We all hate traffic – it sucks up precious time that we’d much rather spend with our family, a good book, or, lets be honest, a massage. The worst is getting stuck in traffic with our kids! All you want to do is get home, even if you have to take a route outside the normal. Even if it means that it could possibly be a longer route and sometimes even if it means you could get lost. It’s worth the risk!
As one of the world’s leading traffic intelligence companies with one of the largest historical databases of traffic, TomTom GO 500/600 has the most up-to-date accurate traffic information that can help you easily navigate around traffic and get home (or to your destination) faster so you can spend less time on the road and more time doing the things you love!
I can’t imagine not having my TomTom GO 500/600 for traffic jams or construction that I need to find my way around, it covers 99.9% of the roads, which is more than any other traffic service available!
There’s also a TomTom MyDrive App that allows you to plan your route before you leave the house and send it to your device so you are ready to go once you get in the car! How genius is that?!
Things to Do with Kids When Stuck in Traffic
Listen to Music & Sing – Yep, that’s right! Crank up the tunes and sing at the top of your lungs with your kids! Who cares if the people in the car next to you think you’re crazy, your kids will have a blast and think Mom is so much fun!
Play i-spy – We play this on long trips too! Take turns picking something in the car and have each other guys what you picked. Who ever guesses first gets to pick next! We can have hours of fun with this!
Write Notes – Give them your Post It Notes and pens out of your purse and have them write notes to each other or pictures. My kids LOVE Post It Notes so this can entertain them forever!
Keep a Stash – Keep a stash of stickers, snacks, color books etc. in your glove box for emergencies! If all else fails pull them out!
With these tips and having a TomTom GO 500/600 in your car, you’ll be set for the next time you’re stuck in traffic!
