You'd be surprised how well Scouts can learn to read a map, if the driver
tells them they won't get there unless they can figure out how to get to
the destination and help give directions. >>
This sounds like a road rally. Could there be a game here "with a purpose"?
In a road rally the cars leave at measured intervals. Such a staggered
departure schedule on a Scout outing would eliminate the danger of tailgating
and rushing to "beat the light".
Same training / safety brief applies: strip maps, speed limits, following
distances, rest stops, rally points, communications, and a vehicle looking
for the lost and broken down.
