Don't Forget An Emergency Roadside Kit

It doesn't matter if you are setting out for work or a two-week road trip. You should always make sure that you have an emergency roadside kit in your vehicle. But what should be in your emergency roadside kit?

  • Three reflective warning triangles that in the event you are broken down on the side of the road should be placed 50 feet apart to alert oncoming traffic.
  • Flash light with extra batteries. We all have cell phones that have lights on them but if you are stuck on the side of the road you will want to save your phone's battery to call for help.
  • An extra blanket. It is better to be safe than sorry and it is certainly better to be warm than sorry. An extra blanket could be a life saver if you are broken down during the winter.
  • Bottle water and non-perishable snacks. Who knows how long you may be waiting for a tow truck to come so it is always a good idea to keep some food and water just in case.
  • Jumper cables. Jumper cables can easily get you back on the road and you can also help other drivers out too.

These are just a few of the most important things that you should include in your emergency roadside kit. You may also want to include duct tape, a first aid kid, and a phone charger.
