Today’s Team LSDS Road Trip Travel Tip - Plan Ahead & Be Prepared
Confirm COVID Restrictions at Your Destination - Different cities and states have different COVID-19 restrictions in place. Mask or no mask? Indoor dining or patio-seating only? Confirm the details before you hit the road so you know what to expect when you arrive.
Check The Weather Before You Go - Mother Nature is still calling the shots, so make sure you know what to expect on the road and at your destination.
Familiarize Yourself with Your Route - Whether you are driving around the neighborhood, across the state, or cross-country, make sure to check traffic and road conditions before you hit the road so you aren’t unpleasantly surprised by closures, delays, traffic, or other driving adventures.
Fill Up Your Car with Gasoline - Unexpected traffic, inclement weather, and travel delays can all be managed more easily if you aren’t worried about your fuel gauge being stuck on E. Stop angling your head so it still looks like you have a quarter tank and stop for a quick fill-up - you will still make great time!
Stay Informed & Situationally Aware - Remaining informed and situationally aware, both on the road and at your destination, cannot be stressed enough. Equip yourself with updated information, be cognizant of your surroundings, and always have an exit strategy in place, just in case.
