Conducting a pre-trip inspection of your vehicle prior to setting out on a road trip is very important to ensuring your safety while traveling. In addition to the pre-trip inspection, a medium-sized box or bag, kept in the trunk, with basic equipment updated for each driving season could also be extremely helpful in the event of an accident or breakdown.
