Escape Driving Hell With These Savvy Strategies

It’s easy to find yourself in driving hell, whether it’s because you have to travel for much longer than you’d like, your safety is at risk, or the vehicle you are using isn’t exactly your dream ride. Happily, whether you do a lot of driving every day or only get behind the wheel on occasion, such issues can be resolved. Read on to find out how.

Do cut your journey time.

One way that you can prevent yourself from ending up in driving hell, or at least minimise your time there is to cut down the length of your journey. This used to be a tall order and involved carefully looking at fold-out maps and planning each leg of your trip to avoid peak hour traffic.

Luckily, things have come a long way and using a satellite navigation system that can provide real-time updates on traffic density, as well as the best way to avoid jams and road works can help with this. Something that means you can easily reduce the length of any journey.

Don’t drive the same no matter what the weather.

Driving in wet weather can be dangerous, if not done correctly.

Believe it or not, there are some drivers out there that forget entirely to tailor their driving to the weather they find themselves in. Of course, this is incredibly dangerous and not only puts their own safety at risk but the safety of other road users as well.

With that in mind, if you want to avoid the hell that is the anxiety of feeling unsafe on the road, it’s crucial that you are not one of those people. What that means is you need to slow down in the rain and snow and be sure to leave the correct distance between you and the car in front.

Do treat yourself to a sweet ride.

Another way that you can escape driving hell is to go all out and treat yourself to a car that is not only comfortable to ride in, but that is fun to drive as well.

Of course, what put most people off doing this is the cost involved, but with pay-monthly deals available on models like this Used Aston Martin Rapide it is entirely possible to have a sweet ride at a more affordable price. This being something that can turn even the most reluctant driver into a driving enthusiast.

Don’t forget to keep your passengers entertained.

Finally, when it comes to hellish car journeys, there is nothing more annoying that have your passengers chew your ear off for the entire ride. In fact, when all you want to do is Zen out and enjoy the drive having someone nattering away can be infuriating.

Luckily, there are some simple ways you can resolve this issue, and you don’t have to scream at your passenger to shut up either. Instead, fit the back of your car with DVD players and put on their favourite movie. Alternatively, you could even try playing an audiobook to keep them entertained as well.  Something that can make any journey feel like heaven instead of hell.
