Safety First and Always

  • Buckle Up. Every Trip. Every Time.
  • Always plan ahead, use a Designated Sober Driver.
  • Don’t text or talk on your cell phone while driving – even hands-free. If you need to make a call, check road or weather conditions or respond to a text, wait until you stop in safe place, such as a rest stop or parking lot.
  • Carry an emergency kit. You can build your own with tips found at http://www.ots.ca.gov/roadsideemergencykit.asp.
  • Share the driving with other passengers to avoid fatigue.
  • Schedule trips to allow for frequent breaks. Take time to pull over at rest stops to stretch your legs and focus your head.
  • Don’t fall into the trap of driving while angry – aggressive driving kills.
