We’ve all heard the statistics that link driver distraction and car crashes. The first thing that comes to mind is of course, cell phones – but a cell phone is far from the only thing that can distract a driver. Impatient or squabbling children can be a far greater distraction, and while you might have car insurance, Philadelphia parents would no doubt prefer to keep the kids entertained and comfortable and avoid an accident and insurance claim. Here are some ideas on how to keep them busy.
Because of the limited space and movement restriction of passengers, many typical games cannot be played in transit. “I Spy” is a great way to pass the time and easy enough for young children to join in.
For quiet fun, pack a variety of coloring and reading books. Many children can be entertained by these for hours.
Do not forget to take snacks – healthy ones of course! Everyone get grumpy when they are hungry, and that trip home from school can be a nightmare with tired, hungry kids on board.
It goes without saying that you should always have up to date car insurance in Philadelphia. Philadelphia requires all drivers to have a certain amount of coverage, so make sure you have it!
