Preparing for a Long Journey

A long drive can take its toll the driver and it’s important to properly prepare, especially if you’re going to be driving for more than 4 hours. Planning the route is always important, and you are likely to want to keep it as short as possible by avoiding high traffic areas and accident prone roads.

Noting places where you can stop off can ensure your journey is broken up slightly and this is especially important when you’re travelling back at night, otherwise you may find yourself drifting off at the wheel.

Whatever time you’re travelling, it’s important to make sure you have some food in your body ready for the journey, and keeping some energetic sweets or drinks in the car can also be really handy. Remember long drives require a great deal of concentration and stopping off every once in a while will improve your overall performance.
