Summer is a popular time to take a road trip.

But before you program your destination into a GPS, here are some tips that you should know:

Get a Tune-up

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), vehicle owners should visit a qualified mechanic to have their air conditioner, battery, belts, and fluids checked before hitting the roadways.

Don’t Drive on Limited Sleep

The NHTSA also states that driving while drowsy plays a role in 100,000 accidents every year. It is best to get at least eight hours of sleep and switch off with another driver every few hours.

Secure Your Dog

If traveling with your dog, make sure he is secure in his seat with a specially designed belt or in a carrier. Loose dogs can become projectiles during an accident causing serious harm to those in the front seat.

Pack an Emergency Travel Kit

Anytime you travel, it is best to have an emergency travel kit on hand. It should include things such as a fully charged cell phone, safety flares, battery cables, first aid supplies, and snack foods.

Roadside Assistance

If you don’t already have roadside assistance, consider getting it before your trip. Such a service can help with things such as lock outs, flat tires, and dead batteries.

If you have sustained injuries in a car accident, please contact us to discuss your case. Should you have a valid claim, we will fight hard on your behalf to get you the settlement that you deserve.
