Do you have all the necessary items in your vehicle to help you handle a roadside emergency safely and efficiently?

If you don't already have a roadside emergency kit, now is an excellent time to make one.

Whether your buy your kit premade or you assemble one yourself, these are some items that you should keep in your car at all times:

  • Jumper cables: These should be at least ten feet long with eight-gauge rubber coating.
  • Duct tape: This universal fix-it is ideal for temporary patches.
  • Multi-tool: Something like a Swiss Army Knife or Leatherman tool.
  • Flare alternatives: Something flameless to help warn oncoming traffic. Reflective road triangles or battery-powered emergency beacons are good choices.
  • Waterproof flashlight: Make sure you have extra batteries.

Make sure to bring your car by our service center in Collinsville, IL for a safety checkup before heading out on a road trip!
