ROAD TRIP!!!


Getting ready for AD
the quintessential
college road trip?
Before you hit the
ground running, take the following into
consideration so you can make sure those
road trip memories are legendary...in a
good way.

* Make sure your car is in good travel-
shape. Check the brake pads, tire pres-
sure, tire condition, windshield wipers,
battery, etc. Have your car serviced
before you leave.
* Have a spare tire, tire jack, jumper
cables, etc. A roadside assistance kit is a
useful tool to have in your trunk.
* Fully charge your cell phone and have
atleast $20 of cash on you just in case
you need to call someone or have an
emergency.
* Map out travel directions ahead of
time. Be prepared for possible traffic
and detours.
* Do not drive recklessly. Just because
you're on Spring Break, it doesn't mean
that you have total freedom to act the
fool. Be mindful of the safety of others
and yourself.
* Have your Driver's License, insurance
card, and
registration
with you.
* If you
see an
emergency
vehicle (police, ambulance, fire truck, tow
truck, etc.) on the side of the road, you
have to slow down 20 mph below the
posted speed limit (if the limit is higher
than 20 mph). If you are on a roadway
with multiple lanes of traffic, you must
vacate the lane closest to the emergency
vehicles as soon as it is safe to do so. If
the speed limit is 20 mph, you must slow
down to 5 mph. Go to http://www.
flhsmv.gov/SafetyTips/MoveOverTips.
