My Ultimate Summer Driving Playlist

The kids are off school, the weather is getting hotter, that can only mean one thing...

And as the Summer holidays get started, so does the car. That means I have a responsibility to make sure we have an Ultimate Summer Driving Playlist that suits everyone who is travelling in the vehicle!  It's usually just Misteright, The Boy and Me but we often have extra passengers when we go for days out in our Big Red Bus of Fun.  Good job we have a stereo that plays MP3 from a flash disc.  That means we can fit a whopping amount of music on there, which is the main reason that my playlist is so long. My second reason is that we are a family of music lovers and we LOVE most genres of music. Some people call it eclectic, we just call it a broad range of tastes!  Some songs are meant to be played loud but we are usually that annoying family who are singing along loudly with all the windows open! I have even been known to teach kids the words to songs by The Levellers just so they can join in!  On a serious note though, having a driving playlist could actually help save your life! THINK! research suggests that almost 20% of accidents that occur on major roads are related to sleep or tiredness.  Long motorway journeys can lead to a lack of concentration so take a few precautions as a preventative measure! Listen to music that you love to help you stay alert and focussed whilst driving and STOP when you feel tired, the cost could be huge.  Be a responsible driver!
