short getaway is just what you need this holiday weekend. Before you
pack up your car and the kids, keep in mind the following traffic
safety tips to help get you where you are going safely.
Pack with Care:

If items must be placed outside the vehicle make sure that they are
safely secured using a roof rack or cargo carrier.

a pleasant family outing into a stressful situation. Make sure to bring
toys, games, colouring books, books, movies and DVD players to help
keep kids occupied.
Make sure that you and your passengers are wearing seatbelts at all
times. If you are travelling with a baby or child ensure they are
seated in a properly installed car seat or booster seat.
