Road Scenerios

Although we are not novice drivers, we all have doubts at certain times if we have a preference or not.The most common is that common sense will help us solve most situations. Although there are always drivers that some of these doubts make them offenses or, worse, in a traffic accident. We show some of the most frequent cases of used cars for you to avoid negligence that may become a bigger problem. Of course driving in different countries you need to be aware of different rules and scenarios that you may come against. driving cars in Northern Ireland is completely different to driving in the Us. Apart from the main difference of using the different sides of the road, there is also other factors, like being able to turn right on a red light in the Us where as you are not allowed to do this  in the UK or Ireland

Multi-lane roundabout


Just think of the roundabout as a two-lane highway and a way out of the vehicle you want to access the left lane, the priority is obviously the one on the right wing. The same rule be followed in the roundabouts with more than two lanes: the left one always has to give way to the right.

Rail input and output interlaced


There are some lanes on certain roads, such as the M-40 in Madrid, where some lanes are used to join the main road or to leave it . It is customary that when one wants to leave, find another who wants to join. Typically in such cases the person who wants to join accelerate and decelerate want to leave. The preference is the same for both , but this is where common sense says that you can lift off the throttle and yield step incorporated.

Narrow sections

In some narrow stretches of road where there is room for two vehicles traveling in opposite directions and there is no sign indicating who has the preference, the code says it will have a preference between the first or the one with the most difficulty maneuvering : trucks first, followed by passenger cars and motorcycles. However, if given station on a road with steep, preference will always be the vehicle that is ascending .


Sometimes when making a turn we run into pedestrians crossing through an area with no pedestrian crossing. Although this often leads to anger the driver, the truth is that the pedestrian always has priority, although there is a zebra crossing . Especially if you ride by a roadside where there is not enabled a pedestrian area.

Also remember that pedestrians are falling or rising to a bus at a marked stop, take precedence if they are between the bus and the nearest pedestrian area. Organized processions, school rows or troops in training will also have priority.

Crossing in front


It is not uncommon reach a crossroads where you want to make a left turn and you find another oncoming car and intends to do the same turn or go straight and also both have a yield sign. Very easy: first you start the maneuver.

Via paved versus unpaved road

It is usual that has intersections with roads unpaved roads. There should be no doubt in such cases, but remember that under any concept always has the preference the car driving on the paved road .



It is interesting to know the rights and duties of cyclists and drivers on the road, to improve security. Acyclist always have preference when a car, to make a turn to the right or left, I find. The cyclists riding in a group take precedence in a crossing when the first initiated the maneuver or in the case of a roundabout, the first entered.


Quick guide to traveling with cats and not die trying


In general, cats prefer not to travel. Most cats do not like a change of scenery and the car stresses them. Especially when they have to go inside the carrier or cage. We already told you the tricks to travel with dogs , so today we bring you a practical guide to basic recommendations if you have to make a long trip with cats . It is not easy, but following these tips will have no problem.

  1. The cat in the carrier

Although this detail should be met in general, still people carrying their pets loose in the car. A cat champion at ease around the cabin, except that it is forbidden, can be dangerous, not only by sudden braking, but for any unexpected reaction likely to have the cat and we endanger the wheel. Therefore, always use a carrier.

Most veterinarians recommend agrees  rigid grids and kennels because they are safer. Regarding the placement of them, it is best to place the cat carrier on a seat , secured with seat belt, or else on the floor between the front and rear seats , so that the box is secure, but the animal can breathe without difficulty, away from the jets of air conditioning.

  1. Do you feel you are in a familiar place

The main problems usually have cats in a car are usually due to unfamiliarity with the vehicle .Spend many hours in a new place, unable to perform your daily routine, it can cause stress and anxiety in cats.

Therefore, the best thing is that you make a couple of previous trips , short, to begin to familiarize with the environment. In addition, we must accustom to use their carrier slowly. One thing I usually do is leave it open in the middle of the room during the weeks to become more familiar.

  1. It offers quiet

There is no worse combination than a long journey,  loud music and a cat on board. They are usually quiet animals, but with a slow adaptation to environment. Therefore, it should make it easy and avoid creating an atmosphere in which predominates the noise.



Play music with a rather low volume and tries to  prevent noise generated by the windows down. It is possible that the animal mew the beginning of the trip and even for much of the journey. Therefore, it is advisable to talk from time to time on a calm tone to calm and never get the carrier.

  1. For every two hours

Usually in long journeys should make stops to rest and stretch your legs. Some drivers skip these rules, which is not advisable and if we board a cat, because it is necessary to stop so you can  drink water and use your sandbox .

Yes, it is very important that the cat does not leave the car , so it can happen. Nor should leave him alone in the car because they can suffer a sudden temperature change, as they are very sensitive to these changes.

  1. Sedatives and pheromones for seasickness

Environment changes, sudden movements or sudden changes in temperature can cause seasickness felines.

One way that you can avoid this is to place the carrier on the ground , so that it cannot see out the window and reduce dizziness. If you still did not manage to reassure it, we can also supply you a mild sedative to calm down the animal, or even be sprayed  by synthetic pheromones cat inside the car , half an hour before starting the journey. Both pheromones as tranquilizers, you can get at any vet .

  1. Food three hours before departure

Another aspect to bear in mind is that as far as possible, should not alter the timing of meals of our pet. So try that stops matching your usual eating schedule. Also, I feed him three hours before the trip begins to reduce their sense of discomfort and dizziness.


Seven tips for driving safely in the mud


Of course it is always advisable to drive on paved roads on holiday but sometimes it is necessary to drive on a dirt road, because of the rain that has become a quagmire. It’s easy to get caught or for your vehicle to be damaged.

Drive slowly . You are less likely to slip if you take the easy way. Move with low gears to better control the situation.

Never hasten thoroughly . All you get is that the wheels spin faster and deeper grooves are formed. Result, mud sticks in the wheels faster and become more difficult to make any movement.

Undoubtedly, the better to move in the mud is the all-wheel drive . Then there are those who prefer front-wheel drive and the weight of the engine is on the drive, it is best to orient the wheels to come out in the right direction and is more effective pull to push. If you have a vehicle with rear-wheel drive , it should load the trunk so that there is more weight on the rear axle that moves the car. Those who prefer this drive say it is better to leave when you get stuck, because based countersteer from one place to another is easy for the car ended up getting traction in the rear wheels off the hook (but you leave enough tires in the operation.

Escape from the grooves and ruts . Look for more compact to fit your tires areas, high areas of the road. The grooves are more humid, and so are more muddy and slippery.

Try to step on the brakes slightly . In general, it is best to maneuver around with the pedals. If you go down, you go to places flatter or simply move slowly. Do not step on the brake to slow down, play with the gears.

If you get stuck in the mud , it is best to calm down. Before you do anything, get out of the vehicle. Look at the lay of the land to see what the easiest way to get out. Normally do a flat out: Take stones, small trunks, or gravel back and make a way to get the tires remain as close to the “path” as (Focus on the rear wheels possible if you have rear-wheel drive ). But slowly salt (do not rush a lot, remember the first rule), moving the car very slowly forward. Move the steering wheel slowly until the tires grip the ground. You might not go out to the first and have to go changing the arrangement of the objects you’ve placed in the drive wheels. Do not despair, you’ll end up dating.Patience.

Always carry a mobile phone in the car. As a last resort, you can always call and ask for help.
