 • Obey the rules of the road and carry your driving licence with you.

 • Plan the route to your holiday destination and give yourself enough time to reach your venue at a comfortable pace.

 • Use a GPS navigation tool or a road atlas to plan your trip in advance.

 • For peace of mind, try to stick to major routes or toll roads. If you are going to travel on the ‘back roads’, identify the towns along the route and what the distance is between them.

 • Do not get stranded without fuel. Always plan ahead where you will re-fuel.

 • Plan rest stops along the way and if you are travelling with kids it is a great way to let them know when and where you will be stopping.

 • Always ensure that a friend or family member, who is not travelling with you, is aware of the route that you are planning to travel. Ideally you should also update them on your progress of the journey and let them know when you have reached your destination safely.

 • Try to avoid driving after dark if possible.

 • Expect others not to be as obedient to the law as you are. We hope...
