Safety Tips for a Successful Road Trip

Do you have a long road trip coming up? Get started by planning your route and taking certain precautions that will help to make your trip a pleasant one. Here are a few of the most important precautions to take before a planned trip. 

Safety Tips for a Successful Road Trip

  • Don't drive for several hours without a break. Plan a rest break, food break, restroom break, or phone call break to give yourself a rest. 
  • Adjust all mirrors and seats before getting out on the road because adjusting mirrors while driving is a distraction when your eyes should be focusing on the road. 
  • Make sure that all of the passengers in your vehicle are wearing their seat belt.
  • Don't eat food and drink while driving. Instead, pull over to a rest stop or to a safe location where you can stop to eat. 
  • Keep any items that you might need, within arm's reach, so they are easily accessible to you. This includes toll money, toll cards, or other items. 
  • Prepare an emergency package and keep under your seat or in the glove compartment in case there are any unforeseen situations that occur while you are on your trip. 

Make it a point to get your vehicle serviced before you head out to help enhance the safety of your trip. You can come to our dealership and get the recommended services for your vehicle like an oil change, brake service, and more.

These tips will help ensure your safety and success on long trips. Remember to give us a call at Rockie Williams’ Premier Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram in Mt. Juliet, TN; we can set up an appointment for your vehicle to get serviced before your next upcoming road trip.
