Safe Driving Tips
The Road to Success is sometimes paved with...traffic tickets?!?
Follow these safe-driving tips to avoid a costly citation
We are all guilty of not following the traffic laws perfectly every time we drive. We've all pushed on the gas pedal a little harder when we're late for work, or rolled through a stop sign on the familiar route home that we have driven every day for 10 years. I mean after all, increasing your speed that extra 10 mph is just an effort to safely maintain the flow of traffic right? And you did look left and right twice before safely sliding on through that stop sign.
Unfortunately, these minor traffic violations are still breaking the law and can lead to a costly traffic ticket and tarnished driving record. Follow these tips to ticket prevention and you will be on the road to success!
Don't Hit the Snooze Button
Easier said than done. But by allowing yourself extra time in the morning to travel the route to school or work, you can obey the speed limits and avoid the feeling to rush through rush hour.
Turn on the tunes
According to a study done by research cardiologist, Dr. Mike Miller from the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore, listening to your favorite music is one of the best de-stressors available. So crank up the stereo and rock your way to a road-rage free drive.
Kick the cell phone to the curb
Ok, maybe not literally. But if you are an avid texter or talker, who let's face it, hasn't always abided by the driving laws for cell phones, maybe it's time to leave that phone in the trunk for the commute. If you absolutely can't quit cold-turkey, have your blue tooth handy and fight the urge to check those texts, e- mails and other distracted driving traps.
Catch up on your ZZZ's
Sounds so simple. But when playing the juggling act in today's fast-paced culture, the one thing we generally cut back on is our sleep and research shows that this can be a dangerous habit, especially for drivers. In a study published in the British Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, researchers in Australia and New Zealand found that people who drive after being awake for 17 to 19 hours performed worse than those with a blood alcohol level of 0.05 percent. That's almost the legal limit for drunk driving! So give yourself a cat nap during the day and try to get your eight hours at night.
Entertain the little ones
Kids are a joy, but any parent knows that they can be hell-on-wheels while in the car which can lead to dangerously distracted driving. Be sure and pack snacks and plenty of entertainment for the little ones. Books or hand-held gaming devices are a lifesaver even for a short trip across town.
