Summer Driving Tips

Summer Driving Tips

The end of the school year and the start of summer is the perfect time to embark on a delightful drive around the island or visit the beach. However, be sure to prioritize safety while enjoying these summer adventures. Here are some tips on how you can make the most of your summer excursions while keeping yourself and your loved ones protected on the road:

1. Maintain your vehicle.

Regular maintenance such as tune-ups, oil changes, battery checks, and tire rotations go a long way toward preventing breakdowns, so do a maintenance check before making that long trip.

2. Have an emergency kit.

Even a well-maintained vehicle can break down, so it’s advisable to put together an emergency roadside kit to carry with you. Things to include in your kit are a cell phone, first aid kit, flashlight, jumper cables, extra windshield washer fluid, nonperishable food, drinking water, and medicines.

3. Map out your destination ahead of time.

Figure out directions to your travel destination before you start driving. Avoid looking at your phone app for directions while behind the wheel. Distracted driving and taking your eyes off the road even for a split second can lead to a serious accident.

4. Take the pledge.
