With the summer months coming up, there will be plenty of road trips happening. If you’re planning a road trip this summer, you’ll want to make sure you get there safely with these road trip safety tips.
Road Trip Safety Tips
As soon as everyone gets in the car make sure all seat belts are fastened. It can save your life so make sure you’re buckled in tight.
Before any road trip, make sure your vehicle is up to date on everything from oil change, wiper fluid, and air in tires. It also doesn’t hurt to have a mechanic take a look at everything to make sure it is good to travel in.
Enter destination into GPS ahead of time and look over the route rather than trying to scramble and doing it on the way there. Also, make sure you have all the supplies you need in the car in case something happens along the way. Some supplies may include jumper cables, flares, tools, first aid kit, blankets, and water.
Fill Er Up.
The night before, fill your vehicle with a full tank of gas. While you’re at the gas station wash your windows and check your oil to make sure your vehicle is ready to go the next day.
Get Plenty of Sleep.
To make sure you get to your destination safely make sure you get plenty of rest so you are alert on the road. I know it may be hard to go to sleep as everyone is excited but try for 8 hours of sleep.
Get Rid of Distractions.
Bring plenty of things to keep everyone in the car occupied so there are no distractions along the way. If you have kids you can make activity bags up and give them a new thing every hour so they don’t get bored. We like to play games in the car such as Restaurant Bingo. You can cross off the restaurants as you see them and whoever yells out BINGO gets a prize Or if you have a DVD player, be sure to have someone in charge of the movies so they can change them out and play them when needed.
