Principles for safely backing up a car

For drivers who are new to driving, backing up a car really brings them fear. Because they often confuse steering operations and cannot estimate the distance behind the vehicle. Understanding those concerns, CarOn will give you instructions on how to safely reverse your car.

In what cases should you reverse the car?

Reversing is an indispensable operation for every driver. Due to not being able to see directly behind as well as having many blind spots, traffic accidents can easily occur. There are many situations that require the driver to reverse, for example:

+ Back up when parking on a straight road, keeping the car parallel to the sidewalk

+ Park your car in reverse between two cars behind you, this is a common case if you park your car in a public place. Parking like this is quite difficult and requires a lot of practice to avoid collisions between two cars.

Problems when backing up

For new drivers who are not familiar with parking and stopping, this operation is quite difficult, requires the driver to have a comprehensive vision, adjust the speed appropriately and is full of dangers. When reversing, drivers cannot see behind them. If they look through the rearview mirror, there will be many blind spots that will cause incorrect reversing and collisions with vehicles and objects behind. In addition, to reverse the car, you must operate all 3 pedals: accelerator – clutch – brake, so the driver is easily confused and the car often stalls.

Reversing unsafely can cause collisions and scratches on the vehicle

Basic principles of reversing cars

Rule number 1: Always drive slowly when backing up

Whether you have many years of driving experience or are a new driver, backing up is a difficult problem and needs to be practiced many times to become proficient. When backing up to see the rear clearly, you should drive slowly to observe. After determining that you can reverse, move slowly. Driving slowly helps you promptly detect problems or obstacles behind the vehicle and handle them promptly.

In a transmission, reverse gear is always the strongest gear. At the same level of clutch release and accelerator pedal in manual transmission vehicles or brake release level in automatic transmission vehicles, reverse gear always runs faster than first gear. When reversing, you should keep your foot on the brake so that if there is an abnormality, you can step on the brake quickly because the reverse gear in an automatic car is always the strongest gear.

Rule number 2: Remember to use rearview mirrors

When reversing, from the driver’s position, there will be many points behind the car that you cannot fully observe. These spots are called blind spots. Therefore, to overcome and minimize blind spots, you need to use rearview mirrors properly and effectively.

When reversing the car, the rearview mirror plays an extremely important role. You cannot always look back, so observing the points behind the car through the rearview mirror is very necessary. In addition, when turning around, there are many blind spots that you cannot see, which can also be dangerous if there is another vehicle in front of you. The space observed with a mirror will be wider and more comprehensive.

Therefore, when backing up, you should adjust the rearview mirror to the correct position, so that the driver can clearly see the rear of the car.

In addition, to ensure greater safety, you can equip other reversing devices such as reversing sensors, reversing cameras, dash cameras, 360 cameras… These are all modern devices that help you reverse your car. Fast and safe, especially suitable for new drivers..

Principle number 3: Move forward, stick to your back, move back, stick to your stomach

This is a familiar mantra that drivers always remember. This principle is quite simple but extremely useful.

When driving in, you must open the corner wide (ie stick to your back) so that the left-hand side of the tail swings to the side (belly side). This will not cause you to collide with obstacles before you can drive in.

On the contrary, when you park the car, you must stick close to the side that turns the steering wheel (ie the abdomen) to be able to get the car out of the parking space. Then the outside front of the car (on the belly side) will not be hit by obstacles; If the belly side is enough, when backing up, the car will be farther away from obstacles on that side.

Principle number 4: Left is right, right is left

This is a basic thing that everyone has heard about when learning to drive. It applies not only when reversing but also in any driving operation. Due to inertia, many people often confuse left and right when reversing. Therefore, drivers must always remember the rule “left is right, right is left”, when turning the steering wheel to the right, the car will move back to the left and vice versa.

Notes when backing up

Follow the rules when backing up

The above principles when reversing are a combination of experiences to help you reverse as safely and smoothly as possible. However, whether or not backing up is perfect still depends on your steering wheel. By following these principles, your skills will improve and backing up will no longer be scary.

Turn on the warning lights and put the gear into reverse

Remember, the first thing when backing up is to turn on the warning lights. Because when backing up, your limited visibility will make it difficult to see other vehicles that are also moving. Note, during the process of reversing the vehicle, whether it is an automatic transmission vehicle or a manual transmission vehicle, drivers must put their foot on the brake pedal to be able to stop the vehicle when encountering an obstacle or problem, to avoid accidentally stepping on it. car accelerator pedal.

Adjust the car mirror

Adjusting the car mirrors will help expand the driver’s rear view, making the vision more reasonable while backing up. Even for experienced drivers, this is very necessary. Having a comprehensive view will help the driver calculate and estimate a reasonable distance so that backing up does not cause any collisions. , the most precise move.

Some other notes

  • If practicing reversing, start practicing reversing in an open place without many obstacles, gradually narrowing the parking space.
  • When the car is stopped, depending on the situation, we can leave the gear lever in position D or N
  • Reversing is a technique that requires practicing the habit of observing and estimating distances well. To do this, it is necessary to focus on 6 important locations through the mirror or reverse camera
  • When reversing, it is necessary to combine a number of operations such as how to put the car in gear, how to use the brake, how to use the clutch, and how to turn the steering wheel.

Above is all the useful information that CarOn has compiled and compiled about safely reversing cars. Hope the above information will be helpful to readers.
