Correct fit in the car

Correct fit in the car

Many drivers often make such a common mistake as landing incorrectly in a car seat while driving a car. Gradually, they reinforce this ineffective posture, which is contrary to safety rules and harms their own health. Therefore, proper seating is important for road safety, driving comfort and driving comfort.

Principles of proper seating in the car

Of course, ignoring the basic safety rules, the driver creates a great risk for his own health and the health of passengers, as well as other road users. If the driver takes the correct position of the body behind the wheel, he quickly responds to the traffic situation that has arisen. Also, during a long ride, the correct posture affects the support of the lumbar region in a comfortable state. It can ride comfortably without fatigue and back and neck pain.

If a person sits in a car seat uncomfortable and unsafe, he begins to feel tension in the body, fatigue and discomfort. If you stay in the wrong position for a long time, blood circulation is disturbed and a person cannot immediately respond to an emergency on the road.

The main principles that affect the correct fit in the car are:

  1. The most relaxed muscles of the body.
  2. The main load on the car seat.
  3. Correct back position.
  4. Comfortable distance between the steering wheel and the seat.
  5. Comfortable hand position while driving.
  6. Properly adjusted headrest and seat belt.

The basic rule of placing the body in the seat is the maximum relaxation of the muscles. The driver must choose a comfortable position and focus on driving. The maximum load should fall on the car seat. The driver's arms and legs should move as freely as possible. His back should be in contact in the lower neck, shoulder blades and lower back with the back of the chair.

It is also necessary to choose the appropriate distance between the steering wheel and the seat so that it is comfortable to press the pedals. Hands behind the wheel are recommended to bend a little.
The headrest of the seat is installed on the back of the head. Check that the back, neck and shoulders are in line at an angle of 120 degrees. The seat belt should run along the chest line. It should not be placed at the level of the throat. Between the chest and the belt, the palm should be freely inserted. This will relieve pressure on the chest in an emergency.

Impact of seating on driving safety

Let us consider in more detail the impact of landing on driving safety and describe the main points of the correct posture. For safe driving, the driver's back must be in contact with the seat. The weight of the hands should not be concentrated on the steering wheel. The main center of gravity of the body should be on the car seat. For a car with a manual transmission, you need to turn on the long-range gear with your right hand. For automation, you must enable parking. At this point, the left hand is placed on top of the steering wheel.

Hands must be fixed on the top of the steering wheel on the left and right. The fingers should be touching the inside of the steering wheel, especially the pinky and ring fingers. The left foot is fixed on the clutch, and the right foot on the brake. The right foot is constantly working, switching from the gas pedal to the brake. It is important not to take your heel off the floor.

Do not forget about the adjustment of the mirrors. They need to be adjusted so that the exterior reflects the road and the sky, the side mirrors - the tailgate handle, and the rear ones - the rear windows.

Impact of seating position on driving fatigue

From a medical point of view, incorrect posture affects the feeling of fatigue while riding. The very "driver" or any sitting posture, especially for a long time, is not very healthy for a person. But since it is impossible to drive a car while standing, a person must adapt and observe the most correct posture while driving. This minimizes the load on the spine and cervical region. Also, the correct posture will increase efficiency while driving, ensure normal blood circulation, so the back, neck and even legs will not become numb. In general, this will ensure an adequate response to emergencies on the road.

Car seat adjustments

Seat adjustment in the car depends on its class. The design of the car seat itself includes a base and an upper part. Movement is carried out along the guides. The seat height adjustment works by a mechanism that is fixed to the floor. Fixes the position of the ratchet mechanism. The positioners are similar in shape and are fixed on the side.

Many car models have additional adjustment of the pillow departure, the angle of its rise and the height of the lumbar support. Lumbar support looks like a roller on the back of the car seat.
