If you’re planning on taking a summer road trip, no matter your destination, it’s important to stay safe. Here are some road trip safety tips from Downtown Chrysler to help make your next road trip a fun one.
Stay alert, no matter the terrain. Canada is home to varied terrain, from mountains to prairies. No matter where you’re driving, make sure you’re staying alert and avoiding boredom. Crank up some tunes, listen to a podcast or audiobook, or play a fun road trip game with your passengers to make your drive easier.
Keep an eye out for animals. Wildlife is abundant throughout Canada, so if you’re heading out on the road, make sure you keep an eye out for animals of all kinds. Continually check both sides of the road as you drive. Keep in mind that animals are the most active at dawn and dusk, so be extra aware then.
Be ready for bad weather. Make sure you know the rules for driving in inclement weather. Increase the distance between you and the vehicle in front of you to give yourself plenty of extra time to brake, and be sure you’re not relying on automatic headlights when visibility is poor.
