In addition to this, you should also consider the following:

 

·        Don’t try to Overtake until you’re free of dense traffic.

·        If you are moving slow, give way to others who has more speed.

·        Always give priority to speedy trucks since most of them would be uncontrollable,this results ramming and causing high damage to the        trailer.

·        Observe the traffic movements and road conditions.

·        Recognize the Trucks that seemed unsafe, such as those that are spontaneously changing lanes and suspecting to have speed over the        limits.

·        Pursue the Traffic flow

·        Always use indicator while taking a turn or maneuvering the lanes.

·        Maintain distance between you and the player in front of you to avoid lag and ramming.

·        Never drive when you feel tired and drowsy.

 

**Pay attention to heavy traffic in the distance:

 

When you arrived at the crowded section of the road, you should leave the acceleration, applying the retarder, cruising forward and then apply Brake in the final stage. This will allow you to slow down comfortably.

 

·        Depending on the distance, you should brake to slow down to a decent speed while approaching a heavy traffic.

·        This constant, slow speed will allow you to brake comfortably and create less potential for accidents.

·        Have some patience.

·        Be on the same line with the other trucks before you.

I like the texting and driving part. If you want to show someone the dangers of phone-based distractions, make them play this game for five minutes while texting.

Really good guide, I wish I listened to it before because now I'm banned for over a month for overtaking in the C-D Road while traffic was ahead.

Also this should be pinned.

There's no thing called safety on that road. Not because of the people who actually read these forums, but because of all those guys who think that a 2 ways road is a Formula 1 track with monster trucks vs nascar.
