Unfortunate and downright unlucky events can happen to the best of us, which is why you need to be prepared for emergencies on the road every time you hop in your car and turn the ignition.
Being prepared for an emergency first starts with packing a good emergency kit in your car. A first aid kit, blankets, a bottle of water, flares, a flashlight, batteries, and an extra mobile phone are all good ideas to pack in your emergency kit. Even if you never use these emergency items for yourself, it’s always possible that you’ll come across another driver who really could make use of your emergency supplies.
