Vacation Driving Tips
Hitting the road without getting hit ON the road is the key to an enjoyable time away with friends and family. Here are five ways to avoid an accident during that long haul to your Summertime getaway:
Sleep On It.Drowsy driving contributes to more than 100,000 accidents each year. Make sure you’re well-rested before you depart for your trip.
Sit Up Straight.Your Mom was right when she reminded you not to slouch. If you’re slouching while driving for long periods of time, you can become overly tired.
Drink Up.With water, of course. Drinking plenty of water not only helps you stay alert, it forces you to stop for breaks and stretch your legs.
Be Far-Sighted.Fixating on the car in front of you will keep you from seeing potential danger further down the road. Make sure you’re looking several cars ahead, especially in heavy traffic.
Nix the Phone.Protect yourself and your family by ignoring the phone while you’re in the car. No call or text is that important!
