  • If you are approaching a traffic jam or a crash turn your warning lights on and brake as smooth as possible. Then the traffic behind you can react appropriately. If you see that he noticed the situation you may turn off your warning lights.

 

Beware with this as it is an illegal action in some countries. Warning lights are only for fully stopped vehicles. This could mislead to accidents on the night and/or with fog.

As far as I know there isn't a single country that prohibits using your WARNING lights to WARN other drivers about a upcoming dangerous situation. That is the literal function of those lights.

If there is a country where this is illegal, please provide a source.

If you need any help with the video (another trucker so you don't need to rely on random passer-bys) just give me a holler on Steam, name's the same as on the forum.

^ If an oncoming truck has his highbeams on, i turn on mine, and ~75% of them turn it off, so i turn it off too. I don't turn on my highbeam if there is a truck in front of me, to not distract him

I'm sorry, i didn't read the full sentence. Still the use of warning lights in my country is restricted to fully stopped vehicles, announce you will completely stop, and when you will perform an irregular action, like parking in reverse.

 

Driving with your warning lights in the fog is forbidden as it means that you are motionless. You could use it to warn that you will get into a fog bank if and only if its a light one but you have to turn it off intermediately.

Another thing that might be important on rules of the street, regarding motorway exits:

I0M9qEc.jpg

 

Short story for the reason I made this is that I experienced many drivers driving over those "blocked spaces" like normal lanes and causing jams/damage and people switching lanes too late before an exit.

 

I kept the language simple. If the mentioned objects don't fit with the orginal terms, you are allowed to correct me, because I don't know their names in English either.

 

EDIT2: And something on road/line markers:

Please send in corrections (attempts) as pm

you made a little misstake or better to say you forget a little something, when a roadsign indicate 60 its not the speed limitation for trucks but only for "cars" if I were you i would add this in big RED letters somewhere.

Speeding on country roads isn't as dangerous as one may think if you know what you're doing and when to slow down. I can agree with the rest of this.

I think there should be a video tutorial of this when you start a game, and it must be not skipable, so some scholars might get something from it.
