For all your travel gear including auto safety kits and tools, water bottles, maps and luggage visit a CAA Travel Store near you.
- Plan your route ahead of time and bring a map as a back up to your GPS. CAA offers customized maps and TripTik route planners to help get you where you are going safely.
- Motorists should take turns driving if possible.
- Obey the rules of the road, wear your seatbelt and don’t tailgate or speed.
- Take breaks to stretch your legs.
