Happy Monday, friends! Are you ready to kick off another week, or did your morning commute into work start your week off on the wrong foot already? A commute – especially a long one – in your Orlando Toyota can be stressful and frustrating when traffic, weather, and bad drivers are thrown into the mix. Luckily, Toyota of Orlando has tips for you to improve your morning drive time every day of the week so you can get to work fresh and ready to start the day. Let’s talk Toyota tips for your commute!
Make your commute as easy as possible with our tips!
Our first tip for your morning commute is to use the cruise control in your new Toyota if you find yourself on long stretches of empty highway. This will alleviate some of the stress and unpleasantness of a long time behind the wheel and can up your fuel efficiency. However, never use cruise control in the dark, when it’s raining, or if there are a lot of cars or traffic around you – then it becomes more dangerous than helpful!
Next tip for your morning commute: make sure you check traffic and weather before you leave the house in your new Toyota in Orlando. This will help you seek out alternate routes if your normal route is clogged up or congested, and it can help you be on your A-game if the weather conditions are bad. If you forget before you get into the driver’s seat, just use the Entune Audio System found in so many of our new Toyota cars! You’ll have access to real-time traffic AND weather through HD Radio!
You should always use defensive driving when you’re commuting into work in the morning. This means staying alert, being aware of drivers around you, leaving distance between your Orlando Toyota and other cars, and following the rules of the road. The more alert you are and the more you anticipate other drivers’ actions before they happen, the less chance you have of getting into an accident or collision!
Orlando Toyota technology can make your drive time safer
Orlando Toyota defensive driving also means staying OFF of your phone! Using your phone during your drive time – whether you’re texting, making calls, or surfing the internet – is a big distraction and can cause a collision. Instead, use the Bluetooth technology that we offer in almost all of our new Toyota cars! You can stream phone calls and use handy controls mounted on the steering wheel to make them, so your attention is always where it should be – on the road in front of you.
Try to make your morning commute as stress-free as possible! Make your coffee or tea before you leave so you can sip it, remember your sunglasses, be sure your gas tank is full the night before, and make a playlist before you hit the road. Planning around traffic and weather will help keep your stress levels low, too!
