B 4 Hitting The Road (pt1)

Emergency Car Care Kit (pt 1)

It's something you are not likely to think about until it's too late. Or maybe you think nothing will go wrong with your car; breakdowns are something that happen to other people. But your car may eventually break down on the side of the road, and there may not be service station nearby that can get to your vehicle quickly. In addition, you may break down in the middle of rush hour on a busy freeway or in the middle of a sun-baked desert. The temperature may be well below zero or it may be hovering in the triple digits. Regardless of the scenario, you will wish you had an emergency kit handy so you can get your car back on the road.
This kit takes little time to prepare and can be stocked full of the things you might need when you run into trouble on the road.
A flashlight, for instance, is handy when you need to inspect your engine at night. Flares set out along your vehicle make it clear to other drivers your car is on the side of the road. Duct tape is good to make quick repairs to leaky hoses. These are just a few of the items you should consider packing into an emergency kit that you can store in your trunk.
Find a cardboard box and store the items in the back of your trunk. Although it may seem like a waste of space, you will be glad you have your emergency kit when you have car trouble on the road.
