How to get to work safely and quickly
If you want to keep your job then it is important that you get to work on time every day, or at least most of the time. Annoyingly, as most jobs start at the same time each morning, you are trying to get to your job at exactly the same time as everyone else, and even though public transport runs more often and so on, just the sheer amount of people all on the roads and trains at the same time makes it difficult to get anywhere. Rush hour is a common time for accidents, as people are stressed and in a hurry, but it is not worth getting yourself into an accident simply to get to work on time. Here are some ways to get to work on time every day, and still stay safe.
- Leave earlier. Although it may seem frustrating to have to leave your house earlier when this will most likely just get you into work early, it may be worthwhile for a shorter, less stressful journey. If you have plenty of time then you can also take your time, and won’t be rushing from one place to another.
- Ask for flexible hours. Avoiding rush hour can save you a lot of hassle, and you can still put in the hours you need to work. Start work at 10 and finish at 7 instead of starting at 9 and finishing at 6, and you should avoid the rush hour at both ends of the day.
- Try a bike, car pool or walk. Instead of risking the roads or public transport, think about sharing a car with other colleagues coming in the same direction, or riding a bike through the local park to avoid the road altogether. If you live close enough, then you could walk to work and make it your daily exercise, getting fitter at the same time as avoiding the early morning traffic.
