Everyone loves a good road trip. California is a beautiful long state with many attractions starting at the very north end of the state down to the very south. Because we are such a densely populated state, there is always a lot of roadway traffic. From cars to SUVs to big rigs, we have to learn to share the road and ride along safely beside others.
