Clutch then Brake or Brake then clutch?

Well, if you have been driving for long time then I am sure you must have heard about this question many times.

I have explored this a lot, tried both strategies in after all that all my conclusions are here:

  • Brake first always when you are driving on highway or at higher speeds (above 40-50 km/h) consistently

If you drive responsibly then do you suck at driving? Not really.

While planning your road trips you should always take this factor into account. Continue reading

Reliance Jio on the Highway

Yesterday I went for a long drive from Bangalore(Karnataka) to Penukonda (Andhra Pradesh).

I have been using reliance jio 4g for more than 4 months now but never got a chance to test it on the highways far off from cities. So yesterday I decided to test it out. I did not take any speed tests or screenshot as such because I was not thinking of blogging about it but today I thought it’s worth it.

You can see the blue route in the map below. I followed this exact route and I had seamless 4g connectivity. At some places network was poor but that was very rare. Continue reading
