Research in advance what the local traffic rules are at your destination. This way you’ll know what to expect on the road.
Plan your route
Before leaving, plan out your route. What’s the best way from A to B? What stops can you make along the way? How much time do you need?
Travelling through a remote area? Then don’t forget to bring enough food and drinks for the road journey.
