Rent a car in Moscow: poor visibility is not an obstacle to traffic

The rainy off-season is rapidly approaching, when rains, fogs, snowfalls and wind will dominate, and also light days will be shorter and driving visibility will deteriorate. If you got behind the wheel (for example, you use car rental in Moscow), you should be very careful. Let's see what kind of visibility happens and what is the difference.

The traffic rules have clear definitions of the following concepts of visibility:

• Inadequate;

• Limited.

And these are completely different phenomena. Lack of visibility arises due to such natural reasons, for example:

• Twilight;

• Rain;

• Snowfall;

• Fog. 

Again, forest fires with dense smoke or the scorching sun can create poor visibility. Visibility less than three hundred meters will be considered insufficient.

In contrast to insufficient limited visibility is considered for other reasons:

•A sharp turn of the road;

• Pile of any objects (buildings, plants).

In this situation, visibility is less than a hundred meters. Such difficulties are of a short nature and end as soon as the obstacle is passed. But insufficient visibility can last an indefinitely long time, and sometimes it happens that the driver can be completely disoriented (for example, in heavy rain or fog), and then an emergency stop may be required with the emergency light turned on.

What should a driver do in poor visibility conditions on the road?

According to the traffice rules, the driver must turn on the headlights (either the dipped beam or the main beam, based on the situation), as well turn on the foglights. If it is obvious that a dangerous situation has been created for other drivers, an alarm is used to warn others.

The speed in conditions of poor visibility should be reduced, and the distance from other vehicles should also be maintained, since they can begin emergency braking, and you need to have time to react properly.

Car rental in Moscow is available everywhere, but we must remember that although the car does not belong to you, you should drive carefully, observing all the rules.
