If you've ever had your fanny parked in the driver's seat for an extended period of time, you know what a figurative and literal pain driving can be. Whether it's lengthy daily commutes or repetitive road trips, hours behind the wheel can take a toll. These 18 products for people who drive a lot can ease the burden a bit by offering extra comfort, convenience, and even entertainment. I don't know about you, but I'd definitely take all the help I can get, making that mind-numbingly boring four-and-a-half-hour drive from Las Vegas to Los Angeles.

It's not just the inescapable lack of excitement that makes excessive driving difficult to tolerate. According to research, it's truly connected to poor health. One study published in PLoS One found longer driving times are associated with a higher likelihood of smoking, a lack of physical activity, insufficient sleep, and poorer physical and mental health overall. The worst and most consistent effects were documented for those driving more than 120 minutes per day.

If you don't have much of a choice but to drive a lot throughout the week, at the very least, you can make the journey easier — and safer — with these 18 products to equip your car with.
