How to Improve Your Highway Safety? With Installed Devices for Drivers’ Anticipation!
Are you capable of full-fledged anticipation behind the driving wheel? Would you appeal to the National Highway Authority or up to the Ministry of Communications, should you know the safety benefits of drivers' anticipation stimulating devices, were they incorporated in the highway?
Despite their precaution effect, many have not yet been applied, whilst yearly crashes of motor vehicles on the highway record disturbing cumulation, hand in hand with increasing car density, vignette purchase, and highway infrastructure.
Apart from less strain and perils on the highway, wouldn't you consider visual precaution safety measurements a pleasant payoff for the vignette charges and for the levied road tax?
What anticipation enhancers have not yet been inducted, to diminish the black statistics and save passengers from unnecessary accidents on the highway?
With the aim to shorten the driving distance, save our time and tire-casings, we simply enter the promising highway, having paid for the highway sticker before. This, in the least, depicts the highway traffic situation in the Czech Republic. Until you pass through the exit you are bound to participate in every matter on the highway, ever more fatal to involved drivers. Why shall we consider anticipation enhancing facilities neglected, yet relevant highway precaution measurements?
HIGHWAY SAFETY DEFICIENCIES TODAY
Not only the rapidly growing number of vehicle owners but the striking exponential curve of car accidents on the highway point at the room for urgent remedy.
Right in the drivers' school, we were introduced the worth of safety facilities, such as seatbelts, child safety seats or airbags, to suppress the 'post-accident' consequences. Nowadays, in the US in the least, for newly manufactured cars deems compulsory that they are equipped with Electronic Stability Control. Nevertheless, these all have one common denominator, to mitigate the calamity once it already occurred! Hence, next in consideration come prevention measurements: built-in roads, in developed vehicles and in the neural-motor 'processor' in our head.
To a great extent, the reins of prevention lie in our own hands. Yet even if we
- observe frequent maintenance inspection,
- take to notion weather forecast and broadcasted road situation,
- update our GPS navigations for fresh information on nearby roadworks, accident or congestion, as well as suggestion of most convenient alternative by-pass,
- turn on a built-in navigation sound,
- use hands-free voice calls,
- sip an energy drink,
- put on lenses or dioptric glasses,
- turn down the radio,
- follow the speed limit,
- and take frequent breaks from driving,
there still lies the risk that we cause an accident or become its victims. Let alone that not all the highways comprise modernized and unified digital traffic signs and traffic announcements.
Long deserted sections become fatal for long-distance drivers. Sharp and long curves can easily “derail” tired eyes. Fresh car congestion presumes chain accidents, etc.
CAR ACCIDENTS CALL FOR PREVENTION APPROACH
How does driver’s constant anticipation guarantee a prompt inversion of the fatal aftermath? Such an awake-and-aware driver enhances chances of safe travel for the whole highway. However, men and women of multitasking, diverse skills, stress and information era, do naturally cease on their level of attention. Hence external stimulators are a “must” to revive drivers’ anticipation qualities.
SOLUTIONS TO ENHANCE DRIVERS' ANTICIPATION
Among such stimulators belong human sense “awakers”. To name a few:
- Sound devices marking coming exits
Road exits stretch throughout the highway in relatively frequent distance, to keep a long-distance driver awake by an 'undisturbing', yet noticable sound inside the car, interrupting all surrounding sounds, be it a radio, a phone, or roadworks. Outran by large and slow trucks, drivers are at risk of missing their 'escape path' or, on the other hand, crashing an overlooked inbound vehicle.
- Night vision devices marking sharp and long curves
These we usually encounter in close vicinity to roadworks or the forementioned road accidents. Some motorways already apply these warning systems in heavily critical sections. Only that driver's eyesight experiences the toughest strain out of all driver's senses during the daylight and far more with the nightfall, when the whole world turns into neon-light 'Las Vegas' and lots of signs, even the present-day flashlights, become blurried.
This suggests the need for gradual intensity and diversification of illuminators, both ahead of and in the risky area, including downlight street lamps. Take, for example, the relief imported by spatially illuminated petrol pumps at night. Any daylight simulation deems much more promissing then blinking flashlight, affecting the vision for next several minutes. After all, long distance driving, likewise working on a computer, spoils the sight by artificial light and lack of winking!
- Notification of traffic jam with the help of a flashing indicator on a sideway guard stone
Only main, usually capital circuits are very particular about these signalising means. Hence, not so much an innovative idea, yet still largerly absent and not so well-timed. Good timing surely implies that the driver is warned well before entering the desired slip road. For that, digital boards ahead of afflicted slip roads and internationally unified flashing indicators on sideway stones ahead of slip roads shall not be of null value.
Last, not least effective would be a proven and largely praised free navigation application Waze. In that, it is the drivers themselves who reciprocally update the status of bypassed critical highway section in an instant. An obvious plus of Waze app is that it works cross borders and on, as well as, outside the highways.
AS A RESULT, PREVENTION AND SAFETY EXECUTION
Argued preference for prevention to achieve significantly senseful safety on a highway depicts merely one stone of the pavement to execution. By suggested anticipation enhancers as the means of prevention, this execution shall be embraced as feasible.
Now comes questioning the drivers and appealing to the Ministry of Communications. Would not healthy and external anticipation stimulators guarantee (1) significantly safer drive, (2) more peace behind the wheel, (3) friendlier conditions for exhausted, visually weakened, fresh, elder or medically restored drivers? (4) Would this not guarantee proven care to taxpayers and (5) proven notion of drivers’ comfort and drivers' safety in construction drafts when applying for construction grants and permission for conduct?
Natural disasters, collisions with perplexed drivers or mechanical defects can hardly be prevented by anything different than full concentration and common sense. Hence, paying the road tax, toll and highway vignette, don't we deserve quality service with priority to our safety and well-being?
Whichever safety step you take, if not all for your best, make always sure that your mobile battery is loaded before you set off on the road. Into the bargain, free real-time and, most importantly, “widespread” community-based traffic and navigation application Waze waits for your discovery, to secure your drive even outside the highway traffic!
It is recommended that you should replace the tyres on your car within 10 years of manufacture, the car battery after about three years and spark plugs after 30,000 miles. But when to change your car mats isn't quite as straightforward.
Our traditional gasoline-powered cars have always ran the automobile industry but it may not be the case for long. As new and stricter efficiency standards are being demanded to better combat climate change, we are finally seeing the rise of electric vehicles.
It seems like everyday we are seeing major automakers, as well as major companies, reveal their prototypes and models of new electric and self-driving vehicles. Companies such as Tesla, Nissan, Google, Uber and Amazon are said to be leading the charge but the hunt is on for everyone.
Do you have a junk vehicle that is currently taking up important and valuable space on your property? Is it an embarrassment? You won’t be able to sell it via the normal avenues. In fact, you would have trouble giving it away. But there is a way to get rid of it and get some cash in the process.
It is not wise to leave an old and broken down automobile in your garage or on your driveway, when you have the opportunity to get some cash out of it. Car removal services, sometimes known as cash for car companies, are fast growing in popularity as a means to get rid of junk cars.
If your old car has started showing age, it might be not working the way it should be. At that point, the first thing that you may think of is replacing some components of your vehicle. However, the problem that you may face is paying large dollars for car parts.
If you own a vehicle, getting it insured is a must. In fact, some jurisdictions have made it compulsory for car-owners to get their vehicles insured or they may be penalized. Nevertheless, getting it insured has its own benefits. You will glad to have it after an accident.
When you have a vehicle that is broken down and consuming a considerable space on your property. It is a totally different situation from having one that is not in use but still running properly. While it could be easy to sell a working vehicle, but the same cannot be said for one that is scrapped or broken-down.
