Safety Tips for Your Next Road Trip

Do You Know?
  • Do not post on social media that you will be away from home/on vacation.
  • Make sure your mail and any newspaper deliveries are stopped until you return.  Or, have a trusted friend or neighbor collect them daily.
  • Have someone walk through your home periodically while you are away to make sure there are no leaks and everything is in good condition.
  • Make sure your car has been properly serviced and the tires are in good shape — including the spare.
  • Make sure you have an emergency kit in the car that includes: jumper cables; LED emergency lights; tools to change a tire; flashlight, first-aid kit; extra water; warm blankets; car window breaker; seat belt cutter and a fully charged cell phone.
  • If carrying extra luggage on the top of the car, make sure everything is safely secured.
  • If your car is pulling a boat, trailer, etc. make sure the chains are properly affixed.
  • Make sure the driver is alert.  If tired, pull into a safe area to rest.
  • Do not text; check emails or search the internet while driving.

"Every question that I had was answered in mere minutes and the follow through that the staff, secretaries and attorneys had was superior. I have dealt with many, many firms that have all disappointed me and Searcy Denney was by far the most thorough - I highly recommend them!"
