Finally, plot out a map with your route and your destinations ahead of time. If your vehicle is equipped with a navigation system, make sure its software is up-to-date. It’s recommended to make routine stops every 100 miles or two hours of driving. If you’re stopping for fuel, take a few minutes to check your tire pressure too.

Avoid distracted driving by having a designated texter in the car, or someone else to answer the phone. Also avoid driving if you’re feeling drowsy or tired.
