Nowadays, as the road quality gets better, when we go on a long-distance road trip, we usually get to drive on high quality highways which are well-paved and well-maintained. These highways provide comprehensive support. Driving on these high quality roads, it is most important to avoid driving fatigue. Although highways are not demanding on performance, you should try to take a break every two hours. Find a servicing shop and alight from the car to stretch your legs. It only takes a few minutes to solve the problem.

In addition, if you have many passengers inside the car, you should use the air conditioner's external circulation mode to improve air quality. As high-speed driving creates more noise, most drivers keep the windows closed. Setting your air conditioning mode on internal circulation for a long time will result in a lack of fresh air and oxygen depletion. This is even more obvious when the car is full of passengers.

Damaged road

In contrast to the highway, most national and provincial roads can be very challenging. It is because they are not well-maintained and are frequently used by heavy trucks. Here is Dr. Mobil's advice for driving on roads with holes and unpaved surfaces: Firstly, you need to prevent the bottom of the car from touching the road; Secondly, the driving method is also particularly important and you need to be able to see far ahead to know the road conditions in advance and reduce speed and bypass obstacles decisively.

When driving on poor quality roads, it is important to prevent dust pollution. You should close windows and use the air conditioner's internal circulation mode to prevent dust from entering the car and affecting the health of the passengers. If you need better ventilation, you can open the sunroof slightly if there is no car in front. Its special location and way of opening can help to reduce the amount of dust getting into the car.

When driving on mountain roads, the most important thing is to not violate the lane. This is not nonsense. When driving on the mountains, sometimes you can go off-lane unknowingly or out of fear of not being able to make the turn, or out of laziness to step on brake. This is actually very dangerous. It is easy to overlook a car coming from the opposite direction and the potential dangers due to limited vision while driving on mountains. Violating the lane can easily lead to major accidents.

To all seasoned drivers, please assess yourself under these conditions. Do you still think that you have good driving skills? Remembering these driving tips will help you to realize your dreams of ruling the roads both in and out of the city!
