How to make car journeys easier for children, and make car accident claims in St Albans
Car journeys can be incredibly boring and wearing on children. Many children find that they get car sick when travelling long distances, and this is perhaps because they are less used to travelling or have less of a grip on their nausea reflexes. On top of this, when children become bored they can get loud or start to move around a lot, which is dangerous for everyone in the vehicle as it can mean that the driver isn’t able to focus properly on the road. If you are driving with a child or children in the car, here are some ways to make sure that they are safe, comfortable and entertained.
- Give them plenty to do. Make sure that you have a box in the back of the car which provides your children with games and activities that they can do during any journey. Make sure that the activities you include are relaxed and quiet, so that children don’t become too rambunctious and end up causing problems for the driver.
- Provide them with music or a DVD. With portable music players and DVD players available for low prices, it is perfectly easy to give children something to watch or listen to in the back of the car. Not only will this keep them entertained but most importantly it will keep them quiet.
- Make lots of stops. Kids may find it easier, especially if they suffer from travel sickness, if you can make lots of stops where they can get out and stretch their legs, get their head to feel less dizzy, and just get some fresh air.
- Provide drinks and snacks. If it isn’t going to be easy to pull over for a long time, such as when you are on the motorway, make sure that there are drinks and snacks in easy reach so that kids can have something to eat when they need to.
