How to avoid in-car arguments – try to avoid traveling during peak traffic times.

Weekends away, a simple country drive, traffic jams and those big driving holidays can all be the perfect catalyst, or stage for in-car arguments.

So, how do you those dreaded avoid in-car arguments?

Well, here are a few things you could try;

  • Plan ahead and check your quickest and most stress-free route beforehand
  • Avoid traveling through peak hour traffic
  • Try to avoid any major traffic hotspots that could cause delays
  • Pick your break destinations in advance so everyone knows when and how many times you’ll be stopping
  • Prepare entertainment and make sure there’s plenty for passengers, particularly children, to do. Make a music playlist beforehand with everyone picking a couple of their favourite songs, download films onto tablets and research some easy to play game ideas, such as ‘I spy’ or ‘Who am I?’
  • Keep the peace with a few savoury and sweet snacks to keep bickering caused by hunger pangs at bay.

Good luck!
