Essentials to Keep in Your Car

Good Items to Keep in Your Car at All Time 

When taking a seemingly straightforward journey, nobody ever expects to break down, run out of fuel, get lost, or have an accident. All too often, the drivers involved are left woefully ill-equipped to cope in such situations. But with a little planning and trunk space, you can put together an emergency safety pack for your car, including securing auto insurance in Reading, PA. While you may never need to use the safety kit, it’s good to know it’s there, just in case.

  • Hazard triangle – Essential for alerting other road users you have broken down.
  • Breakdown service contact details and insurance company contact details – This essential information will help when you’re roadside.
  • Spare tire/jack – Even if you don’t know how to change a tire, chances are someone will.
  • Roadmap – If your navigational system or phone lose service, you can rely on a paper map for when you are lost.
  • First aid kit – This should contain the basics for patching up in an emergency.
  • Water – Sealed to keep in fresh. Store for drinking or in an emergency to top up the radiator or windshield water bottle.
  • Non-perishable food – In case you need to keep your energy up while waiting for assistance.
  • Flashlight – If you need to check under the hood when lighting is poor.
  • Empty gas can – Avoid carrying spare fuel as this increases the risk of fire in accidents. Carry an empty can in case you run out so you can walk to the nearest gas station and fill up.
