Safety-First-Prepping to attend my nephew’s (@DougLightyear) graduation – the impending road trip had me thinking about safety tips.  Are you thinking about a road trip? Grab up some fun toys (magnetic board games, foam puzzles, coloring books and children’s leapsters) and make sure the kiddo’s carseats are not expired (yes, they do expire!) and the seat belts fit and hit the road. Need more car traveling safety? Here are seven safety tips for your next road trip.

  1. Go for a tune-up.
  2. Get a good night’s sleep.
  3. Give your car seat or booster seat a boost.
  4. Gear up for safety.
  5. Be sun smart.
  6. Scour a backseat.
  7. Keep the weight down.
