How to avoid getting stranded on long journeys and how to make car accident claims in Rushcliffe
It is not easy to make long journeys, whether you are the driver or passenger. Long journeys are tiring and stressful for everyone, even if you know exactly where you are going and have made the journey a hundred times before. What can make you even more concerned about a long journey, though, is if you are going somewhere that you haven’t visited before, or aren’t completely sure of the route.
In this case, you need to do what you can to ensure that you won’t get stranded somewhere that you have never been before, with no possible way of getting out of the situation. Here are some ways to prepare for longer journeys so that you can avoid this scenario.
- Bring a map. You can plan your route using your sat-nav or have a map up on your phone, but nothing beats a real paper map if you want to avoid getting stranded, so that if you lose internet or power you will still be able to work out where you are based on road signs and so on.
- Bring a fully charged mobile phone. It might be worth having a simple pay as you go mobile phone charged and in the glove compartment at all times for emergencies. You can then switch this on and call for help if you get lost and your own phone has lost battery.
- Stick to major roads. It is hard to get lost if you are on main roads with plenty of other cars and people about. This will not always be possible, but if you can keep your route as close to these areas as possible you should be able to avoid ever being stranded.
- Take someone with you. It is hard to read a map and look for directions and drive at the same time. If you are travelling with someone else, let them do this for you.
