Three things you want to be conscious of in order to drive safely in a large car.

Panamera is big

Panamera is big anyway. Compared to the size of a mini car, I am surprised to see if it is so different.

〘New PanameraWidth: 1,937 mm, Total length: 5,049 mm
Mini carWidth: 1,480 mm or less, total length: 3,400 mm or less

In other words, Panamera is 50 cm wider than mini-car, its length is 1.5 m longer. What a big body.

As a matter of course, it is difficult for me to keep track of it, so I always get stuck when I pass the oncoming car. And I have sometimes hurt such Panamera.

When I went back home in Panamera. I got a little behind at my parents parking lot. Despite having a sensor that tells us what obstacle I thought, I could not respond to it.

It was a shock to the extent that the sense of the danger of a death. Since then, when driving a large car, I began to notice the following things.

Three laws in me.

① I will never pass a narrow road

Even if it is a narrow road, there are many roads that can actually pass by Panamera's car width. With regard to passing each other, it is possible if we wait in front of us or have the other party go first. Even though it does not go through. Even though I'm in a hurry, I decide to go around a long way and go out on a wide road.

② Do not go to convenience stores or supermarkets in a narrow parking lot

The nearest supermarket parking lot in the neighborhood is narrow. Although it is said that it is narrow, it is not stopped, supermarket is cheap and it is very handy, but if you go with Panamera and if you do not like it something you do not want to go absolutely. Regarding convenience stores as well, even if one parking lot is available, it never goes into the place where I felt "this is narrow ..." by intuition.

③ Exit home with more time than 30 minutes

"If you can not make it in time for meeting ...", you will have to go through narrow roads and loopholes. Then the possibility of hitting Panamera will also rise. So I am trying to leave home for over 30 minutes on time.

If it takes one hour on Google Maps it will take 1.5 hours, if it takes one and a half hours it will take 2 hours. I used to go from my home to Yonago in Tottori prefecture, but I left home for an hour, considering the crowdedness of the street and any chance. However, because it was rather vacant,

I arrived at least two hours faster than planned(Have you skipped a lot?)

But, that's fine with that. I could not make it in time, rushed, it was much better than risking Panamera. In other words, what is important for safe driving with a large car,

Not to hone driving skills to pass any road, not to go to places where there is risk in the first place

I think that. If we do not approach risks, risks will not come from over there.

Those who read this blog"It takes time, we can not turn around,I do not feel comfortable going to supermarkets and convenience stores,What a buggy car it is. "Perhaps it seems to be thought that Panamera is a wonderful place to make it think that it is a worthwhile car that surpasses these troublesome aspects even for me who is clattering in work for domestic work for childcare.

    Mina, the content of the article almost agree.
    Since the front car was a compact car, there was no problem on the narrow road, but now my favorite car got wider 11 cm, so the narrow road will not go.
    I definitely do not want to hit it, I do not want to be hit.
    From now on I will take care of you ^ ^

    > I do not want to hit it absolutely, I do not want to be honored.
