Thank you so much for sharing your story. I think that its great how you recognize when and what stresses you and then take steps to determine what to do. I started to always use the WAZE app when I drive because it directs me around traffic jams and lets me feel more in control. Plus, I've learned some amazing short cuts with it. Please continue to share your story and helpful tips with other veterans. Things that you now know are helpful can make an amazing difference for someone just returning from deployment! Finally, please wear your seat belt! You are in control, but how about the other driver?
Thanks for sharing your story in USAA Community. First, you are already off to an improved safe driving experience because you accurately realize the differences in driving on deployment vs. non-deployed life. Second, there is a new threat adjustment in driving in a non-deployed location – the threat of car accidents – this is where you need to wear your seat belt at all times. Finally, think about routes, time of day, and lane selection if you want to drive slower. Driving in an underused route or earlier / later in the day can help make driving speed less of a factor. Please, let me know how it goes and thanks for driving safe!
