Correct safe lane change method:
Observe and judge the traffic conditions behind and on the side of the vehicle through the rearview mirror, and confirm whether there is a safe distance in the lane to be driven in. If it is not safe, you need to wait patiently. If it is safe, turn on the turn signal and observe whether there is any vehicle overtaking on both sides of the road. Turn smoothly and drive to the required lane without hindering the normal driving of other vehicles in the lane. Turn off the turn signal in time after the end of the lane change.
At the same time, each lane change can only be changed to the adjacent lane. If it is necessary to change to a lane other than the adjacent lane, it should first change to the adjacent lane, after driving for a section, then change to another lane. When changing lanes at intersections, observe road traffic signs and road markings in advance, select driving lanes correctly, and enter the guide lane before entering the solid line area.
In addition, when changing lanes, avoid sudden sharp turning of steering wheel into adjacent lanes, and prevent collision with normal driving vehicles or sideslip of their own vehicles. When changing the lane to the left or right, it should not be too slow. Generally, the lane should be changed at a distance of 50m.
