Transcript of Drivers Education Ch 13

Be a smart driver. Always remember you
must have a place to swerve. The decision
to swerve must be made quickly taking into
account your speed, available space, possible
pedestrians, turning vehicles, etc.
This is a nice picture of where to look and it is important that you
know this information but, in reality when a hood flies up at highway
speed, it could smash into the windshield shattering the glass severely
restricting your visibility. You may need to put your head out the
driver’s door window to look ahead and also to watch the center line
of the roadway. Putting your head out the window brings it’s own set
of problems with it such as eyeglasses blowing off in the wind, etc.

Good Samaritan Law:
Legal protection to people who give reasonable assistance to those who are injured, ill, in peril, or otherwise incapacitated. The protection is intended to reduce bystanders' hesitation to assist, for fear of being sued or prosecuted for unintentional injury or wrongful death.
What to do After an Accident
Total brake failure rarely happens.
When it does follow these steps –
Pump brake pedal
Downshift to a lower gear
Apply the parking brake
Search for an open zone. Steer. As a last resort rub the wheels against a curb to reduce speed. If a collision is unavoidable steer for a sideswipe rather than a head-on collision.
Total Brake Failure
Proper maintenance can prevent most vehicle malfunctions
When your vehicle gives you warning signs make the necessary repairs
Vehicle Malfunctions
13.1 Vehicle Malfunctions 13.2 Driver Errors
13.3 Roadway Hazards 13.4 Collisions
Turn off the air and turn on the heater.
Shift to neutral at stops and accelerate slowly.
If temperature light is on and stays on, pull over and turn off the car.
Do not add fluid until engine is cooled off.
Engine Overheating
Shift to neutral
Begin moving out of traffic to nearest shoulder
Try to restart the engine while you are moving. If car starts, put in gear and proceed. If car does not start, move to the shoulder. Steering will be harder when power is lost by engine failure.
If car still does not start, turn on hazard flashers. Go for help.
Engine Failure
You have made the mixture to fuel rich and must balance it with more air.
Push accelerator all the way to the floor and attempt to restart the engine.
Take care not to run the battery down.
Flooded Engine
Changing a Tire
Tire Failure
Stuck Accelerator
Try to jar accelerator free
Apply brakes
Choose an escape path that leads to an open zone off the road way. Continue braking
If steering into a sharp curve or turn, shift to neutral .
Follow escape path off the roadway
Turn off ignition once off the roadway
Never reach down with your hand to lift the pedal while driving
