How to survive rush-hour traffic…

So with the new job I’ve had to (ugh) go back to a commute. And with that daily drive, has reminded me not only of why I stopped commuting 9 years ago, but also how to make this one less stressful.

One of the answers is simple: when in stop-and-go traffic, get behind a semi.

But they are so slow! Actually, when you are in stop-and-go traffic, they are no slower…but they have one huge advantage (aside from the whole survival in an accident thing going for them), and that is this: because they are so big, they intentionally do not make sudden stops and starts….they ease into braking and ease into acceleration. And in doing so, you will be safer–and less stressed, because you don’t have to worry about those things like you would from the silly Lexus SUV driver in front of you, or the crazy people dodging in and out of lanes.

    When I have a long trip on the freeway I ALWAYS slip in behind a semi. I agree, much less stressful driving back there.
