How to behave when carpooling – personal injury lawyer in Osmaston
Carpooling helps to save money and also helps to save the environment. If you are travelling to work with a group of fellow employees who are all coming the same way as you, then you will all save money on your journeys, as well as taking more cars off of the road and easing the traffic congestion that can cause accidents and make you late. However, when you are carpooling, there are certain ways to behave that will keep you from falling out with the people you are travelling with, and keep you all safe.
- Fill up before you leave. Maybe the night before when you are travelling home, or before you pick up your first passenger, fill the car up with petrol. This stops you have to stop for petrol on the way, and potentially making everyone late, and is a simple courtesy that your passengers will appreciate.
- Don’t be a backseat driver. If someone else is driving the car then sit and practice good passenger etiquette by allowing them to take the lead. Shouting out about hazards or where they should be going will only frustrate the driver, and seem as though you think you are a better driver than them.
- Save breakfast for your desk. Eating breakfast in the car can be unpleasant for other passengers, who may not feel up to smelling food or watching you eat first thing in the morning.
- Don’t talk too much. Some people prefer to chat whilst they travel, but it is always best for the driver if everyone stays quiet and allows them to focus on the road. If you want to chat to your colleagues you can always wait until you get to work.
