Driving for road trips in the summer needs to

Winter tires will not work so switch them with those for the appropriate season. Check tire pressure before departing as a pound of it is generally lost on a monthly basis. Road and tires contact is enhanced by correct tire inflation which is also why blowouts and tread separations are prevented.

Keep a close eye on fluids. See if the oil needs changing. Your vehicle's owner's manual will list the manufacturer's oil recommendations. With the hood open look at the coolant antifreeze mix inside the radiator. The ideal coolant to water ratio is 50 to 50 to ensure maximum temperature regulation in hot and cold climes.

Make an overall assessment of the car. A grease monkey needs to check that all belts and hoses are working. Wiper blades usually last just a year so check yours for efficiency. Take your car to an authorized car repair center if its battery is past the three year use mark so it can be tested.

Have an emergency kit handy in the car. Flares and flashlights plus jumper cables as well as a first aid kit and a mat to cover clothes can be placed in the trunk. Packing paper towels and spare clothing along with extra washer fluid and a container of water plus non perishable foodstuffs as well as basic tools such as socket sets plus hatchets and wrenches or pliers and screwdrivers will also be good.

Many are guilty of stuffing the car with almost all the house contents when preparing for a road trip. Drop this habit and pack only what is important. Shampoo will be provided at the hotel so why bring some along? Do you really need to bring eight pairs of shorts when you will have access to a washer/dryer?

In packing the things you selected do not pile them up so high you no longer see the road. Placing the heaviest items at or near the truck center will make moving them easier but for what is left of the load try distributing them evenly all over the vehicle.

Drivers in a languid state represent one of the major accident causes. Make a point of getting enough sleep before hunkering behind the wheel for a long drive. While coffee perks you right up the caffeine buzz is just temporary and you soon find yourself in a lulled state. Make frequent stopovers and if someone else can switch with you and drive each hour do it. A small bladder might seem frustrating but it actually is responsible for reducing the dangers of freeway fatigue as it forces people to make stopovers for the bathroom often.

Think about it you are exhausted from the hours of driving and there are kids in the car which test your patience even further resulting in the common road rage accident on the freeway. Heed this advice play nice. Car signals should be used but tailgating and hogging the road should be avoided. More people would love spending time on the roads if only they got along. Keep the traveling suggestions listed here in mind throughout the summer road trip and it is sure to be a relaxing one.
