Do not only rely on technology for mapping.
Kent (PRWEB UK) 16 December 2012
• Try to plan in advance so that important items are not forgotten, especially for emergencies. Make a list and tick off as packing progresses.
- During the winter months try to plan trips for during daylight. Better visual and less chance of getting lost and roads are less icy than night time when temperatures drop.
- Always travel warm. Take extra blankets and warm clothing, water and food. Should severe weather suddenly fly in and the vehicle gets stuck, the temperature drop is quite severe and can pose as a threat to life.
- Make sure you have breakdown cover, even though sometimes even recovery vehicles struggle to make it out but at least you know help would be on its way.
- Take a first aid kit.
- Do not only rely on technology for mapping or for contact information. If phones or GPS systems fail, you should always have a hard copy of maps and contact information to be able to proceed should technology fail.
- Let someone else know of your trip and know your route and itinerary.
Planning ahead and checking regularly for weather updates, road repairs and diversions leading up to and even the day of travel can bring more positive outcomes for any road trip taken during the snowy winter Christmas season.
