Essential elements to travel on the road
If you go out on the roads of Colombia, take your ID with you. Do not forget to include in your carry-on baggage the identity card, the driver’s license, and the SOAT to the day of the vehicle.
Also, make sure it is easy to identify your EPS or prepaid medicine, the hospital centers to which you could be taken, and some contact information.
If you travel in your vehicle, remember to take the road equipment
You can not miss it! The road equipment is not negotiable because, in addition to having as its purpose the well-being of the driver and that of the passengers, it is an obligation in the country. In effect, the Law 769 of 2002 ensures that no vehicle can travel through the roads of the national territory without carrying the following elements.
- A jack capable of raising the vehicle.
- A cross.
- Two road signs in the form of a triangle in reflective material provided with supports to be placed vertically or intermittent or flashing yellow light signal lamps.
- A first aid kit.
- A fire extinguisher.
- Two studs to block the vehicle.
- The primary tool box must contain at least: Pliers, screwdrivers, expansion wrench, and fixed wrenches.
- Spare tire.
Avoid accidents with the technical-mechanical revision.
Before leaving, identify if it is up to you to conduct the technical-mechanical review. This is the best investment you can make for personal and family safety. The District Secretariat of Mobility of Bogotá explains that new private service vehicles must carry out the first technical-mechanical review of polluting emissions from the sixth (6th) year, counted from the registration date.
Finally, we invite you to drive with complete peace of mind through the country’s municipalities with risk insurance. This policy is designed to accompany you before, during, and after any eventuality that occurs with your car and that may interrupt your daily life or that of your family members.
Nothing better than discovering the country of magical realism in your vehicle, making the necessary stops to contemplate the landscape and enjoy every detail. Get ready to travel on the road! It will be an enriching and safe adventure, as long as you have the certainty of knowing that in the face of any unforeseen event, the well-being of your loved ones is secure.
