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 https://www.ots.ca.gov/ots-and-traffic-safety/traffic-safety-tips/roadside-emergency-kit/.
- 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.
