1. Before departing hold a drivers meeting and give each driver a printout of the route turn by turn with odometer reading. Review the road rules. Assign someone with a radio to be the sweeper. (The sweeper is the last car that lets the group leader know when everyone has made a light or a turn onto a new road.) Determine a radio frequency to set the GMRS/FRS family radios.

2. Lights on. Set odometers to zero. Do a radio check.

3. Generally speaking only eight or ten cars can make it through a traffic light before it changes. If your drive group is larger than ten, it is best to break it down into separate groups with a different leader and sweeper. Separate the groups by approximately five to ten minutes so as to avoid confusion on the radios. You may wish to use different channel frequencies.
