Even though concentrating on your driving is crucial on long journeys, there’s something to be said for some kind of distraction. But only the kind that allows you to focus on the road and traffic around you. “Long journeys can be monotonous, which makes it hard to concentrate. Listening to the radio or a chatty passenger can paradoxically help you concentrate,” Mulač says. If you’re listening to music, don’t choose anything too relaxing! Listening to audiobooks or various podcasts can be a good option. You can use your mobile phone to listen to your favourite songs or spoken word – you can connect it to your car’s system via Bluetooth.
Night driving is a specific discipline. Traffic tends to be lighter at night, but visibility is much worse. Modern cars with advanced headlights help a lot, but even so here are a few more tips to make night driving easier. Make sure you use your full-beam lights properly, dipping them as soon as you see an oncoming car or approach another car from behind. Modern LED Matrix lights are a great help – they can automatically dim segments of the headlight that could dazzle other drivers.
ŠKODA SUPERB and the Smart Light Assist system - a very good helper at night, but only for alert drivers.
