If your family is one of many in Chicago that will be packing up the car and heading out on a road trip, you should always realize the importance of safety before and during your trip. Here are some safety tips for your summer trip:
- Plan – Road trips can take you into new territory, so it’s always helpful to familiarize yourself with the route ahead of time. You can also plan when you may stop and where you can stay along the way. Program a GPS or other navigational tools ahead of time so that you don’t have to do so while driving.
- Inspect your car – Always have your vehicle inspected and tuned up before a road trip to prevent any unexpected problems. You want to ensure your brakes and tires are in good condition and will last for a long trip.
