Car-related emergencies can never be predicted. When you are stuck in a situation, such as getting stranded due to a flat tire, this is the thought to pop into your mind, “I wish I had thought of this before and taken the necessary precautions”. That is why it is better to be prepared in advance so that you aren’t caught unawares should something happen!
A safety kit must always be kept in your car for emergencies, which should contain:
· You never know how long you might be forced to wait before you can get help. Store non-perishable food items in your car so that you don’t feel hungry during the wait. Keep distilled water with you at all times to quench your thirst and also pour some into your radiator to cool down the engine.
· While you are stuck on the road because of a breakdown on a chilly winter night, you need something to combat the cold. A blanket can serve the purpose and it doesn’t even take up too much space in the trunk. Moreover, if you have to change a tire, you can use the blanket to lie upon it, so that it can provide some comfort during the task.
