This should be obvious, but it’s still important to keep in mind. The slower you drive, the more time you have to stop if a child walking to school or on a bike appears in front of you suddenly.
2. Obey crosswalk rules
When you drive through a crosswalk, always listen to the crossing guard, obey flashing lights that tell you to yield to pedestrians, and stay completely out of the crosswalk until it’s clear. The front of your car shouldn’t be in the crosswalk, or you could force children walking to go around your car and into the street.
3. Drop off safely
You should always drop off your kids on the side of the road the school is on so that they don’t have to cross the street. Also, don’t double park in drop-off lines, as it blocks the sightline of other drivers and pedestrians.
4. Carpool if you can
Carpooling is a great way to reduce the number of cars going to and from school, which makes it safer for everyone. Try to get a group of parents together who can take several kids one or two days a week. This has the added bonus of freeing up some of your mornings, too.
Reading a good book can help pass the time when you’re a passenger on a road trip. But it’s common for some people to get a headache or feel nauseous when doing so. Here are some tips for reading during road trips so you can enjoy literary adventures while minimizing symptoms of carsickness.
Pack some nausea medicine
Consider taking Dramamine® to minimize feelings of nausea when reading in the car. If headaches are a more common symptom for you, pack some ibuprofen.
Take advantage of audiobooks
Bring some earbuds and listen to an audiobook during your travels. Many libraries have apps that let you rent out audiobooks and listen to them for free. Though, you can also go with paid audiobook subscriptions like Audible or Audiobooks.com if you prefer a wider selection of titles to choose from.
Adjust your sitting position
Sometimes, altering how you sit while you read can go a long way in reducing motion sickness. If your seat allows, tilt it back a bit more than usual so you can recline while you read.
Read at rest stops
If none of these strategies work, and you really can’t get into audiobooks, try reading at rest stops. That way, you can still dive into your favorite story and avoid getting carsick.
Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet wishes you and your family a summer filled with great books, good times, and fun travels. Remember to bring your vehicle in for service before your next getaway to ensure that it’s roadworthy.
