Health Tip: Prepare for a Road Trip

By on July 28, 2010

Any car travel requires preparation, especially those extended trips behind the wheel.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons offers these suggestions before driving long distances:

  • Use a map or guidance system to plot your route, marking the exits, approximate mileage and major landmarks.
  • The night before your trip, get plenty of sleep.
  • Pack a bottle of water and a first aid kit.
  • Make sure the windshield, headlights and taillights are clean.
  • Maintain your car consistently, and make sure it’s running well before you leave.
