Therefore, off peak travel (early / delayed) is a good way to avoid congestion.

According to the travel experience of time finance and economics, taking the self driving behavior in Guangdong Province on September 29 as an example, although the traffic volume of Guanghe, Jinan Guangzhou and Shantou Zhanjiang Expressway (West to East) has increased significantly, there is no obvious congestion, and the overall road condition is relatively smooth.

However, as the holidays approach, congestion is expected to be inevitable on some popular roads during peak periods. For self driving travel, it is more important to keep peace of mind and safe travel in addition to choosing staggered peak travel as far as possible.

Tips for self driving

1. Before traveling, the vehicle condition shall be inspected in detail, including various oil, brake pads, tires and tire pressure (the tire pressure recommended by the manufacturer is posted at the door frame of the drivers seat / CO drivers seat for most models), whether the tire wear reaches the wear mark, whether the tire wall is damaged, etc. the vehicle with spare tire should check the spare tire status.

2. At high speed, adjust the interior rearview mirror to a state where the rear road conditions can be observed. In case of traffic jam on the highway ahead, pay close attention to the traffic flow behind and try to avoid being in the same lane with the large trucks behind.

3. Dont take chances to illegally occupy the emergency lane. At present, traffic police have begun to accept reports from ordinary citizens mobile phones and tachograph video evidence. Start with yourself and put an end to bad driving habits that are not beneficial to others.

6. If there are three or more illegal vehicles in total, they must be dealt with as far as possible before the national day trip, otherwise they will be detained if they encounter traffic police patrol.

7. If the owner of etc equipment is equipped, please check the relevant equipment and card in advance to ensure smooth passage.

Finally, as the weather turns cool, there is still a risk of a second round of outbreak of Xinguan epidemic, which is still in the critical period of domestic epidemic prevention and control. It is still necessary to wear good masks, wash hands frequently and pay attention to personal protection when traveling.
