Whether you drive across town to work or you are planning a cross-country trip, it is important to stock your car with an emergency kit to keep you safe. When you are considering what to put in an emergency kit, consider some of the most common problems you may encounter. Make sure that you have roadside flares, flashlights, and a basic bag of tools. You should also have jumper cables, spare fuses, extra wiring and a collapsible shovel. It is also best to keep a spare tire in good condition with a lug wrench and a car jack, just in case of a flat.
If you live in an area where snow is a concern, a heavy-duty set of tire chains and a small bag of rock salt may be beneficial as well. Finally, consider a blanket or something similar to keep you warm in case you are waiting on a tow truck in the cold.
