replacement teeth done when the engine reaches maximum torque (maximum moment).
Note the technical data of cars and see information about Maximum torque (maximum torque). Manual book contains information about this data. Usually, written with units feet / lbs, feet-pounds, or Newton meters (Nm). Each machine has a different maximum torque. Typically, the rate of torque (moment) is always associated with a number of engine speed (RPM).
For example, technical data on the manual written book Maximum torque: 200 Nm/3.750 rpm. This means that the highest moment of 200 Nm occurs at the time of rotating machines as much as 3750 per minute.
In this example, means you should make the shift gear when the rpm shows the range of 3750 numbers.
Figures RPM on tachometer is also important to note not only when the change gear to a higher position. To streamline fuel consumption, while speeding down the road Keep the engine speed in the range of the maximum torque. Because, that's when fuel supply is in accordance with the output of machinery and manpower needed to drive the car.
Extend Vehicle Age
1. Avoid warming the engine are too long, if the average spin machine has run the vehicle.
2. Round cultivated machine do not be too low and not too high.
3. Avoid running the vehicle at high speed, try to run the vehicle with constant speed and do not mengkocok-whipped on the accelerator when not needed.
4. When driving do not put a foot on the clutch pedal
5. Keep your tire pressure according to vehicle / right.
6. For vehicles using Exhaust Brake, position the main switch to ON if you're driving.
7. Follow the maintenance of the existing maintenance schedule on pedomn book owners and book service.

3. Before running the vehicle, Heat engine first, do not run a vehicle with a sudden, do not hold acceleration and do not brake suddenly.
4. Do not work on the engine rev too high. We recommend that you labored to spin machine is always lower than 60% of maximum engine speed.
