7. Know your Route Beforehand
Before you set out in your car, you should always have a clear route planned out for your trip along with a back-up route in case the first one is blocked or under construction. Also, you should have complete information about important places like police stations, filling stations and garages on your way so that you can easily find them if the need arises. You can also have a GPS system installed in your car to help you with the directions if you ever get lost.
