The Dangers of Drowsy Driving

new, used Land Rover, Range Rover dealer, Land Rover Frisco, Frisco, TexasSleep deprivation can impair the brain just as much as drinking can, and unfortunately drowsy driving is a serious problem that leads to thousands of automobile crashes each year.  We at Land Rover Frisco in Frisco, Texas would like to provide you with some key warning signs that it might be time to pull off the road, as well as some tips on how to stay awake and alert while behind the wheel.

It may be time to take a break from driving if:

  • You find yourself daydreaming, wandering or having disconnected thoughts
  • You have trouble remembering the last few miles driven
  • You find yourself missing exits or traffic signs
  • You find you are yawning repeatedly or rubbing your eyes a lot
  • You have trouble keeping your head up
  • Your eyelids become very heavy and find yourself  drifting in and out of lanes 
  • You are feeling restless and irritable 

At Land Rover Frisco in Frisco, Texas, we would like you to follow these simple tips so that you don’t fall asleep while driving. 

Get plenty of sleep before a big trip.  Avoid alcoholic beverages and heavy foods.  Beware of medications that can impair your driving ability.  If you are driving long distance, try and stop every 2 hours or so to rest.  Pull off the road in a safe area and take a nap. Wait at least 10 minutes after waking up to see how alert you are. If you still feel sleepy and groggy, then find a place to sleep for an hour or for the night.  If possible, drive with a companion and switch driving when necessary.  Talk with your fellow passengers to keep your brain going and eyes open.   Keep the temperature cool in your vehicle. Keep your eyes moving and check your mirrors often.  Turn up the radio and roll the windows down to keep you more alert and awake. 

At Land Rover Frisco in Frisco, Texas, your safety is our number one concern, so for the sake of yourself, your fellow occupants, and your fellow drivers out there, please take care whenever you are behind the wheel and make sure to never drive when you know there might be a chance that you could fall asleep.

The 2012 Range Rover Evoque

2012 Range Rover Evoque

The 2012 Range Rover Evoque is in stock at Land Rover of Frisco it has been called the ‘2012 SUV of the Year’, and for good reason.

The new 2012 Range Rover Evoque is a different kind of Land Rover, a compact, crossover aimed at urbanites who want luxury, sport-utility usefulness, and reasonable fuel economy in a compact package. The new Evoque wraps it all in a refreshingly different exterior design. Its width and low roofline contributes to the Evoque’s athletic look and aggressive stance. Combined with a sophisticated full-time four-wheel drive system, good ground clearance, and a short wheelbase, the Evoque can tackle some pretty tough off-road terrain. That sustains Land Rover’s tradition of exceptional go-anywhere proficiency, an area of performance that is absent in the pedigrees of competitors, which have no off-road pretensions whatsoever.

The Evoque delivers cargo versatility with a hatchback design. Fold the rear seatbacks forward and cargo capacity expands exponentially, the interior also measures up well in terms of roominess for four passengers. The Evoque’s interior appointments are arguably more upscale than the others in its class, even in base trim. That’s why Land Rover applied its upscale Range Rover badge to the model. The Evoque’s tidy dimensions pay off with low curb weight, which adds up to respectable fuel economy ratings: 18 mpg city, 28 mpg highway, according to the EPA. Distinctively styled and equipped with a luxurious interior, the three- or five-door Evoque is intended to boldly go where Range Rover has never gone before.

Standard Equipment

The base “Pure” trim includes a long list of features including keyless entry and engine start, power-adjustable leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power tailgate, 19-inch alloy wheels and an 11-speaker audio system with an eight-inch touchscreen. On the dynamic side, all Evoques feature hill-hold and Hill Descent Control along with Land Rover’s terrain response system featuring unique driving modes for sand, mud and snow. Standard safety features include stability and traction controls, roll stability control, Trailer Stability Assist (to help when towing), and six airbags.

Optional Equipment

Options are grouped into three trim levels. The Pure Premium trim adds a five-camera surround-view system, navigation, adaptive xenon headlights and a 17-speaker audio system. From there buyers can move up to either the sporty Dynamic Premium or the luxurious Prestige Premium trims, each offering a variety of interior and exterior upgrades. Lastly, the optional Adaptive Dynamics system serves to improve ride and handling by way of magneto-rheological dampers that continually adjust their firmness.
