In Case of Emergency: Open Trunk

Jumper Cables (resize)You can run into any number of troubles when driving. While you may not be able to predict what will befall you on the road, you can prepare for a few common problems by keeping some items in your car at all times.

Consider your specific circumstances

Many websites will give you a list of about a dozen or more things to stash. For example, some will say keep spare blankets in your car, but do you need those if you’re not at risk for being stranded in cold weather? Think about where you live, where you drive, and imagine the worst case scenario for those places.

Always take the basics

Even though there are some geography-specific items you may or may not need, every driver will find a few particular things very handy. MSN offers a list of 17 things, including gloves, paper towels and garbage bags. Consider these among the most important on that list:

  • Jumper cables
  • Your car’s owner’s manual
  • A flashlight
  • A first aid kit
  • A multi-tool
  • Tire changing tools

Of course, keep you cell phone with you so you can call for help. If you have all the requisite tire changing tools but don’t know how to do it, you still need help. Also make sure the phone is charged and keep a car charger with you.
