Do you have any special plans for the break? How about a food trip! Hit some of the most savory places, then make a quick stop at the beach to catch some sun. However, before hitting the road check out these tips for safe driving from our Orlando Toyota Service Center.
Plan your route
Before heading out make sure to plan out your route. Determine where your stops and destinations are, the old fashioned way! You can’t always rely on cell reception and GPS. Make sure you know you’re way around in case the GPS get’s lost.
If you’re making a long road trip it’s wise to take breaks from driving. Not only will the driver be less tires, it’s also safer. Driving for a long period of time can be dangerous. You may become reckless and not use your safe driving techniques.
One great way to sample dishes from different places is to make stops a long the way. Taking breaks is a great way to get out of the driving zone, enjoy, relax, and then get back on the road. This way you’re refreshed and you’re more aware while practicing safe driving.
One way to ensure you’re practicing safe driving is to put away any electronic devices that will take your attention away. Have a co-pilot that can help you manage your phone, the GPS, and snacks while both of your hands are on the wheel.
You might be on your a-game and on top of your safe driving techniques, but others around you may not be. Be sure to use your defensive driving techniques to avoid those reckless drivers out there! Keep an eye out for drivers who are speeding, texting, or not paying attention to the road.
