Suppose someone has this simple question in mind: “What are a certain number of things involving road trips that few do actually realize?”

Well, first things first, correct? Regardless of what type of road or highway you are currently on, it will depend on the nearest or furthest destinations there are…to be more specific, what destinations are the correct enough distance for you, as well as the correct opportunities for the route there as well as back.

I.e, If you would prefer to head out for a drive yet dinner is in approximately an hour, you would presumably dive to a destination that is approximately a half hour (or less) from home as well as back.

Also, a common thing about driving my family would consider is if the roads are safe, especially the fact that a road would be unsafe to drive on if it is all icy. Normally, if roads are like that, my family aims to avoid driving on them, although in very few cases, we have zero choice, such as if mom is headed to work at Washington Elementary School in Whitewater (which is where I attended elementary school), and also if dad is headlined to HIS work place in Pewaukee.

Considering the previous paragraph, it would rather be both important and interesting to notice a “Bridge May Be Icy” warning sign on a road (even it if were actually summer)…

Considering that, you might be aware of a “Slippery When Wet” sign as well, though a variant of that sign with “Or Frosty” is existent as well.

Not to mention just “Slippery When Icy” signs exist as well…

Also, when it comes to yellow warning signs, you might also have this in mind: ones that state animals cross at that spot. You are presumably aware of the one with the deer, though additional examples, of course depending on the region, include ones with elks, moose, panthers, kangaroos, as well as ducks.

Sometimes, you might also see a smaller rectangular sign underneath those signs that reads “Next _ Miles/km”, which of course proves that the crossing goes on for that length.

A few other times though, you might see a light above that sign, with the smaller rectangular sign instead reading “When Flashing.”

Of course though, not all crossing signs are animal ones. You presumably have seen pedestrian crossing signs (or crosswalk signs if you prefer) multiple times in the past.

There also can be crossing signs for vehicles as well. One such example would be one for snowmobiles, at least in the winter season.

A second would also be one for tractors.

Just consider how important and interesting it would be seeing those crossing with their respective signs (though it still would make your drive slightly longer, though if you enjoy driving around, then you might presumably insist.)

Plus, signs for aircraft flying lowly may read either “Low Flying Aircraft” or just have “Aircraft” replaced with “Planes.”

Additionally, rock slide warning signs exist as well. They rather vary as well; six examples include them reading “Rock Slide Area,”,”Slide Area,” contain just images of rocks tumbling down a cliff, or the same image with a car by it added as well.

There are also warning signs for narrow bridges, whether it reads ‘Narrow Bridge” or has an image of that instead.

There are warning signs for snow slide areas as well.

Plus, the restaurants connected to gas stations you see can be independent or involved in a chain.

Plus, a number of rest areas among interstates may include picnic spots or playgrounds.

Finally, a certain number of rest areas might include an overnight parking for RVs as well.

So as of this second, you do have those extra road trip details in mind (at least following reading this post) for your upcoming road trips also.
