Road Care during Holidays

Road Care during Holidays

Millions of people are expected to travel by road during these coming weekends due to the holidays, that’s why you should take into account the following points to be careful on the road, and not have any setbacks.

Before the trip

Before hitting the road, make sure your car is in good condition for a road trip. You should take your car to a workshop to check the following list, this is a recommendation if you do not know how to check the condition of the following:
  • Tires
  • Liquid level
  • Oil level
  • Wiper washer
  • Lights
  • Brakes
  • Shock absorbers
  • Air filter
  • Battery
Also carry an emergency kit, supplies, and a first aid kit in your vehicle. You can search the blogs that we have already published in RSG Magazine, in which we list basic items to bring with you in the car; This will help you for any unforeseen event along the way. Likewise, you should check the weather conditions that will exist that weekend, this to help you plan the route and decide when to hit the road. Remember to always respect the speed and not drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In winter, remember that you should not fasten the child’s seatbelt with the jacket on. Some of the recommendations given are:
  • Put a bottle of water or hot towel on the seat for 10 or 15 minutes beforehand, so that it gains heat. Remember to remove it before putting the child on.
  • Dress your child in wool or fleece clothing. These materials offer good insulating properties without being too thick, so the belt can be tightened appropriately.
  • Place the jacket “backwards” after fastening the belt. Place your child in the seat without the jacket and fasten the seat belt tightly. Next, you can put the jacket on “backwards,” placing it over your shoulders and letting it fall over your upper body. You can also choose the option of putting a blanket, so it will be more comfortable for the child. This way, you can continue protecting him from cold air without there being a barrier between your child and the belt.

During the trip

Fasten your seatbelt and obey the speed limits. Always follow traffic rules and be careful in work areas, always pay attention to the signs on the road. Make frequent stops during long trips or rotate drivers to avoid fatigue or muscle wasting. If you are too tired to drive, stop and rest for a while at rest areas.   Avoid distractions while driving, such as using your cell phone to text, email, or access social media. Always remember to keep your eyes on the road to avoid any accidents, things happen in seconds.

Remember that in RSG Magazine you can find different workshop options where you can go to review some of these details before and after the road. Go to the list and choose your best option. Enjoy your trip, we wish you the best!
