Road trips are the quintessential American vacation. Wherever you’re traveling this summer, take a few precautions to minimize the risk of a breakdown and help you deal with the challenges associated with accidents. This video, presented by the California Highway Patrol (CHP), can help you get started.
The CHP sergeant featured here recommends planning your entire route before you depart, including the areas where you’ll stop to rest. Remember that driving while drowsy can be just as dangerous as driving while intoxicated. Inspect your vehicle too, checking the oil, radiator fluid, battery life, belts and hoses, and all of the lights. Pack an emergency kit before you leave, just in case.
