How to Make Your Road Trip Safer

No matter what time of the year it is, road trips are a part of the North American pastime. Whether you are visiting family in another state, going on a scenic adventure, or heading to a special destination for a weekend getaway, it’s important that you stay informed about road trip safety.

Prior to your journey, first check to ensure that all key functions of your vehicle are working properly. Bad turn signals, faulty lights, weak brakes, and dying batteries are common culprits that interrupt road trips. Other simple items to check are your vehicle’s fluids, including oil, brake, power steering, and transmission fluids. All four tires should be inflated to their proper pressure, and you should be able to locate and access your spare tire. It’s also important that you have all the correct tire-changing equipment available.
