Start With the Obvious
Your driving instructor meant it when they told you to check your mirrors and seats before each drive. Before you drive, take the time to set up your car so that no further changes need to be made whilst you are driving. If you are using a GPS unit, plan and start this prior to driving, allowing you to drive without the need to interact with it.
Traveling With Children
Are we there yet? Hearing this constantly as you drive not only distracts you, but raises your temper level. If you are traveling with children, arrange sufficient entertainment for them prior to leaving. Additionally, pack a small lunch or some snacks to keep in the back seat with them so they don’t need to bother you whilst you drive.
What’s That Noise? What Are You Doing?
Sometimes thing are just going to happen while you’re driving, whether your child is screaming or there is a strange noise inside your engine. When these problem arise, pull over. Don’t look and reach back to assist your child, instead, pull your car over and rectify the issue calmly and safely.
