Over looked driver safety tip.

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in My Kind of Driving

We as motorist take for granted that getting to point A to B is going to be smooth sailing.  In actuality that couldn’t be further from the truth.  One over looked driver safety tip is being proactive in cases of emergency.  Often, we don’t think about what we need in an emergency situation until we’re in one. This is a pretty detailed list of some important things to keep our vehicles in case of an emergency:

Spare tire (be sure to have it checked each time you have your tires rotated)

Jack

Scissors/Sharp Cutting Device

Tool box with screwdrivers and wrenches

Car owner’s manual

Blanket

Small hammer

Flares

Fuses

Snack food and bottled water

Sealant for small leaks in tires (this is a temporary fix)

Duct tape

Fire extinguisher

Empty gas can

Can of motor oil

Portable radio with spare batteries

Emergency phone numbers of family and friends

Insurance information

Car registration

Flash light with spare batteries

First aid kit with pre-moistened towelettes and sanitizer

Jumper cables

Tire pressure gauge

Paper and Pen/Pencil

Window scraper for ice

Cell phone
