On a road trip you understandably would want it to be an enjoyable stress free experience. Before packing up the car, be sure you go through the travel pointers below.

You drive the car if it is still sporting winter tires so make the necessary switch. Around a pound of tire pressure is lost each month from a standard tire so check the tires prior to leaving. 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. Car oil needs to be changed before heading out. You will find the recommendations for oil of the maker of your vehicle in the owner manual. With the hood open look at the coolant antifreeze mix inside the radiator. Optimal temperature control is achieved for both hot and cool weather if the coolant to water ratio stays at 50 to 50.

Subject the rest of the vehicle to a once over. All hoses and belts must be examined by a mechanic. The life expectancy of a wiper blade is just one year so you need to check the efficiency of your wiper blades. Check your car battery and if it is under three years old you are in the clear.

Vehicles must always feature a container filled with emergency equipment and materials. Carry in a safe, secure part of your trunk or cargo area a flashlight, flares and a first aid kit, jumper cables, a mat or blanket to protect your clothing in the event that you need to change your tire. Always pack additional supplies from extra washer fluid to jugs of water to basic repair tools like screwdrivers or pliers to paper towels and gloves to clothing.

When the inside of the car is filled to capacity with all sorts of items like coolers and pillows some people move on to the roof of the car and put even more stuff on it. Break the habit and stick with bringing just the important items. Why take along shampoo when the hotel provides one to guests? You are going to a hotel not the woods so there will be washers and dryers there for doing laundry which means bringing 10 pairs of shorts is not required.

In packing the things you selected do not pile them up so high you no longer see the road. Evening out the load is suggested but for stuff in pickups it would be best to have the heaviest ones located in the middle to minimize problems when unloading.

Most accidents on the road are the result of people nodding off while driving. Go to bed early so you are ready for the hours of driving the next day. While coffee perks you right up the caffeine buzz is just temporary and you soon find yourself in a lulled state. When possible switch drivers and pull over frequently. 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.

Just think you are exhausted and still driving after hours of even more driving and the kids are not exactly at their best behavior in the back of the car so you finally lose it and road rage takes place. Avoid losing your temper. Car signals should be used but tailgating and hogging the road should be avoided. If people were just a little nicer to each other then road rage would be a distant memory. Keep the traveling suggestions listed here in mind throughout the summer road trip and it is sure to be a relaxing one.
