Congestion is forcing drivers to run stop and go. Instead, wait until the vehicle in front is a bit much, you just start walking. By doing so, the car protected from conditions 'half-coupling' too often. Especially on the road uphill. Always use the handbrake to hold the car movement.
Position the transmission neutral when stopped long
In the long stop in congestion conditions, up more than 30 seconds, position the gear into neutral, unless required quick reactions. In the car manual transmission, the clutch pedal is released from the grind of course very dangerous. While in a car with automatic transmission, use the D position for too long when stopped, can increase fuel consumption.
To change lanes, always use a turn signal. If not given way, do not be pushy. Wait until the driver in the back gave way. Because, the time difference between the force of movement and not, not too significant. Instead, the risk is very much higher. It should also be applied when a bypass to turn or U-turn.
Monitor indicator periodically
In the middle of the afternoon congestion, frequent engine overheated. By monitoring the indicator on the instrument panel periodically, you can determine the condition of the engine. In addition to temperature, see also the oil light indicator.
