Default Safety Tips for the Road

Every 18 seconds someone is involved in an auto accident; every 11 minutes someone dies. Here are some street-smart strategies every driver should practice:
• Be cautions at intersections, a danger zone. Intersections can be risky because there are a lot of distractions: turning cars, pedestrians and red-light runners.
• Steer clear of erratic drivers. Let a tailgater pass you.
• Keep your eyes on the road. Talking on a cell phone or reading a map can distract you and lead to an accident. Keep in mind that a distracted driver might also be near you. Drive cautiously.
• Be alert near parked cars. Someone could open a car door or pull out in front of you.
• Don’t drive sleep-deprived. Sleep is not a matter of willpower, but a biological need. If you become drowsy, pull off the road and get some rest.
• When passing another car, get past the driver’s blind spot as quickly and safely as possible.
• Know your brakes. Most cars have anti lock brakes, which require a driver to apply a firm and continuous pressure on the pedal.
• In stormy weather, leave extra space between you and the car ahead.
• Don’t drive through water. A small amount of water can disable a vehicle in seconds.
• Don’t forget the basics: Buckle your seat belt, limit loose objects in your car and lock your doors.

I don't think there is anything to be worried about. All the highways these days have big blue signs that tell you of restaurants, gas stations, etc that are off the road and if they are close to the highway you can tell if they are open or not.

Many people will be driving along the road with you as well since you are staying on a major interstate so really there is nothing to be concerned about as long as you don't pick up a hitch hiker.

Follow the rules of the road.

The traffic laws were passed for good reasons. Don't pass in no-passing zones, add 20 to the speed limit signs, or use the shoulder as another lane.
