Tyger’s Diary: Dealing with distractions

There are a lot of things that can distract you when you’re driving – anything, in fact, that takes your attention away from the road ahead - and not all distractions are obvious.

In this video, Tyger gives advice on how to keep focused behind the wheel.


5 Tips to help you avoid distractions

  1. Keep your music at a level that doesn’t make it a distraction.
  2. Take away the temptation to answer your phone by keeping it on silent and putting it away out of sight – if you’re caught using your phone while driving you could face a fine and points on your licence
  3. Get the sat nav set up and running before you drive off so you're not playing around with it on the move
  4. If you don’t have a sat nav, plan your route in advance and pick a passenger to navigate. (Just one will do – you don’t want people arguing over directions!)
  5. Don’t be afraid to ask friends to keep the noise down so you can concentrate.
