5 tips for a safe and happy road trip
Make your next car ride smooth and safe sailing
Fill up your car’s tank with gas and check the oil and tires the day before you leave so that you’re not dealing with unnecessary hold-ups.
Plan your departure
Preferably leave on Sunday: a lot of holiday-makers will have already arrived at their destination and there will be fewer trucks on the road.
Pack great snacks
Pack a picnic and a supply of drinks so you don’t have to line-up in a cafeteria or restaurant. If you’re travelling with kids, find rest areas where they can play, and that have baby-change facilities, if necessary.
Make everything within arms-reach
Place any baby-care items that you may need during the trip in a separate bag that is easily accessible.
