Toyota of Orlando's tips for driving in heavy traffic

Sometimes driving in traffic is unavoidable, which is why you want to be prepared for it to happen to you. What can you do to stay safe while in your new Toyota during traffic? Here are some of our safe driving tips for taking on heavy traffic:

Keep calm

If you run into traffic while behind the wheel of your new Toyota in Orlando, the first thing you want to keep in mind is to stay calm. Panicking in this kind of situation can cause you to get into an accident. This includes staying in control of your anger! Keeping your composure will help you keep your mind on the road and avoid dangerous situations. 

Move slowly

If you're stuck in stop-and-go traffic, you can't help but go slow. However, there could be times during traffic when you can finally speed up. We advise you to keep your pace slow and steady, as you never know when traffic can come to a stop again! Even if you avoid colliding into the car in front of you, you risk a rear-end collision with the car behind you. 

Maintain extra space

Another way you can avoid a collision is by maintaining a buffer zone between your new Toyota in Orlando and the cars around you. The actions of other cars on the road can be unpredictable when driving in heavy traffic! Leaving some extra space will help give you more time to react to the actions of other drivers. 

Take another route

You can also try to avoid traffic by finding another route. If you're on the highway and you start to feel too nervous, we suggest you exit. We understand that not everyone is comfortable with highways, especially when there's traffic. You might even be able to save time by taking another route, even if it's a longer distance! Many of our new Toyota in Orlando offer a navigation system to help!

Avoid distracted driving

Although you might get restless while sitting in traffic, it's important to stay alert while in your Orlando Toyota. Just because traffic is stopping, doesn't mean it's time to start texting. You never know when cars can start to move again or something unexpected can happen. This is why you want to keep your focus on the road and avoid distracted driving in Orlando!
