Health Tip: Prepare for a Safe Road Trip

(HealthDay News) -- Heading out for a long road trip in the heat of summer?

Be prepared, says the U.S. Department of Transportation, which suggests:

  • Take your car for a checkup. Make sure its tires and battery are in good shape, and that the oil is recently changed.
  • Pack an emergency kit. Make sure you have a cell phone and a charger, and a well-stocked first aid kit.
  • Before hitting the road, check for any recalls on your vehicle.
