Road Trip Safety

Road trips are a great way to spend a vacation. Whether you are with family or friends, getting in the car and driving is an excellent way to see not only Wisconsin, but the beauties of the surrounding states, and even Canada.

With all the thought that goes into packing, finding just the right places to go, and deciding how much time to spend at each one, safety may be the furthest thing from your mind. It shouldn&t be, however, and taking a moment to consider what’s ahead of you on the road is well worth the time. Some safety tips for your road trip include:

  • Drive safely: the temptation is to get where you&re going quickly so you can spend as much time there as possible. However, speeding and reckless driving can result in traffic citations, or worse. Driving safely also means switching drivers often. Don&t let fatigue put you and your travel companions in a dangerous situation.
  • Pack for everything: you never know when bad weather will hit. This might be frustrating if you&re a fan of packing light, but being prepared is worth it if the car runs out of gas in the middle of a storm.
  • Do your homework: planning a memorable experience means more than just selecting destinations. Research your path. It’s good to be mentally prepared for those slow two-lane back roads, and you&ll thank yourself later for planning to avoid areas of construction and heavy traffic when possible.
