Many of us have the drag that is commuting to work in the morning and evening.Your drive to and from work can be the most tiring part of your work or school day, so it is important that you practice safe driving practices. Here some tips to help you get back and forth from your day safely.
1. Check Your Vehicle Conditions
Have you vehicle checked regularly.Catch the need for an oil change or air in your tires before it gets you stuck.
2. Fill Up Ahead of Time
Even if you think you have enough gas to get to and from where you are going, it is always a good idea to have a minimum of a quarter tank. It is also better for your car to keep a minimum amount of gas in it.
3. Stay Alert
If you know you tend to get tired as you are driving, consider a cup of coffee or tea on your way. Being tired behind the wheel can put you and others in danger.
4. Plan Your Trip Ahead
Check out traffic reports and accidents before you get on your usual route. Leave enough time to get to your destination so you don't need to stress or be anxious about being late.
5. Things to Avoid
Even if you are getting bored sitting in back-to-back traffic, it is never a good idea to use your phone. Even a quick text message or scroll down Facebook takes your eyes off the road, putting you at danger for a crash.
Stay alert & plan ahead to avoid the dangers and frustrations of a long commute.
