In-Car Driving Distractions

Distracted driving isn't just unsafe, it's also life threatening. There are many ways in which a driver can become distracted; whether it's by your kiddiewinks calling your name repeatedly and kicking up a fuss or even your friends in the back who are completely inebriated from their wild night out. Whatever your in-car surroundings, it's crucial to keep alert and stay safe on those busy roads, which can only get busier on the run-up to Christmas. So, how can we prevent such distractions?

Travelling with children

When little ones are faced with a long journey, it often results in them becoming restless, fidgety and irritable. Lengthy journeys with children in the car really can become a big distraction even when their intentions are completely harmless. If you turn your attention from the wheel for even a split second, the result can be truly devastating.

So, what can you do to prevent the kids from becoming dissatisfied during your travels? Before you set off, make sure they've gone "for a try." This way, you're less likely to frantically search for the nearest toilet stop. You should also:

    Pack some snacks - one reason your child may be feeling a little irritable could be because they're hungry. Keep some food and juice at hand if they get peckish. Keep some sweets in the front for them too if you're feeling generous.
    Take a break - remember that you child may need to stretch their legs so stop off at the nearest service station if you can so they can get a little fresh air.
    Grab the must-haves - does your child have a favourite toy? A favourite blanket perhaps or maybe a game? Something so little may help your child feel at ease throughout the longest of journeys.

There are also a number of safety precautions in order to keep your beloved little one safe and secure while on those journeys regardless of how big or small those journeys may be. Make sure they're securely fastened in with a seatbelt and the child locks are on. Make sure your child has the correct child seat too and it's securely fastened.
