Drive Time Doesn't Have To Be a Bad Time
Products and tips to make your daily commute a little bit
less of a grind.
Did you know that the average American spends more time driving to work than taking a vacation from work?
These days, the average commute is 24.3 minutes - each way.
Depending on where you live, that figure could be the stuff of dreams, but
that's the average. Add it up and you get a nation of people spending at
least 100 + hours commuting each year. If
the average job allows two weeks (80 hours) of vacation time each year, that means
a lot of people spend more time sitting in the car than relaxing at the beach.
We're not traffic engineers or travel agents, but we do know
a thing or two about automotive accessories. Commuting will never be a day at
the beach, but you can enhance your comfort, safety and efficiency behind the
wheel with products from AutoSport. If you're going to spend 100 or so hours in the car every year, why not
make those hours as pleasant as possible?
For most of us, commuting means heavy traffic. And whether
that traffic is moving quickly or slowly, it's important to be alert and aware on
How many morning rush hours are slowed to a crawl after
drivers change lanes without seeing the car in their blind spot? Visibility is
an important part of safe driving, especially when you're merging and changing
lanes on a busy freeway. We offer a great selection of driving mirrors to widen your view
and help you see what's going on around you. And just in case another driver is
about to cut in front of you, one of our powerful air horns will let
them know you're there.
Blinding sunlight is another frequently-mentioned cause of
drive-time accidents. We've all had to flip down our visors; squint through our sunglasses and hope the cars around us were doing the same. It's a dangerous
situation and your car's regular sun visors are rarely up to the task. That's
why we recommend our easy-to-use (and easy to install) sun visors.
Accidents will happen, though, and it's important to be
prepared in case of emergency. From first aid kits to emergency tools
to flashlights to roadside visibility aids, AutoSport has a great
selection of safety products to make sure you have the right equipment
when things go wrong.
We've all watched with a mixture of fear and bemusement as
the driver up ahead leans over and starts groping for a far-away phone, CD, map
or doughnut. Frankly, most of us have probably been that person at some time or another. But veering
wildly while trying to find something in the passenger's seat isn't good
driving and it certainly isn't safe driving. Every commuter knows that there
are things we need while we're driving. We always mean to grab those things before we pull out of the
driveway, but we often don't.
Our line of auto organizers helps you keep the things
you need where you need them. With these helpful products, your phones,
maps, pens, and even trash can be neatly sorted and close at hand. When
everything is organized, you can get to what you need without taking your eyes
off the road. And if your commute is anything like ours, that's something
you'll be thankful for.
Studies show that sitting at a desk for prolonged periods
can result in muscle fatigue, stiffness, back pain and reduced circulation. Sitting
behind the wheel during an extended commute isn't any better. Improve the
quality of your drive and reduce its impact on your body with driving
comfort products from AutoSport.
Our selection of lumbar and seat cushions can make
long drives easier on your body. With a variety of ergonomic designs to choose
from, you're sure to find the one that best suits your needs. We also offer a comprehensive line of neck
support pillows, armrests, console cushions and seat belt
covers that can add comfort to your daily drive.
Daily commuting can also cause wear and tear on your car's
seats and floors, and that in turn can cost you money at trade-in time. Protect
your car's interior from coffee spills and other minor catastrophes with
custom-fit seat covers and floor mats from AutoSport.
We can't make your commute any shorter, but we can help you
make it more comfortable.
Sometimes, the little things can make a big difference.
That's why we offer a number of problem-solving items that really can improve
the quality of your daily routine. Every commute is different, but every commuter wants to drive in comfort, arrive
safely and be ready for the day to come.
Even if you have been in a car for an hour, you don't want
to look like it, so we offer handy coat hangers to keep your jacket or
winter coat neat and wrinkle-free. Everybody likes a morning beverage, but
nobody likes a lapful of coffee, so we offer spill-proof beverage containers.
Those are just a few of the many ingenious travel and convenience products
you'll find at AutoSport.
Back-seat DVD players are everywhere these days, and while
they're great for keeping the kids amused on long trips, what about the
grown-up who drives to work each morning? While we would never advocate
watching a movie while you drive, we're big fans of in-car entertainment and
we've assembled a great selection of items guaranteed to make the miles go by
For many of us, a great morning of music means plugging in
the trusty iPod. Protect your tunes on the road while maintaining peak power with an iPod Charger. Of course, with all the
electronic gadgets drivers use today, one 12-volt outlet sometimes isn't
enough, so we carry three- and four-outlet plugs to keep everything charged
and ready, plus versatile electronic holders to keep them secure on the
Getting there can be half the fun, but getting there quickly
is nice, too. That's why we carry a top-quality selection of high-performance radar
detectors that let you know what's up ahead.
There are things you already have, and then there are things
that do the job a little bit better than those things. These are those. Even
the simplest of everyday items--shoes, sunglasses and even umbrellas--can
make a difference in your level of comfort and enjoyment behind the wheel
Hard-soled or high-heeled shoes can slip off
the pedals and cause unintended acceleration or braking. A good pair of driving
shoes will provide the comfortable fit and proper heel support you need while
driving, and tidy sole sides will keep your feet from snagging on the pedals.
Best of all, a well-designed pair of driving shoes will also give you hours of
comfort, whether you're walking the pits or walking through the office parking
Sunglasses are great for those bright, sunny days, but when
sky is grey, you're still exposed to harmful UV rays. On those foggy, smoggy,
rainy or snowy days, our Anti-Glare Driving Glasses relax tired,
strained eyes, enhance vision and improve safety. They're also great for
reading, computer work, golf, car repair or any other activity that requires
We also offer Ono polarized bifocal sunglasses, which
have the readers built-in. It's a new dimension of comfort, convenience,
and style--and without the prescription price! You'll love the convenience of not
having to switch glasses every time you have a detailed task to perform
If the last stage of your commute involves a walk through an
occasionally rainy parking lot, you'll love our collapsible Wind Pro
Automatic Umbrella. This compact umbrella is wind-proof to 33 mph, and
features a one-touch open and close mechanism. You made it that far in comfort
and style – why get soaked on the way to your desk?
