Is varebilen filled? So great is the effect on the stopping distance

Tool boxes, vacuum cleaners and possibly a few home-built shelving.

the Load in an ordinary håndværkervarerum can quickly get varebilens total weight to skyrocket, and it has not only importance for the fuel consumption and wear and tear on the tires. Also the stopping distance will be affected, and it is even significantly.

A new survey by the british division of Volkswagen stands behind, concludes that 500 kilos of the load area to get the stopping distance to increase by up to 33 percent at 30 miles per hour (equivalent to 48 km/h).

the Car must, in other words, use two more feet to stop than if the load area were empty. It writes the Volkswagen in a press release.

the Conclusion is based on Volkswagen's own tests with the three varebilsmodeller VW Caddy, Transporter and Crafter. They have been slowed down, with and without weight from 30 to 60 miles an hour, but VW does not reveal how each is performing. Nor is it clear how much they actually spend on to stop.

in turn, it turns out that the difference in stopping with and without the ballast becomes smaller when the speed is increased. At 60 miles an hour (approximately 97 km/h.) being the average stopping distance for the tested cars 'only' 19 percent longer when is 500 pounds of the load area.

however, It does still, to varebilen must spend an additional five feet to brake up, if it is loaded.

Have you ever tried to run with a read, it may not be as no big surprise that the stopping distance will be adversely affected. It can be clearly felt.

Should you believe a survey conducted among 500 british drivers, such as Volkswagen also stands behind, many still find it difficult to assess exactly how big the effect is. Over half of the respondents are allegedly unable to answer the question of how much stopping distance will be increased when the load area is loaded with 500 kilos.

the Study get the british head of VW's department for commercial vehicles, Carl zu Dohna, to the right a raised index finger against the varebilschauffører.

- Regardless of whether they are plumbers, gardeners or bygningarbejdere, so running our customers often with a half-ton of tools and equipment, and they should be aware that they must adapt their driving style if they want to avoid an expensive and potentially serious accident, says Carl zu Dohna in the press release.

to the equation must also always be the reaction time, to use to translate the sight of a suddenly obstacle to a hard press on the brake pedal. According to the Council for Safe Traffic, you use approximately 33 metres to react, when driving 80 km/h.
