Tefillat HaDerech While Driving


Once I week, I have to drive alone a distance that requires me to recite tefilat haderekh. I have been unable to memorize the text of tefilat hadarekh, even though I have tried. It is obviously unsafe to read it out of a siddur or on a printed sheet of paper while driving. There is no safe place to pull over to recite it on my route. It is a busy interstate highway. I remember some, but not all words. What do I do about this?



  1. The following is taken from the OU site (www.ou.org):

    If you will certainly leave the city limits at some point in your journey, you may say Tefillat HaDerech as soon as you start your journey (when you leave your house or get in your car, etc.).
