Pro Driving Tactics You Can Apply to Your Everyday Commute

Many people endure a daily commute to and from work. When mass transit is not an option, you may find yourself behind the wheel for an hour or longer every day. This time adds up, but you can make the most of it by applying these four tips that the professional drivers on the road also use.

Properly Adjust Your Mirrors

Pro drivers know that visibility is key to safety on the road. Your mirrors are there to allow you to see the vehicles around you. Each time you get into your vehicle, adjust your mirrors properly. This is especially important if you share the car with another driver who is not the same height as you.

Pay Attention to Your Driving Habits

If you are an executor of the "rolling stop" or you have a lead foot, pay attention to this. Avoiding these unlawful practices could help you to avoid getting pulled over by the police and will also reduce your vehicle's fuel consumption. A lead foot also uses more fuel compared to applying the gas and brakes in a steady manner. Pay attention to the exit signs and lane change signs. This helps to avoid the need to cross over multiple lanes of traffic.

Plan around Traffic

Use an app to plan your route in order to avoid traffic problems. Professionals like those at Clearfield & Kofsky, know that you should stay on top of the local or state department of transportation's planned construction projects and adjust your route to work as needed. Check in with live traffic reports before you leave home and see if there are any accidents on your usual path to work.

Make the Best Use of Your Commuting Time

Instead of fumbling around with your MP3 player or trying to find something good on the radio, use your driving time to be productive. Consider listening to podcasts that will help you to learn something new. You could even start to learn a foreign language with audio files. If you like books but do not have the spare time to read, consider playing audio books during your commute.

Safety should be your highest priority for your commute. Be aware of road and weather conditions. Try to avoid areas where accidents are frequent. Maintain your vehicle, taking the time to ensure that your lights are properly functioning. Avoiding distractions, such as your phone, are also important to a safe daily commute. Following these four tips will help to make your commute to work safer and enjoyable.
