St. Christopher is the saint of safe travel. People wear St. Christoper medals to bless them with safety.
Aside from people wearing a medal, a "visor clip" or other auto accessory with a St. Christoper medal displayed (and sometimes a prayer on it) is used to protect both a vehicle and the people inside during travel. These are often sold in Catholic and christian gift shops and bookstores. These can be blessed by a priest or someone qualified to bless them. And, as far as I know, may be used on a boat, in a car, in a motor home, RV, motorcycle, scooter, any form of travel.
Over the centuries, St. Christopher became hugely popular with Catholics and non-Catholics alike. He is the patron saint of travelers, sailors, bachelors, skiers, epileptics, gardeners, toothache sufferers and surfers.
In 1969, the Catholic Church removed Christopher from the universal calendar of saints, though it allowed the celebration of his feast in local and diocesan calendars. Unfortunately many people believe that the Church removed Christopher's sainthood status, which is not the case. It merely concluded that there was too little known about him to justify a feast.
