Road Trip Safety Tips
The road trip is an American icon. In fact, there is a whole movie genre devoted to the act of traversing great distances in a car. In fact, the trip itself often gets as much attention as the destinations themselves. Unfortunately, however, road trips present many dangers to travelers and their loved ones.

Most people are aware of many of the things that are necessary for a road trip. With modern technology, things like checking the weather or arranging lodging are quick and easy. There are some less obvious steps that travelers need to take, however, in order to prepare themselves for the unexpected on the road, including:
- Initial maintenance – if you have not had your car checked out in a while, it is a good idea to have a tune-up before your big trip
- Follow traffic laws – sometimes, traffic laws vary by state, so it is important to check each state’s traffic regulations and follow them accordingly
- Know when to sleep – though a group may be rotating driver duties, get rest when you need and do not push your body to dangerous extremes
In part, it may be the unknown of the journey that makes road trips exciting as well as dangerous. Fortunately, these inherent risks can be combated with common sense and a little forethought.
