Thus, the distance from Moscow to Sochi will increase to 1690 km. More likely to lose time in traffic jams, in fact, saving on the chosen direction will not work.
Slower ride - you will continue
Don't relax after successfully overcoming difficulties on the highway. Since the geographical features of the Black Sea coast, even for an experienced driver, require maximum concentration. From the entrance to Dzhubga for 200 km along the entire Black Sea coast to the border with Abkhazia - "serpentine". Most of the M 27 is a winding highway with sharp turns, ups and downs.
What increases life risks?
- Fatigue of drivers. Having miscalculated their strength, they simply fall asleep duringmovement.
- Failure to follow the rules of the road, especially the speed limit.
- Technical malfunctions of the car.
Many, seeking to quickly get to their vacation spot, exceed the speed limit, try to shorten the Moscow-Sochi distance, and neglect to stop for sleep. Continuous driving leads to a dull response. Never forget that the driver is responsible for the life of his own, passengers and other innocent road users. On the road, not the one who is “not to blame” in the event of an accident is right, but the one who does not create emergency situations and can prevent them.
