With the ongoing pandemic, taking an extended drive to visit loved ones and celebrate the holidays can be tricky. That’s why it’s important to follow these safety tips to prepare for the road ahead and ensure you stay safe while traveling this holiday season.
Driving to visit your family and friends during the holidays might be something you’re used to, but you will still need to plan your route and choose rest stops options ahead of time. Certain restaurants might still be takeout only or have other limitations, so you should research different restaurants along your route beforehand.
Pack the right supplies
Make sure you have enough masks for the duration of your drive since they should be worn whenever you stop at rest stops, gas stations, and restaurants. It’s also a good idea to have hand sanitizer and wet wipes on hand to ensure your car stays clean.
Service your car
If your car hasn’t been as active recently, you should have your car inspected by a service technician to ensure it’s up to date on maintenance before you hit the road. You should also check that your tire treads are not too worn for slippery roads and that your fluids are properly topped off.
