The average reaction time is around 1.5 seconds, which means that you will cover about 40m at 100 km/h before you start responding to a hazard.
What’s the average reaction time?
The two-stage braking technique improves braking effectiveness and reduces the risk of skidding, especially on wet or gravel roads. Two-stage braking is done by first setting up the brakes with light pressure on the pedal and then gradually applying the necessary braking pressure.
Are there any advantages of two-stage braking?
In bad conditions, the stop
What's the approximate stopping distance when driving 100 km/h on a dry road?
The stopping distance is the total distance it takes for your vehicle to come to a complete stop from the moment you spot a hazard, i.e. the distance you travel while reacting and the distance you travel while braking.
Which statement is true regarding the stopping distance?
Speed makes a huge difference in your ability to stop in time and a significant difference to your chance of being involved in a crash. Doubling the speed will increase braking distance by 4 times and reaction distance by 2 times.
Doubling the speed will do which of the following?
Think of reaction distance as the distance your vehicle has travelled while you react. At 100 km/h, you travel 27.8 m/s, which means that you travel roughly 40m during the 1.5 seconds that it takes you to react. This example shows the importance of kee
