Journeys of The Zoo spends close to six months a year on the road. That makes for a lot of driving. Almost all of the responsibility lies with Ed which means,
Over 10,000 Kilometres a Year!
I was concerned when I read a recent survey by Insurance Hunter that polled 1,003 Ontario parents and found that "One-Third of Men Polled Have Nodded Off Behind Wheel". I could hardly believe that the rates for Men were so high (30%) and especially in comparison to Women (only 14%)!
The survey also reveals that "young parents are more likely to drive tired than older counterparts". Statistically, Ed has a lower chance of nodding off (because while he's young at heart, he isn't young in age). However, that doesn't mean that it couldn't happen to Ed or another driver on the road.
I highly suggest that you to take a look at Insurance Hunter’s safety survey and see if you or your family are at risk and what to do to avoid any unnecessary accidents. I know that I learned a lot.
I find that being organized, especially for our 5-day trip to Mexico helps minimize Ed's fatigue. Yes, the entire Zoo (including two dogs and a cat) drive to Mexico. The survey also mentions some strategies that we implement such as; setting off at smart travel times (between 6 a.m. and noon) and ensure that the driver is well rested with plenty of planned breaks.
Until I found this survey, I hadn't actually heard of Insurance Hunter. In case you haven't either, their website states;
"Insurance Hunter is an online insurance brokerage that provides Ontario residents with hassle-free, online auto, home and travel insurance quotes from Ontario's leading insurance companies."
Their website also says that you can get three quotes in three minutes so I thought that I'd try it out. The application process took about three minutes, was predictable (I've received quotes before, not from Insurance Hunter) and all the information they asked for I had on hand. As advertised, my three auto insurance quotes were presented to me immediately on the screen and I found them to be competitive.
There's always something going on at The Zoo so when I'm presented with an easy and no-fuss way to ensure that we are properly insured at the best price possible, I'm interested in finding out more. I encourage you to visit their website (www.InsuranceHunter.ca) because you just might find that,
Insurance Hunter is for You.
Besos, The Zoo
