Losing your nerve is rather easy this time of year buying the last gifts, getting the ingredients for your new recipes and driving around like crazy. Luckily there are solutions:
- Don´t call to say you are late while behind the wheel
A big part of all car crashes are caused by driver distraction. Tracking your family’s location by calling home or texting on WhatsApp saying you are late is one of the most popular distractions.
There is a better way. Drive safely while they can check your location real time using Wave from 15 min up to 8 hours. This way allows them to interact with you, know if you are late and where you are without you even picking up your cellphone.
This Christmas we are introducing you an amazing app to get home safe and let your family know how much they need to feed you. Finding your friendws was never easier. Enjoy it!
Be late but be safe #BetterTogether
- Unable the notifications
It is very tempting listening to the push notifications while you are already bored of driving, so we encourage you to put the sound off or unable all the notifications so you don’t get distracted by your cellphone. If you really need to talk, stop your car, have a quick coffee and use your cellphone. Enjoy a little bit of time for yourself, relax and keep driving safe.
Some cellphones have the mode “don´t disturb” which actually is like the flight mode, an option to enable or disable depending on the conditions. If your cellphone has it, driving it is such a good time to use it.
- If you want to have a drink, be clever
There are plenty of apps that are a good alternative to avoid driving, such as Uber, that runs in most of the countries, or Cabify that is a private service for passengers, especially for Latam and Europe. Public transport could also help and allows to save some money.
- How to park at Christmas
It seems that all the seats left on the street are already occupied and parking is running out of places early in the afternoon. It is crazy, we know. Finding your friends and relatives would be difficult those days, so we suggest you to try some services as Car to Go, which allows you to rent an electric car anywhere in a city and drop it anywhere you go. Just using a map you can find the closest car available and pay for the route, not for the parking.
