Road Rules for Cruising Events

Listed below are some common sense rules and cruising etiquette to help ensure that everyone has an enjoyable time when cruising.  See below for a checklist of essentials to take with you when you go cruising. Remember ... Safety First!

Cruising Etiquette

  • Review maps and/or instructions for an event before the cruise begins.

  • Turn on your driving lights or fog lights on for all cruises.

  • Keep your speed consistent with the rest of the cruisers.

  • Remain one and a half car lengths behind the car in front of you (add more distance as speed increases).

  • Stay alert and obey all traffic laws.

  • Be courteous and let non-cruising vehicles through the cruising line to exit ramps and other roadways.

  • There will be times that we pull over for pictures, pits stops or to allow the cruisers to catch up. When this occurs, stay in your car and listen for additional instructions. Do not changes positions in line unless it is absolutely necessary.

Use of 2-Way Radios During Cruises

  • Always listen for instructions or information throughout the cruise.

  • Follow directions from both the lead and the end cars.

  • Relay information to the front or back of the caravan (as needed).

  • Be cautious of your language, as we may have children or other tender ears attending the cruise, and remember, you are using the public airwaves so anyone listening on the channel can hear you.

  • Help fellow cruisers who may not have radios with them.
