Even the most cautious of people find themselves in unexpected situations on the road, whether from a pothole, car accident, or breakdown. Take a few easy steps and prepare an emergency kit ahead of time to make sure you are ready to take care of you and your family when the unexpected strikes.
Prepare an emergency kit and store it in your trunk. Pack a flashlight, flares, first-aid kit, jumper cables, paper towels, fresh batteries, gloves, duct tape, bottled water, granola bars, extra washer fluid, extra coolant, a jug of water, emergency satellite phone, and some basic tools (e.g., wrenches, screwdrivers, pliers, and grips).
Even if you don’t know anything about cars, these emergency supplies will be of great help to you and any Good Samaritan that may stop to help. No one looks forward to getting stuck out on the road, but, make sure you are prepared in case it happens.
To help keep your car on the road, make sure to stop by Jiffy Lube of Indiana for your regularly scheduled oil changes and other preventative maintenance.
