Automotive Knowledge | Roadside Emergency Kits

A roadside emergency kit can be your best friend when you encounter a problem on the road. Being prepared will help you get through most emergencies with few complications. Items to keep in your car at all times include flares, a blanket, first aid supplies, small tools and replacement fluids.

Flares are important to signal your position in the event that you're in a hard-to-see space, like a ditch, or if it's night on a poorly-lit road. A blanket will keep you warm if it's cold out or if you're in shock after an accident. It's always a good idea to have some first aid supplies near at hand. Extra oil, antifreeze, and windshield fluid can be the difference between getting moving again quickly and remaining stuck.
