Tips from Tindall
Summer Vacation - Road Trip Safety

If you're planning on hitting the highway for a family vacation consider these important car travel safety tips to help get you to your destination safely.


 

Take the Appropriate Steps to Stay Safe on the Road



 

On the Highway:

 

  • Buckle up, slow down, don't drive impaired.
  • Be well rested and alert.
  • Use caution in work zones.
  • Give your full attention to the road. Avoid distractions such as cell phones.
  • Observe speed limits - driving too fast or too slow can increase your chance of being in a collision.
  • Make frequent stops. During long trips, rotate drivers. If you're too tired to drive, stop and get some rest.
  • Be respectful of other motorists and follow the rules of the road.
  • Don't follow another vehicle too closely.
  • If you plan on drinking, designate a driver who won't drink.
  • Clean your headlights, taillights, signal lights and windows to help you see, especially at night.
  • Turn your headlights on as dusk approaches, or if you are using your windshield wipers due to inclement weather.
  • Don't overdrive your headlights.
  • If you have car trouble, pull off the road as far as possible.
  • Be careful getting out of your car even on the side of the road, as many motorists have been struck by passing cars and suffered catastrophic injuries and even died.

Prepare for the Unexpected:

  • Carry a Disaster Supplies Kit in your trunk.
  • Pack high protein snacks, water, First Aid kit, flashlight, small battery-operated radio, an emergency contact card with names and phone numbers, extra prescription medications and important documents or information you may need.
  • Let someone know your destination, your route, and when you expect to arrive. If your car gets stuck along the way, help can be sent along your predetermined route.
  • Find out what disasters may occur in the place where you are traveling, especially if they are disasters you have never experienced before. Find out how you would get information in the event of a disaster (local radio systems, emergency alert systems).
  • Pay attention to the weather forecast for your destination. Travel and weather web sites can help you avoid storms and other regional challenges that could impact your safety.
  • Don't let your vehicle's gas tank get too low.
  • If you are taking your pet with you, there are special things you should know to make your trip more enjoyable.
