Keep an Emergency Kit in Your Car
It is estimated that one in three drivers will end up having to stop on the side of the road at some point and since we cannot always predict when this can happen to us, it is best to take precautionary measures and make our lives easier.
Having an emergency kit in your car is very important and here is what it should include:
- Warning reflective triangles or LED indicators
Reflective triangles or LEDs are safe and easy to use. If your car has a breakdown in the middle of the road, you will be able to communicate your presence to other drivers, which may reduce accidents.
- A fully equipped first aid kit
This kit should also be checked periodically to make sure nothing in there has expired or been affected by heat or moisture.
- Tire repair kit
There are plenty of tire repair methods, including solutions or foam sprays that fill minor rubber holes – which is very useful until you can reach a mechanic. Purchase a kit and keep it in your car for any eventuality.
- Phone charger
Phone batteries are rapidly discharging nowadays and the last thing you want, if you are stuck in the middle of nowhere, is to not be able to make a call because your phone battery is dead
To these accessories in your car emergency kit, you should add the fire extinguisher as well as essential tools for the winter. Have a Merry Christmas and a safe Happy New year from the folks at MasterDrive in Fort Collins.
