On the Road Again

Taking a road trip is a great way to celebrate summer and see new places. Here's what you should not do if you want to have a great trip:
Get a speeding ticket. It's more important to get to your destination safely than quickly. Besides, half the fun is getting there, isn't it?

Be on your iPad. Keeping your mobile devices in play may keep you and your loved ones entertained, but it prevents valuable bonding time and opportunities to make memorable moments together.

Be a music snob. You're not going to love every song someone wants to listen to, just as not everyone in the car will love what you want to blast through the speakers. Taking turns listening to everyone's favorite tunes is the best way to keep everyone happy.

Overeat. It's easy to go for the super-size meal so you can snack on leftovers to hold you over until the next stop, but those calories can really add up.

Drink too much caffeine. Staving off sleep can be dangerous. If you're tired, switch drivers or spring for a hotel. 

Most importantly, don't forget to get your vehicle in road-trip shape. Make an appointment with our service center to make sure your BMW is ready to go.

In a Fender Bender? Here's What To Do

We hope you’re never involved in a car accident. Unfortunately, they do happen. In addition to practicing safe driving, it’s best to be prepared for the unexpected. Keep the following in mind if you ever get in a fender bender:

Stay calm. You don’t want to say or do anything that may worsen an already troubling situation.

Stay at the scene. Make sure you are in a safe place either in or near your vehicle. If you or the other driver(s) need medical attention, call 911 immediately.

Report it. No matter how minor the accident may be, failure to report it to law enforcement is against the law. You also need to exchange insurance information.

Take photos. Use your cell-phone camera, or better yet, have a disposable camera on hand for these situations. Take photos of both vehicles and the area in which the accident occurred.

Take notes. Text yourself or keep a notebook handy so you can jot down notes about what you were doing before the crash, which direction you were headed, when the other driver came into the scene, etc.

Stay on top of it. Keep in constant contact with your insurance company and the repair shop to make sure everything is happening in a timely manner so you can get on with your life.

Pain-free Driving Tips

Driving can be a pain, literally. Sitting for long periods of time can lead to cramps and aches that make it difficult to drive comfortably. A few changes in behavior can make a huge improvement in how you feel during and after your drive.
  • Slide your pelvis backward on the seat, align it with your torso and pull your feet toward the seat. You may find you need to scoot your seat closer to the pedals to reach them.
  • Relax your back by letting your ribs drop toward your pelvis rather than lifting your chest, and don't push your shoulders or head toward the back of your seat. 
  • Realign your shoulders whenever you're feeling achy by doing a shoulder roll with each side, up and down.
  • Gently stretch your neck and head periodically, and keep your head aligned with your spine. Leaning your head too far forward or sticking your chin up can cause compression and discomfort.
