Every day of our lives we travel somewhere for different reasons: a job interview in another city, a long well-deserved vacation, a visit to our parents (or any other relative’s house), among others. Most of the time we reach our destination without any complication, but other people may not have been so fortunate.
Complications on the road are usual, and they range from simply having a flat tire or leaving some of our clothes at home, to accidents or law issues. That is why we are giving you some tips, so you may pay attention to those little details to avoid having a problem with a sea, air, or road trip.
Check your car’s conditions: Before taking a road trip, see if you do not have a flat tire or enough gas. Also, that the brakes, battery, engine, and other parts of the automobile are fine.
Plan your trip beforehand: Do not make any hasty decision. Even if you are in a hurry and need to get to your destination quickly, an emergency plan for your road trip can avoid several problems. Check for all the routes you can take if there is heavy traffic or demand, weather conditions, and tickets prices for flights or cruises.
Follow the law: No matter where you are going, laws are there to protect you and other people. Besides this, there are police or security officers to check if everything is alright. So do not go over the stop speed, check your front and back lights, do not drive after or while drinking, do not put anything that might look suspicious in your baggage, like knives, guns, or drugs, and follow the officer’s’ instructions.
Don’t forget your papers: Even if you think you are following the law, security personnel and police patrols may ask you to show them your papers. Do not be worried; all you have to do is keep them in check, and always have them on hand: your ID, license, registration, medical papers, among others.
Assign roles for each person in the vehicle: If you travel with your family or a group of friends to a location 1-2 days away, you cannot drive all the way. Assign the people in the vehicle roles so that you may fall asleep, or if you need someone to check on a map or take a phone call.
Prepare yourself for any eventuality: Even if you prepare everything for a safe trip, something may happen while traveling: a flat tire because of a stone, a sudden illness, an emergency landing or docking, a storm. Have everything prepared for these eventualities, so that you may solve them.
