As Qatar grows and expands, we see a mad rush in infrastructure projects, most visibly in road construction. Roads connect places and road design is an important factor in travel efficiency, but it’s not the only one. How we drive also contributes to the efficiency, and hence cost-effectiveness of our travel.

Try smart driving practices for better fuel efficiency and lower carbon emissions, saving money along the way.

As we navigate physical social distancing and travel restrictions, these COVID-19 times offer an opportunity to reflect on our daily habits and behaviours that are often made on auto-pilot. We have the choice to shift our thinking, train in resilience, and zoom out for a broader post-COVID19 perspective, and to plan ahead for our new daily routines that become the new normal.

Which one of these items are smart driving practices?

  1. Slow down
  2. Maintain a constant speed, avoiding excessive accelerating and braking
  3. Travel outside of peak traffic times
  4. Avoid known areas of heavy traffic
