Lightbulb [AUS] CB radios and road trips - advice needed


planning a road trip with the family these coming holidays and I thought of CB radios / walkie talkies to be used for communication between vehicles.

Aside from this obvious use, what other uses are there on long road trips? Are there any advantages to hearing about traffic incidents, black spots, blue zones etc?

I read and hear of others who use them on road trips and often during long drives whether business or pleasure related and have not fully understood what good they might serve aside from the basic stuff as above.

Is it really "Smokey and The Bandit" stuff or is it a lot more boring?

I have some .5W, 1W and 2W walkie talkies already and use them for camping, bush walking, working on site and that's about it.

So... any input on how to make better use of these devices on road trips and also advice on road trips with kids would be appreciated
