10 Ordinary Items To Keep In Your Car That Might Save Your Life One Day.
Lots of people like to take trips by car. It’s a great way to see the country or maybe just your local region. While you are expecting to have a fun time, the reality is that you never know what might happen. Even the best and newest cars break down sometimes. You just never know when it’s going to happen.
In most cases when it does happen it’s not in a good area. It can be a deserted back road or somewhere that is truly in the middle of nowhere. A person needs to be prepared for those situations because it can quickly turn into a life or death situation if you aren’t prepared.
Nobody thinks it can happen to them and some people can go an entire lifetime without ever facing this sort of dire situation. Those people are lucky but they still have to be prepared. Even if it doesn’t happen to them it’s good to have these items in their vehicle so maybe they can help someone else they come across that needs help.
The following things are items that should be in every car that’s on the road. Everything can be easily stored in a backpack under a back seat or in the trunk. Don’t find excuses not to have them. Even if you never have to use them it’s good to be prepared for the worst.
You always want to have a backpack.
When your car breaks down it never happens in a convenient spot. The backpack can hold everything you need and store it away easily. It's the best way to condense everything you should have in there.
Always have a full tank of gas.
Always have a full tank of gas. If you are going anywhere more than twenty minutes away it's a good rule to have. You just never know what you will encounter along the way. A full tank of gas will avoid those situations of running low in desolate areas.
Warm clothing is a must to have.
You should always have warm clothing stored in your vehicle. It doesn't matter where you live, sometimes night weather can be cold and/or rainy. Staying warm is key when your vehicle fails you.
Light sources are important as you may need them at night.
Flashlights with batteries along with candles and matches are good to store in the car. You never know how long you may be stranded in a broken down vehicle.
A first aid kit is something that should be a no brainer.
Just like at home, a first aid kit is a must have in any vehicle. Make sure that it's filled with all of the essentials. If you buy a new one they usually come with everything you may need.
