Be Prepared and Remain Calm

When faced with a dangerous situation it is essential that you try to keep your cool.

Having a good idea of what to expect, and being prepared for the range of possible scenarios, is invaluable. With this knowledge you can react in a calm, deliberate manner, which will not only bolster your own confidence but that of your passengers as well.

Safety precautions as well as maintenance and upkeep on your vehicle should always be attended to. Tire pressure, oil changes, brake inspections, etc. are all basic preventative measures that should not be overlooked.

Know the layout of your vehicle, where and how all the locks and windows operate, and the working of the seat-belt mechanism, is essential. An emergency kit that includes reflective warning triangles, a first aid kit, jumper cables, and a tow strap should be standard equipment wherever you drive.

Bringing your cell phone, and making sure that it is fully charged, is especially important of you are taking a long road trip.
