Spring Break 2013 or Bust! We know that millions of Spring Breakers are excitedly anticipating Spring Break 2013! Well before you venture off on your Spring Break road trip, we at Walker Smith Body Shop of Snellville would like to offer some driving tips.
Tip#1 Get plenty of rest.
When setting out on a road trip it is best to be well rested before your travels. Driving may not require a lot of physical exertion, but it does take a lot of sheer mental concentration! When driving you are constantly making decisions based on the environment around you. So it is best to get a good night’s sleep and leave in the morning when you are the most rested!
Tip#2 Stay alert and focused.
Put the cell phone away or set up a hands free device or ear piece. You should have a plan for your cell phone before you even leave the driveway.
Tip#3 Get good directions.
GPS’s are great but sometimes they can be off. It is best to have multiple sets of directions just in case.
Tip#4 Drive defensively.
You may be a great driver but that doesn’t mean everyone else is. Pay attention to other drivers. Drive with extreme caution, especially in highly congested areas.
Tip#5 Have your vehicle serviced before your trip.
This tip will save you a lot of time and money. By having a professional service your vehicle you will have the confidence of knowing that everything is working efficiently.

Services like AAA are great to have in case of an emergency. Also some car insurance policies offer roadside assistance as well.
