Driving uphill – and personal injury lawyers in Oundle
Driving uphill is a manoeuvre that even the most seasoned driver can find difficult from time to time. It is easy to stall the car when you are driving uphill as not putting enough pressure on the accelerator will leave the car without enough power to make it up the hill.
However, you also don’t want to put too much power into the car as you don’t want to speed or lose control of the car either. Here are some tips for driving safely uphill.
- Know how best to get power from your car. You need to get to know your car well before you can handle certain moves in it. Every car is different so you cannot assume that something which gave one car more power will necessarily work on another.
- Speed up and hit third gear as you approach the incline. To get enough power to head up the incline you will need to speed up a little.
- Once the car starts to slow down move up to second gear. This will make it easier for the car to continue to climb once you are on the incline. You do not need to keep going fast to reach the top of the hill, as moving into second gear will help this along.
- If you feel it is necessary, switch down to first gear. The key to getting up the hill easily is to switch into first gear when you feel that the car is struggling, but to move back into second gear once you have gone a little way and the car is coasting easily up the hill.
