TRAVEL TIPS & ADVICE
COVID-19 Road Trip Safety Tips

Caroline Morse Teel - November 19, 2020

Planning a road trip during a pandemic requires more planning and preparation than in normal times. Following these COVID-19 road trip safety tips can help reduce your chances of getting sick while traveling.
And finally, once you arrive at your destination, all the same recommendations apply – physical distancing, mask wearing, and having good hand hygiene remain crucial.
Be Flexible
Planned to stop at a certain rest stop but it’s packed or looks unclean? Have a backup plan so that you’re not forced to stop somewhere that seems unsafe. Remember that many places (like coffee shops) may have closed their restrooms, so it’s always good to have a second or third choice planned.

Come Prepared
In addition the typical road trip safety supplies (like an emergency kit), make sure you pack the COVID-19 essentials. Bring the best mask you have (preferably an N95 or surgical one if you have it), sanitizing wipes, hand sanitizer, paper towels and toilet paper (in case the public restroom is out).
Pack Food and Drinks
Minimize stops and avoid eating indoors with other people by packing your own food and drinks. A car cooler and some ice packs will let you have cold beverages and fresh food, and you can bring a picnic blanket or camp chairs and dine anywhere that looks scenic.
If you can’t bring your own food or want a hot meal, try to use the drive-through, curbside pickup, or outdoor dining sections at restaurants wherever possible.
Choose Your Lodging Wisely
If you have to stop overnight on your road trip, choose your hotel carefully. Ideally, look for a hotel/motel that has exterior corridors, a separate HVAC system in-room, contactless check-in, and other enhanced sanitizing measures. A vacation rental could also be a good choice, as you don’t have to interact with staff or other guests, but they might not be cleaned to the same standard as a hotel.
Dr. Catherine Le, an infectious disease specialist at Cedars-Sinai, says: "When it comes to road trip accommodations, make sure your hotel room or rental property is thoroughly cleaned and there is enough time in between guests. In addition, the new policies for property rentals or hotels vary from state to state – some places will require a negative COVID-19 test within a certain amount of time prior to check-in, so you will want to make sure you are aware of this before traveling."

Refuel Safely
Pack disposable gloves and use them while you’re pumping gas (and then throw them away and sanitize your hands before you touch anything else). Or, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises: “Use disinfection wipes on handles and buttons at the gas pumps before you touch them. After fueling, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol. When you get to your destination, wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.”
Confirm Opening Hours
Attractions, restaurants, and rest stops may be closed or have limited hours due to the pandemic. If there’s somewhere you absolutely need to visit on your road trip, make sure you call ahead to confirm when they are open. Many hotels may still be closed as well, so you might want to book your accommodations in advance rather than planning to stop whenever you get tired.
Research Your Destination
Before setting off, familiarize yourself with the rules and restrictions of your destination (or any destination that you may be spending a few nights in). You may need to quarantine upon arrival (or before visiting) or have a negative COVID-19 test to comply with local regulations.
Do your research to find out what will be open at your destination. Some states are returning to strict lockdowns, and there may be curfews or other rules in place that you’ll need to be aware of. Also, consider the rate of cases at your destination, and think about postponing your trip if they are rising significantly.
Prepare a Return Plan
Check the government website for your state to find out what the rules are for returning after out-of-state travel. You may need to quarantine or get a COVID-19 test upon return, and you should have a plan as to how/where you will get a test or how you will quarantine at home.

How to help protect yourself and your car.

Fall-driving-tips
Winter’s snow and summer’s heat aren’t the only seasonal driving challenges. While there’s a lot to love about autumn’s beauty, the season poses some unique hazards on the road.

Here are fall driving tips and advice for protecting your car:

fall-driving-tips-in-leaves
Fall foliage may be beautiful, but it poses some hazards to you and your vehicle.

Slippery roads

Wet leaves can be just as slick as ice. Slow down when driving over large patches of leaves, and increase your distance from the car ahead of you. If you do skid on wet leaves, don’t panic and don’t slam on your brakes. Instead, steer in the direction you want to go and release the gas pedal.

Camouflaged potholes (and people)

It’s more difficult to spot potholes, road debris and the curb when leaves are strewn across the road. Slow down to avoid hitting something that could damage your car. And never drive over a large pile of leaves—kids and dogs may be playing in them.

Fire hazards

Wet leaves aren’t the only culprit. Dry leaves can ignite from the heat of your car’s exhaust system or catalytic converter. To avoid this, don’t park on a pile of leaves.

Car damage

Remove leaves from your car, both when you are parked and before you drive. Sap and acid from the leaves can damage your paint. Leaves can get stuck beneath your windshield wipers, making them less effective. And leaves that accumulate under your car’s hood can clog air vents and impact your ventilation system. Pro tip: Use your hands to remove the leaves—using a broom can scratch the paint. Bonus pro tip: Whenever possible, avoid parking beneath a tree.

fall-driving-tips-for-other-hazards
Longer nights

Daylight saving time ends in fall, and you may begin driving in the dark more often. Maintain a speed that allows you to stop for an obstacle at the far reaches of your headlights. These quick headlight tips can also improve your ability to drive safely at night.

More fog

As the air begins to cool, the chance of fog increases. When driving in fog, reduce your speed in order to increase your reaction time. Driving with your low-beam headlights helps you more clearly see the roadway.

Roaming deer

You’re more likely to cross paths with deer during the fall, which is their mating season. Stay especially alert at dawn and dusk, when deer are most active. If you can’t avoid hitting a deer, don’t swerve—but do brake firmly and stay in your lane.

School buses

Grade school may look a bit different this year with virtual classes. But there will still be buses on the road, so be alert and slow down when driving near bus stops. Here is what you should know about sharing the road with school buses.

Jerry Reynolds | June 22, 2020

PLEASE take a minute and read the statistics below and share it with anyone who has a small child or travels with pets in the car:
every year as temperatures rise about leaving kids and pets in hot cars.

I update this story every year in hopes that it may get into the hands of parents who leave small children or pets in the car and prevent another child or pet from suffering a horrible, slow, agonizing death

Car Heat Stroke Statistics
Absorb the numbers below, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration data. Each case ended with the death of a child and the planning of a funeral:

Child vehicular heatstroke deaths for 2019: 52
Child vehicular heatstroke deaths for 2018: 53
Child vehicular heatstroke deaths for 2017: 43
Child vehicular heatstroke deaths for 2016: 39
Child vehicular heatstroke deaths for 2015: 25
Child vehicular heatstroke deaths for 2014: 32
Child vehicular heatstroke deaths for 2013: 44
Child vehicular heatstroke deaths for 2012: 35
Child vehicular heatstroke deaths for 2011: 33

Highest # of fatalities for a one-year time period was last year in 2018: 53

Most Heat Stroke Deaths Preventable
The sad part is, each of those deaths was avoidable, and the vast majority were accidental.

From 1998-2019, 847 children died due to vehicular heatstroke. Of those deaths:

54 percent were forgotten by a caregiver;
26 percent were playing in an unattended vehicle;
19 percent were intentionally left in vehicle by an adult; and
1 percent died under unknown circumstances.

The problem is, many parents don’t understand how quickly temperatures inside their cars can reach life-threatening levels. Children’s body temperatures rise up to five times faster than adults. People often underestimate how quickly temperatures rise in a hot car. Take a look at the rise of the inside of a car versus the outside ambient temperature:

Average elapsed time and inside vehicle temperature rise compared to ambient outdoor temperature:

10 minutes = 19 degree increase
20 minutes = 29 degree increase
30 minutes = 34 degree increase
1 hour = 43 degree increase
Over 1 hour = 45 to 55 degree increase

It is easy to see that while most think an 80 degree outside temperature is pleasant, in a short 30 minutes, the inside temperature of a car is 114 degrees.

Note this important fact: a body core temperature of 107 degrees is usually fatal.

Prevention
There are some common sense things people can do to avoid causing a heatstroke death to children and pets:

“Gracie” Reynolds, daughter of the Car Pro asleep in the car.
Never leave a child or pet in an unattended car, even with the windows down or part way down.
Be sure that all occupants leave the vehicle when unloading. Don’t overlook sleeping babies or pets.
Always lock your car. If a child is missing, check the car first, including the trunk. Teach your children that vehicles are never to be used as a play area.
Keep a stuffed animal in the car seat and when the child is put in the seat, place the animal in the front with the driver as a reminder.
Place your cell phone, purse, briefcase, or even a shoe in the back seat as a reminder that you have your child in the car.
Make “look before you leave” a routine whenever you get out of the car.
Have a plan that your childcare provider will call you if your child does not show up for school.
New Technology
I review a lot of new cars, and I give kudos to General Motors for coming up with the best system I have seen. It is called Rear Seat Reminder. Many other car companies have implemented similar systems. Some will even text you a warning. Here is how the GM system works:�

The Rear Seat Reminder works by monitoring the vehicle’s rear doors. The feature is activated when either rear door is opened and closed up to 10 minutes before the vehicle is started or while the vehicle is running. Once the system is activated, the vehicle is designed to sound five chimes and display a message in the driver information center that reads “Rear Seat Reminder / Look in Rear Seat” the next time the vehicle is turned off. Believe me, you will not miss this alarm.

I have also seen people who have locked pets in their car to run in somewhere and felt safe by using the remote start feature on their key fob. Most require the car be locked before it can be remotely started. Beware: all of these will shut themselves off at some point in case the vehicle was accidentally started. Some shut off in as little as five minutes.

Learn More
There are a number of resources to get more education on this subject. My favorite is www.kidsandcars.org. There is a ton of information there as well as a newsletter you can sign up for.

Also, know what your state law is on freeing a child or pet in a locked car. Some states allow people to break car windows to save a child or pet without civil or criminal penalties. If you come across a child or pet in a hot car, act fast but act wisely. If someone else is around you, get him or her to take a picture or video of your actions, starting with a shot of the outside temperature.

Final Thoughts
Imagine living with yourself should you be the cause of death to a child or pet. Those memories would haunt you forever, knowing how the child or pet suffered. Some people are never the same. Yes, everyone is busy and often running behind, and many times people get to a destination and bail out of the car.

��Cases where one parent is not used to dropping off a child at daycare or school often result in daily routines such as driving to work, jumping out of the car, and locking the doors, is disrupted.��

THINK! As someone who has suffered the loss of a child, trust me, it is an exclusive club that nobody wants to be a member of.

Backovers A backover incident typically takes place when a car is backing out of a driveway or parking space. Every year, thousands of children are killed or seriously injured because a driver backing up didn’t see them. Learn More
