Millions of travelers are preparing to hit the highway this winter. Before embarking on holiday travel, take a few minutes to check your readiness for unexpected excitement.
Review your travel emergency plans. If you’ve been putting off maintenance on your vehicle, now’s the time to do it.
Check your vehicle emergency kit. If you don’t have one, add the most critical items to your last-minute holiday shopping list.
Before starting a long trip, check weather reports for your destination and for major cities along your route. Also check the 5-1-1 sites (or equivalents) of other states’ transportation departments so you’re aware of any construction detours or other potential delays.
