Tips For Spring Break Road Trips

It’s that time of year again when millions of people head off on a vacation over spring break. College students may be heading out for a road trip to warm weather, visit friends, or family. Driving to a destination is one of the most popular transportation methods for spring break trips. With all the warm-air revelry happening, it’s easy to see why spring break could be one of the most dangerous times on the road.

Here are a few tips shared by Kanner & Pintaluga Review for the road ahead for an exciting spring break:

RESEARCH BEFORE YOU GO

No matter the destination, driving is so much easier when there’s a plan. Make sure you map out your travel routes & activities to avoid wasting time getting lost & stressing out.

TAKE TURNS

When you’re going on a road trip, take turns behind the wheel & make sure someone is sitting in the passenger seat. They can help keep you awake, aware, keep an eye out for traffic, and help with directions.

BRING SNACKS

Pack lots of snacks that are easy to eat, keep energy levels high & don’t need to be refrigerated. You won’t regret it.

TRAVEL LIGHTLY

Remember, there’s limited space in a car, and you are going to be sitting in the car for a while. Try your best not to over pack.

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A SPARE TIRE

Before you leave for your road trip, double-check to make sure your trunk is equipped with your ‘donut’ tire. It may be beneficial to watch some online tutorials on how to change a tire.

CREATE A PLAYLIST

Make sure you’ve updated your phone with upbeat music. Mellow music will make you tired on your road trip and tired drivers are just as dangerous as drunk drivers. Don’t forget your car charger!

AVOID ALCOHOL

If you know you’re going to be driving, don’t drink. Drinking & driving is extremely dangerous and increases your risk of getting into an accident.

ABIDE THE TRAFFIC LAWS

Make sure you’re driving at a reasonable speed on your road trip route. A$600 speeding ticket will definitely put a damper on your spring break.

DETERMINE MILEAGE

Fuel is a major expense on road trips. Use a RTA Fuel Cost Calculator to see how much money & gas you will need for the whole trip.

ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE

Find out before you depart for your road trip if your auto insurance covers roadside assistance. If not, consider purchasing AAA.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a car crash or truck accident and are in need of an accident attorney, don’t forget to call the Law Offices of Kanner & Pintaluga Review, P.A. by dialing 1-800-411-PAIN.
