Can I be motzi someone else in Tefilas Haderech, or does each person have to say it himself?


There is no problem with one person being motzi another in tefillas haderech. In fact, when there are more than two people, it is preferable that one should be motzi the others, on account of the pricniple of berov am hadras melech (there is greater glory for the King in numbers).

Sources: See Shulchan Aruch 298:14 concerning the blessing of me’orei ha’eish; see also Shulchan Aruch 8:5, Gra 12, and Mishnah Berurah 13, concerning tzitzis.
