How to Avoid Traffic

Nothing is worse than sitting in traffic after a long day of work, or even just in general. As cities become more heavily populated and society becomes busier, traffic in turn is only becoming worse and worse. Fortunately, there are some ways to avoid traffic, or at least make it slightly more bearable. Here are a few helpful tips for dealing with traffic:

·         Alter your time of travel

Experiment with different times of travel to see which time frame will work the best. Most major cities have rush hour traffic in the morning around 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. when people are commuting to work and when they are commuting back from work around 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. If you have the luxury of altering your schedule, it is well worth the time to plan on avoiding traffic.

·         Have alternative routes

Always be prepared for the worst and have another route mapped out in case of accidents, road work, rush hour, or any other event that can cause traffic delays.

·         Check traffic reports

Always check traffic reports prior to departing for any destinations so that you can plan your route accordingly.

·         Use a GPS or phone app with live traffic updates

Many new GPS devices have live traffic updates that will reroute you to avoid any delays. There are also available GPS apps on most cell phones, but these should be used with caution because cell phone usage while driving can be extremely distracting.

·         Listen to local radio stations

Many local radio stations have live traffic updates to assist drivers in their commutes.
