It’s not the most common thing for us streets But that’s precisely why it’s even more important to know how to behave when you encounter one of them. 57 accidents with 87 victims were recorded on winding roads on interstate roads, with two deaths and five seriously injured in just two years (from 2020 to 2022). That’s why it is General Directorate of Transport (DGT) I wanted to shed some more light and useful information on this Braided rails.
This means that there can be two types of maneuvers: entering and leaving the track.
How to maneuver on a braided track
When you turn onto the main road, behave in the same way as you would in a traditional speed lane, proceeding gradually and respecting the signage and the priority of people already on the main road.
In the event that the driver is within this lane and intends to continue in it, whether by looking for the next exit, he will have priority over those leaving the motorway/motorway, although he will give them the exit as far as possible Must facilitate possible by maintaining the maximum alertness at all times and at a speed appropriate to the signs and circumstances.
Who has priority if we proceed in parallel?
From the DGT driver training area it emerges that “in a crowded, braided lane, in addition to the strict application of the classic safety rules – observation, signaling, adjusting distances and speeds – we have to apply another, very important rule.” “like those mentioned above, such as B. Courtesy by facilitating, whenever possible, the maneuvers that other drivers are planning. In this way we will help ensure safety and fluidity in traffic and we will resolve conflict situations more quickly.”
Thus, the DGT explains that if two vehicles are traveling in parallel and both intend to move laterally to opposite sides, both must give way to each other. “So the driver exiting the highway takes their foot off the accelerator and positions themselves behind the driver, who in turn accelerates slightly to take the lead.”
