Hello, I am 18, and tomorrow planning on making a road trip that will be about 700 miles alone. Besides stopping every now and then for scenery or food, i don't plan or stopping for sleep, so i am estimating about a 10-12 hour trip. Any tips or ideas on extra safety i should take? What about ideas of making sure I stay awake?
also, I am considering leaving at about 9:00 p.m., and arriving around 9:00 a.m., not only because I am most awake during that time to begin with, but because I have a theory that if i drive in the middle of the night, there will be less cars on the road, thus less chance for a collision. Do you think this theory holds up?
Basically, i am just slightly hesitating on whether this is a good idea or not, so i am open to any input.
