Bring enough medicine for the duration of your trip. Also travel with a well-stocked first aid kit, which you can use for everything from bandaging minor nicks and scrapes to fishing out a splinter.
A road trip safety kit for your car
Prepare your car for the unexpected. Battery booster cables; emergency flares, reflectors or battery-powered LED beacons; and a portable tool kit are important to bring along. A flashlight with extra fresh batteries, rags or paper towels, and a tire gauge can also prove handy. Here is more about preparing your car before your road trip.
Raincoats and umbrellas are always a must. So too is a heads-up when ominous weather is headed your way. AAA Members can sign up to get texts and/or emails about extreme weather for up to five locations (including your destination and any stops planned along the way).
