How to Drive Long Distances

Prepare for the Long Drive Ahead

The best way to stay safe during long distance driving, is to prepare for the trip effectively. Planning will help you foresee what you may need to do or take, so you can arrive safely. To that end:
  • Prepare your body and mind for the trip. Try to eat and sleep well in the days leading up to the event (especially the night before the drive).
  • Of course, you should also trace your routes: know where you're, what roads you'll take, the conditions of said roads, etc.
  • It's also necessary that you take the weather forecast into account. Knowing what the weather will be like will help you prepare for the situation better.
  • You shouldn't forget to prepare and take luggage for your drive. Likewise, take some necessities with you in the car (from music you enjoy, to water, snacks, sunglasses, and more).
  • If you want to be comfortable while you're sitting down for hours, dress appropriately for the drive. Sweatpants and tennis shoes will help you stay comfy all the way there.
  • Last but not least, have enough time for the drive. Don't wait until the last minute to prepare and to go, since this will only increase your stress levels while you're on the road. Moreover, leaving early helps you beat traffic and take better advantage of the sunshine.

Keep Your Vehicle in Mint Condition

Now that you're prepared for the road ahead, it's imperative that you also prepare your vehicle for the trip it's about to go on. For that reason, you need to take certain steps to guarantee it's in mint condition for it. Most importantly of all, you should take your vehicle to a professional mechanic. Let them know your situation so they know to prepare your vehicle for the demanding endeavor it will have to go through. Their expertise on the matter will allow them to evaluate your vehicle thoroughly and find any areas that could be fine-tuned. Plus, they'll provide the routine service it needs to remain in mint condition for years to come.

Keep Your Full Attention on the Road

Probably the most obvious of all tips, but one that can be increasingly difficult when you're going to be driving for long hours, is that you need to keep your full attention on the road. You never know what could happen that could change the conditions in front of you in the blink of an eye, but you need to be ready to react appropriately to those arising situations.   So, if you want to reach your destination safely, pay attention to the road, drive gently, and follow the traffic signs. Also, avoid distractions (your phone, the radio, and more).

Stop When It's Necessary

Finally, one of the most important things to keep in mind when long distance driving is that you will need to stop from time to time. This is because driving can be a tiring activity, and as mentioned above, you need to be at your best to pay attention to the road. Often times, drivers think that they can keep going when they're tired, and they opt for sugary or caffeinated beverages to help them stay up. Still, this is not an effective approach, as you will feel a crash later on. So, if you're tired, and you can't share the wheel with one of your passengers, find a place (be it a rest stop, motel, or other) where you can take a quick nap to recharge.
