[YesAuto 用车宝典] The epidemic in 2021 has repeatedly improved with the rise of national temperature. Then, when the Qingming Festival is approaching, where do you plan to relax? If you choose to travel by car, what aspects should you pay attention to? On the eve of the holiday, AutoNavi released the holiday travel guide as always, and we also helped you to sort out and analyze it in detail. Those who want to travel must not miss it!

Although self-driving travel has avoided intensive crowd contact to the greatest extent, we still cannot take the epidemic prevention work lightly before the journey begins. In addition to wearing a mask, preparing the corresponding health code according to the travel destination will make the journey more comfortable and smooth.

Spring is not only suitable for travel, but also a good season for viewing flowers. According to the data report released by AutoNavi Maps, during the Ching Ming Festival in 2021, the congestion level of highways across the country will increase by about 47% compared with 2020.

In particular, Ching Ming Festival is a national statutory high-speed toll-free holiday, and it is expected that the first day of the small holiday, that is, April 3, will become the peak of congestion on the outbound journey of the holiday. On April 5, which is the last day of the long holiday, it will become the peak of congestion on the return journey.

In detail to the specific time period, AutoNavi Map predicts that starting at 3 pm on April 2, 2021, highways across the country will gradually enter a state of congestion. And at 8 to 11 in the evening, the time when most office workers can leave after dinner is the first wave of congestion.

The congestion peak of the expressway will be ushered in from 8 am to 12 am on April 3, and the congestion peak of the return journey will be at 2 pm to 7 pm on April 5. Friends who have travel plans may wish to pay attention to these points in time, so that you can avoid wasting your precious physical energy and energy in the flow of traffic by traveling on a staggered peak.

In this data report, Gaode Map also predicted several heavily congested road sections, and the congestion duration was about 11-18 hours. If you are not “kidney fighters”, it is better to avoid these sections as much as possible.

Considering the specific highway sections, the first day of the Ching Ming Festival holiday is April 3, and the most congested section is the Chuanyang River-Wuzhou Avenue Overpass on the Shanghai S20 Outer Ring Expressway . The congestion delay index reached 16.4. , The average speed is only 5km/h. However, friends living in Shanghai may have been surprised by this kind of scene. Followed by the G1255 Changtai Expressway Suzhou section and S5 Guangtai Expressway Foshan section . The congestion index of these two sections reached 14.9 and 13.9 respectively, and the average speed was 7km/h. Friends who want to travel in Suzhou and Foshan need to pay special attention.

On April 5, which is the last day of the long holiday, the most congested section of the national high-speed return journey is mainly the S51 Zhaoyang Expressway Yunfu section . The daytime congestion delay index is 8.4, and the average speed is about 11km/h, followed by G36. Chuzhou section of Ningluo Expressway and Jinhua and Shaoxing sections of S26 Zhuyong Expressway. Friends who have plans to take these road sections are best to prepare early.

In addition to the possible congestion on the road during the Ching Ming Festival, the scenic spot is naturally easy to “dump dumplings”. According to the big data statistics of scenic spots provided by Gaode Maps, since March this year, the search volume of scenic spots across the country has increased by 136% over the same period last year, and has increased by 21% over the same period last year.

According to data forecasts, the most popular scenic spot during the Ching Ming Festival holiday is the West Lake Scenic Area in Hangzhou, followed by Taiziwan Park, Taihu Yuantouzhu Scenic Area, Ancient Jiming Temple, China Baili Rhododendron Scenic Area, Gucun Park, Tiananmen Square, Guangzhou Tower , Wutai Mountain Scenic Area, Xi'an Bell Tower.

Flower viewing in spring is also the goal of many friends' self-driving trips. Last year, due to the needs of epidemic prevention and control, many friends' travel plans were somewhat affected. This year, AutoNavi Map has also carefully sorted out the popular flower viewing scenic spots in the country, and even included a three-day holiday weather forecast for the scenic spot as a reference.

From the data, the azaleas in the Baili Rhododendron Scenic Area in Bijie City, the cherry blossoms in the Yuantouzhu Scenic Area of Taihu Lake in Wuxi City, and the tulips in the Taiziwan Park in Hangzhou City will become popular flower viewing spots that attract tourists. Compared with last year, the heat of many scenic spots will also have a relatively large increase. It is worth noting that there will be rain in many scenic spots during the Qingming Festival. If you also have plans for the above destinations, you may wish to prepare rain gear.

Before traveling by car, we also need to conduct a comprehensive inspection of the state of the vehicle. After all, no one wants to be affected by the problem of the vehicle during the game.

In addition to the vehicle itself, it is best to check the missing items and make up for the necessary items commonly used on the way. Commonly used medicines can be packed in a small first aid kit and placed in the car; in order to deal with prolonged traffic jams that may occur at any time, some food and water can be prepared. Of course, if you have the conditions and do not have any confidence in your own “endurance” ability, you can also consider having a set of “car toilet” in your car. If you haven't bought it and don't know which one is good, we have done a lot of it.” “Taste” Hengping “Does it matter where you land?” The editorial department’s men’s team personally tested emergency toilet supplies” for your reference.

Whenever you go high-speed, the experience of owning ETC is like taking the first class/business class/gold card/platinum card channel by plane. With the support of national policies, ETC now does not have to go to a bank or business hall to apply. As long as you have WeChat or Alipay, you can apply for ETC online, and you can get it within three days . Payment and recharge can also be completed online, which is indeed a lot more convenient.

If the vehicle has a problem while driving, remember not to panic. The driver should immediately turn on the hazard warning flasher and move the vehicle to a place that does not hinder the traffic. If it is difficult to move, continue to turn on the hazard warning flasher in the direction of the vehicle. Set warning signs and other measures to expand the warning distance, and promptly report to the police when necessary. When waiting for rescue, you must also pay attention to evacuate to the right shoulder or emergency lane, and do not stay in the lane to avoid unnecessary secondary injuries.

In the past, the experience of old drivers could only rely on word of mouth. Now, with the continuous expansion of big data application scenarios, we can even predict a lot of possible road congestion in advance and plan to avoid it in advance. I hope you can travel smoothly, return home safely, and spend a pleasant holiday with your family and friends. (Picture/Text Car Home Yang Peng)
