It’s not always easy to tell when you’re too tired to drive. Here are some signs that it’s time to pull over:
Difficulty focusing, frequent blinking, or heavy eyelids
Daydreaming; wandering/disconnected thoughts
Trouble remembering the last few miles driven; missing exits or traffic signs
Yawning repeatedly or rubbing your eyes
Trouble keeping your head up
Drifting from your lane, tailgating, or hitting a shoulder rumble strip
Feeling restless and irritable
The best way to make sure your mind and body are in optimal driving shape is to plan ahead and get 7-8 hours of sleep before your drive. Other methods include:
The pre-drive nap: taking a short nap before a road trip can help make up for a short night’s sleep.
The mid-drive nap: if you find yourself drowsy while driving, pull over to take a short nap of 20 minutes. Make sure you are in a safe location and remember you’ll be groggy for 15 minutes or so after waking up.
The Buddy system: It’s safest to drive with a partner on long trips. Pull over every two hours and switch drivers, while the other takes a nap if possible.
Don’t rush. Better to arrive at your destination safe than on time.
Do not drink alcohol. Even very small amounts of alcohol will enhance drowsiness.
Don’t drive between midnight and 6 a.m. Because of your body’s biological rhythm, this is a time when sleepiness is most intense.
Drink caffeine: caffeine improves alertn
Florey Insurance Agency (570-587-2615) – YOUR INSURANCE MALL
You care about your pets, and you want them to be healthy too!
If your pet gets sick then you could be faced with expensive bills, here are a few reasons to consider pet insurance:
1. Dogs & cats get sick
Just like human children, pet children can also get sick at a moment’s notice
2. Dogs & cats get injured and have accidents
Whether your pet is mischievous, brave, or just unlucky, accidents can happen at any time including broken bones, torn nails, lacerations, or getting hit by a car, just to list a few.
3. It’s the responsible thing to do!
We have health insurance, car insurance, and homeowners insurance to protect us financially against the unexpected, and pet insurance is no different. Veterinary care is rising in cost and for good reason, the care available to pets is often on par with human medical care.
4. Vet bills can be huge and come at unexpected times
Life is full of surprises but protecting your finances with pet insurance will ultimately help you protect your pets.
5. Savings account vs. pet insurance
Purchasing an insurance plan is a great way to ensure you can afford the best veterinary care as soon as your pet needs it, rather than a savings account which can take years to save enough to cover even just one large vet bill.
Keep your pet healthy with pet insurance through Florey. Fill out the form below of call us at 1-877-503-8543 to find out how!
