  1. Pack snacks and entertainment for the kids. Children can quickly grow restless during a road trip. Happy children
    mean a happy journey.

  2. Pack an emergency vehicle kit (flashlight, booster cables, tire puncture sealant, first-aid kit, flares, drinking water, non-perishable food, cell phone with batteries and charger for emergency calls, etc.). 

  3. Ensure your vehicle is roadworthy before heading out on the highways this weekend. Ensure your vehicle is in top working condition with a full tank of fuel and properly inflated tires (including the spare tire) to help with fuel efficiency.

  4. Get plenty of rest. Drivers should be well rested before they leave and take breaks while traveling. Ensure you stop to get some fresh air and stretch your legs. Drivers will remain alert if they are properly rested.

  5. Always buckle up. Use your seat belt. Make sure everyone is properly secured in the vehicle including children in car seats.

  6. Observe speed limits. Driving too slow or fast can increase the chance of being in a collision. You will get there, make sure it’s safely!

  7. Never drink and drive. If you are planning to take part in the social activities involving alchohol, ensure you have a designated driver. Drinking and driving is never an option!  

  8. Check weather and road conditions before travelling. If conditions are poor, delay travel if possible.
