Being in a Hurry Leads to Stressful Driving

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Rules of the Road: Driving Tips

While it’s generally something that many would suggest be practiced in most aspects of life, giving yourself plenty of time to get to your destination when driving is one of the best ways to ensure you’re being as safe as possible when on the road. We all know what it’s like to be late and we know that the more late we are, the more stressful it is. Stress is something that should be avoided whenever possible when you’re behind the wheel. Your mind will be preoccupied, which means you’ll be focusing less on the task at hand, which driving in a manner that helps you avoid accidents and the serious injuries that they cause.

This is even more of a problem when you’re running late because you’re distracted mind is combined with a sense of urgency. You speed up when you see a yellow light instead of yielding or not make a complete stop at an intersection because in your mind, you believe it will save you a few seconds. The reality is, moves like that end up saving you very little time and only increase the chances you’ll get into an accident.

It’s certainly easier said than done for the most part but simply giving yourself extra time when going somewhere instead of trying to wait until the last moment to leave for your destination is really the best way to avoid this dilemma. This is especially true when driving somewhere you’ve never been but also applies to going somewhere familiar.
