The Necessary Tools

It can be incredibly difficult to deal with a flat tire, a dead battery, or an overheated engine if you don't have the necessary tools to fix the issue. What are you going to do? Blow air into the tire? To get out of the unfortunate (and potentially dangerous) circumstance rapidly and effectively, not only will you need some basic equipment, but you'll also need the knowledge of how to employ them correctly. If you don't have a lot of experience or strong mechanic skills, it is a good idea to enroll in a course that can help you repair common vehicular malfunctions. This, so you can get yourself out of trouble if something like that were to take place. Lastly, remember to inspect those tools and equipment with some regularity. During your inspection, assess their condition and decide if they'll be able to help you in case of an emergency. If they won't, get them repaired or replaced, so you don't ever have to go without them. Those necessary tools may include:
  • a tire iron
  • a spare tire
  • jumper cables
  • a tire jack
  • a new gas can
  • a bottle of coolant
  • reflective triangles
  • a siphon pump

An Equipped Emergency Kit

Having an emergency in a vehicle can mean a lot more things than simply experiencing a vehicular malfunction. In fact, almost anything that could happen at home, could happen to you in your vehicle: you could get injured, have a fire, face a natural disaster, among other mishaps, accidents, and dire situations. That's why, just as you have in your home, it is necessary that you keep a fully equipped emergency kit in your vehicle. However, for it to be useful to you in an urgent scenario, you need to know how to employ each of its equipment, guarantee that it's in good enough shape, and restock it whenever necessary. Use the following list so you know what to include in your emergency kit:
  • bottled water
  • non-perishable foods
  • blankets
  • a fire extinguisher
  • charged cell phone and its charger
  • basic medical equipment (such as alcohol, band-aids, disposable gloves, syringes, and thermometers).
  • medicine (like antihistamines, antiseptics, antibiotics, paracetamol, etc.)

Important Information and Papers

What happens when you're stopped by the police? When you need someone to come and help you? When you get into a car accident? In those circumstances, having a fire extinguisher, a band-aid, or an extra tire won't be of much assistance. To get out of those situations effectively, you require certain information and documentation. For example, if a policeman were to stop your vehicle, they'd probably request to see your updated license and registration, which is why it's imperative that you keep it in your vehicle at all times. If you're at a loss of what some of the important information and papers you should keep in your vehicle are, here's some guidance:
  • the contact information of trustworthy friends and/or relatives
  • the contact information of a reliable mechanic
  • the contact information of the authorities
  • your insurance papers and/or information
  • an updated version of your license
  • an updated version of your vehicle's registration
  • your vehicle's owner's manual

Miscellaneous Objects

The last few objects in this post may seem a bit random, but they can be immensely helpful if the situation calls for them. Still, while it's smart to have these items in your vehicle, you should know that this doesn't give you permission to treat your vehicle as if it were a junk yard. In fact, making your vehicle heavy with your belongings can get in the way of its performance and of its fuel efficiency, so try to keep it light. If you're unsure of what miscellaneous objects to have in your vehicle, here are a few ideas:
  • emergency cash
  • a bottle of hand sanitizer
  • tissues
  • an umbrella
  • a lighter
  • a pair of scissors
  • a change of clothes and a jacket
  • a flashlight
  • batteries
