    As a general rule, it’s best to take a break of at least 15 minutes every two hours and to not drive for more than eight hours in a day, to ensure you stay alert and avoid the associated risks of driving for too long without a rest. I really want to try road tripping going cross country. This is very motivational. I will try this after the pandemic!

      Those are good rules of thumb! It’s also helpful if you’re splitting up driving with a partner or friends, too. And I’m glad to hear it — I love going on road trips!

    These are such great tips! I have a trip planned in July and I will come back to this list as I am planning. Avoid rush hour is HUGE. I remember as a kid my family would travel to Busch Gardens each year and each time we would wake up sleepy and annoyed at 4am, but still so excited to get on the road to vacation. This made the trip to smooth I must say!
