No one enjoys a long car ride. Whether you’re with someone or if you’re travelling alone, long car rides can be dull, boring, and can truly ruin your day. For the driver, long drives can even be enough to make one fall asleep at the wheel. If you want to avoid this, then look below for a comprehensive guide that will detail how to make long commutes pass quickly.
Bring a Friend
If you have an appointment that’s a few towns over then you can easily bring a friend who is willing to help you pass the time. By just having someone to talk to, the time will pass so much quick and not only this, but you’ll have less chances of falling asleep at the wheel because the person driving with you can keep you occupied.
Play Some Music
If you’re driving alone, then playing some upbeat music can be the difference between your drive feeling like five hours or one hour. If you’re with another person, then you can spend the drive singing and dancing with your friend and/or loved one so that in almost no time, you’ll be at your destination.
Play the License Plate Game
If you haven’t heard of the license plate game then you haven’t truly lived. Of course, it should be played with another person in the car, but here’s how it goes:
The last three characters on a license plate are letters. For each one of these letters, you come up with a word so that the final product is a full sentence. If, say, the last three letters of a license plate are “AYS”, you could make the sentence, “Are you serious.”
This game is a great way to pass time whether you’re alone, with a friend, or with your children.
One of the worst things about a long car ride is when you run out of food, or when you’re bored and you have to sit, or drive, the entire time with nothing to do. If you bring some healthy snacks then you’ll have the opportunity to catch up on some nutrients that you’d be missing out on and you’ll have something to do.
Bring a Book
If you’re the passenger of a car and you’re expecting to have a very long car ride in front of you then you can always bring a book; after all, the most common complaint that people have about reading is that they don’t have enough time. With a long car ride, you have plenty of time to read the rest of that novel you’ve been putting off or to begin reading a whole new one!
Long car rides will be some of the most boring times of your life. Whether you’re the driver or the passenger, there are several ways in which you can try to make the time pass quicker, from bringing food and a book in the car to playing a fun car game.
