Follow these 3 road trip safety tips this summer

There's nothing more exciting than taking a summer road trip. From the warm weather to the time with friends and family, you're in a position to enjoy yourself on many fronts.

However, there's something to remember: Your safety is more important than anything else. Here are three simple tips you can follow to avoid trouble on the road:

  • Inspect your vehicle: Before leaving home, inspect your vehicle to ensure that it's ready to safely transport you to and from your destination. Pay close attention to tire pressure, tire tread levels, fluid levels and wiper blades.
  • Rest up: Drowsy driving claims many lives every year. Even if you're not taking a super long road trip, it's still critical to get enough sleep before leaving home. This allows you to avoid drowsy driving and the risks associated with it.
  • Don't drive distracted: It's easy to get distracted when spending so many consecutive hours behind the wheel. You fiddle with the radio, you chat with passengers, you eat and you drink. Even minor distractions can cause an accident, so you should prevent these at all costs.

If you're injured in a motor vehicle accident, move to safety and call 911 for help. The responding officer can take control of the scene, while paramedics provide you and your passengers with treatment and transportation to a local hospital.

As time allows, learn more about your legal rights and the steps you should take to file a car insurance claim. The information you gather will help you receive compensation for your injuries, damage to your vehicle and other considerations.
