Driving in Arkansas from day to day is a beautiful thing but can also be pretty frustrating and sometimes even challenging – and in some cases traveling the great roads of the Natural State can be deadly. Be careful out there and survive Arkansas roads by heeding to some of this driving advice!
5. Pay Attention
This rule definitely applies to driving anywhere, but especially in Arkansas. The Natural State is full of curves and construction; at any given moment a glance at the cell phone can turn a joyride into a terrible accident.
4. Age Is An Important Number (Just Like the Speed Limit)
Seriously, if you feel the need to brag about your driving skills at a certain age, you're likely either too young to be behind the wheel or you're at the stage in life where it's time to ask others for help getting from point A to point B.
3. Wake Up
Arkansas has a great number of 18-wheelers that ride along the roads with everyday commuters. Truckers are required to be alert on the road to keep their jobs and to help keep everyone safe. Everyday commuters should also shoulder their share of driving responsibly by getting a proper amount of sleep before getting on the road too - caffeine can only take you so far. Not everyone's job depends on driving safely, but many lives depend on safe drivers!
2. Calm Down
There's a LOT of things about driving around Arkansas that will frustrate you besides the drivers (construction, obstructions, animals, etc.) - but it doesn't have to escalate. Take a moment to remember it's more important to arrive alive than to get ahead of (or even with) a fellow driver.
1. Pay Insurance
You really never know when you'll need those all-important insurance papers when it comes to your health, your boat, your house, or your car, now do you?
Of course, this advice applies not just to Arkansas but wherever your travels take you. Be safe out there while driving around the Natural State or elsewhere!
