Commuting can be a hassle – we won’t lie. Sometimes the traffic can seem endless and the stress intolerable. However, there are steps you can take to ensure your commute stays easy breezy, and our Orlando Toyota dealership is here to share a few tips with you to help you do it. Let’s get started!
Toyota of Orlando talks commuting
Commuting tip #1: Plan ahead. Running late only makes your commute that much more stressful, so pack your lunch the night before, put everything you need by the front door, and pick out your clothes. Small steps like these will save you tons of time in the morning and let you hit the road punctually.
Commuting tip #2: Check traffic BEFORE you leave. There’s nothing worse than being stuck in the middle of a traffic jam with no way to get to an alternate route. Use the technology in your Orlando Toyota to check traffic before you leave the driveway so you can change your route and get to your final destination with as little stress as possible!
Commuting tip #3: Do what you need to do BEFORE you leave the house to avoid distracted driving. This means all your personal grooming, as well as eating your breakfast! Trying to do other things behind the wheel is stressful and also dangerous to you and other drivers.
Commuting tip #4: Sync your phone with Bluetooth. Make sure your phone is connected; this way you can stream your favorite music to keep your drive time calm, as well as take phone calls without using your hands (keep them on the wheel!). A lot of cars at Toyota of Orlando have this great technology, so just ask our sales specialists!

Commuting tip #5: Don’t rush if you’re running late. It’s tempting to put the pedal to the metal when you’re running behind, but this can cause you to get into an accident or collision. It’s better to be safe, use defensive driving, and be a little late to your destination than to not arrive at all!
Commuting tip #6: Don’t give into road rage. It’s so easy to get annoyed with other drivers when they don’t follow the rules of the road. However, road rage doesn’t achieve anything except major frustration for you and possible dangerous situations. Play your favorite music or an audiobook you like to keep your mind on other things and your stress down!
Commuting tip #7: Use your best defensive driving skills. This means paying close attention to your surroundings so you can react before an accident, as opposed to reacting when it’s happening. Leave enough space between you and other cars, follow the speed limit, and always double check before changing lanes.
