Road trips can be great fun for everyone. They're an opportunity to do things you've never done before, check out Toronto bed & breakfasts you've always wanted to try, and build a scrapbook of wacky memories that will sustain you for years to come. It's important to remember, however, that when you're getting crazy you should never cross the line and disobey the rules of the road. You could ruin your trip by getting a hefty traffic ticket fine or even going to jail. Here are some common rules that road trippers break.

Cell Phones

It's natural to want to call or text your Richmond Hill townhouses to see how your family is doing or to report on your latest adventures, but you should never do it while driving. In some jurisdictions it is legal, but in many it is not. Even where it is legal it's still dangerous as it takes your attention away from the road. So when your phone rings, have your passenger answer it for you or turn on your hands-free headset.


If you're going to be drinking at any point, call a Parsippany taxi service to take you back to your hotel and go back for your car the next day. NEVER drive after you have been drinking. Instead, have a designated sober person (you can rotate this duty) so that there is always someone who can drive. You should also never allow your passengers to drink in the car while you are driving. Having open liquor in the car can get you arrested.


It's tempting, when you're driving around and around a downtown block looking for a place to put the car so you can visit your friends' Toronto condos, to park illegally. You should know, however, that most cities are very vigilant when it comes to parking violations, so if you park in the wrong spot your car might not be there when you return. If you simply must stop in an illegal parking zone, leave someone behind who can move the car if the authorities show up.

Seat Belts and Distractions

When you're having a good time, you don't want to be tied down and told what you can and can't do. But when you're in a car heading for your Park Lake condos, distractions from inside the car can get you arrested or even killed. Therefore make sure everyone is properly buckled into their seats and that there are no pets or children roaming the cabin.
