Have a Safe Road Trip

Family car trips are a summer standard. Here’s how to make your next long-distance car trip enjoyable and safe:

• Pack a first-aid kit, water, blankets, snacks, and a flashlight.

• Bring headphones for all electronic devices, so noise doesn’t distract the driver.

• Schedule frequent rest stops, so kids don’t get restless.

• Keep all doors locked. If you have electric windows that can be controlled by the driver, lock them, too.

• Don’t let kids lie down in the car. They can’t be protected by seat belts in the prone position.

• Never put infants in the front seat.

• Never store materials like books and stereo equipment on the shelf behind the back seat. If you stop suddenly, these items can be thrown forward with tremendous force.
