When to drive vs. taking public transport, and how to make Dumbarton car accident claims
If you are able to drive then you are more likely to decide to drive whenever you can. Driving means that you have the flexibility to leave when you want to, take breaks as and when you please and so on. It also means that you can take whomever you want with you on your journey, and it may even be cheaper.
However, there are some occasions where it actually makes more sense for you to take public transport, and this is something that you should think carefully about before you make any long journey. Here are some ways for you to decide which is the better option for you.
When to drive
- When you need flexibility. Driving means that you are able to control where you go, when you go and how often you stop, which can be useful if you are travelling with children or those with travel sickness.
- When you need to get around your destination. If you are likely to need a car when you get to your destination, as well as to get there, it is much easier to take your own than to hire one when you arrive.
- When you know the area well. You may find it easier to drive if you know the area well, so that you don’t have to take a longer route to get where you are going.
When to use public transport
- When you need to save money. Because on public transport you can fit more people in on one tank of petrol. things like coach journeys can often be much quicker than taking the car.
- If you will be drinking. If the place that you are visiting will have alcohol and there is a chance that you will be drinking, it is worth your while to take public transport to avoid being tempted to drink and drive.
- If you are travelling in a very large group. The larger the group. the easier it is to keep everyone together by going on public transport.
