Arrive Alive in Aurora

May 16, 2021

We've all seen drivers do crazy things while driving to or from Aurora. A guy shaving in the rear-view mirror, a woman applying makeup, people talking on their phones, texting or drinking from an enormous coffee mug. It's a wonder we even dare drive on Illinois roads.

The truth is that all of us are distracted when we drive. Unfortunately, traffic, road construction and other external factors are beyond our control. The distractions inside our car, however, are things we can often control.

Here's some things that'll give you more control in your car, and help keep your attention on the roads around Aurora.

  • Aurora drivers who are 16 to 20 years old tend to be more distracted by the radio, CD or MP3 player.
  • Aurora drivers who are 20 to 29 are more distracted by passengers in the car, including small children.
  • Those over age 65 tend to be more distracted by objects or events that are outside of the vehicle.

Other factors like fatigue, stress and lack of sleep make it harder to pay attention to driving – no matter what age we are. It is always better to pull over and take a quick nap than risk falling asleep at the wheel. Aurora drivers are also distracted by thinking about relationships, family issues, money and bills. So what can Aurora drivers do to manage these distractions? Well, the first thing is to eliminate as many as we can.

If you really think you have to shave, change your clothes or put on make-up while driving in Aurora – you're wrong. Just start getting ready earlier so you have enough time to finish those things before you drive around Aurora.

The professional here at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Aurora wand you to remember that driving is probably the most dangerous thing you'll do all day – so don't make it any worse. Use these tips to keep you and your loved ones safer behind the wheel in Aurora.
