Road Trip Checklist

Summer is the perfect time to take a road trip with friends. It is vacation season and the weather is perfect for you to drive your convertible with the wind blowing in your hair.

• All passengers need to be wearing a seat-belt. Make sure those function properly.
• Hopefully it will not rain, but in case it does, you will want your winds...
