Safety Equipment - Safety Aids

Your car should always have on board, at minimum, the following items:

  • Safety Flares and/or Reflective Triangles. When stopped on a roadside for a flat tire, these can save you from being hit from behind. Place them every 50 feet, or 100 feet if around a curve.
  • First aid kits are always useful, from insect burns, to open wounds. If you use it, remember to re-stock any items.
  • Some basic tools are also essential. Flashlights, jumper cables, screwdrivers, pliers, and an adjustable wrench are a minimum. I also prefer a small folding shovel for mud and snow situations. A worn piece of carpet and a 12-15" square of plywood is also handy for kneeling on the ground, and jack support
  • If you are into winter sports, or are planning a trip that includes mountainous terrain, tire chains are a must. Learn to install them at home, in your warm driveway, before trying to install them in blizzard conditions!
  • Spare dry clothing, boots and gloves, as well as non-perishable foods are great for traveling into unknown or deserted areas.
