Simple Tips for a Stress Free Commute

18 Jul

The biggest problem with commuting is that everyone travels at the same time. People get frustrated and tired and will be more inclined to behave unpredictably – be wary and anticipate the actions of road users around you.

  • The most vulnerable road users will be about around rush hour – walking to school, or cycling to work. Give children and cyclists plenty of room and watch out for children emerging from between parked cars.
  • Familiar routes are the ones we get most careless about, taking the predictability of the route for granted. Stay alert and keep your attention on the road ahead.
  • Listen out for traffic updates on the radio in case your route is affected, and learn an alternative route or two in case of an accident or road closure.
  • Check the weather before you travel; heavy rain usually slows traffic up, so leave a little earlier than you usually would.
  • Using your car to commute to work means you are especially reliant on it working. Regularly check your tyre pressures and condition, you washer fluid and oil levels, and all of your lights.

Always remember – better late than never.
