How to Stay Prepared for Vehicle Emergencies in 2020
January 2, 2020
If you’ve ever been stranded with a broken-down vehicle, then you know how frustrating it can be, and if you haven’t been, then trust us – you don’t want to. If you ever do find yourself stranded, you’ll find that had you prepped your car even just a little bit, you could’ve made your situation much better. As an experienced Davidsonville, MD auto repair professional, we wanted to take some time today to talk about a few of the items that you should keep in your car for emergency situations.
A Spare Tire, Wheel Wrench, and Tripod Jack
One of the most common reasons for being stranded in the first place is having a flat tire. You can avert this disaster quite easily by simply having a spare tire, as well as the tools necessary to install the tire. Keep in mind though, that a spare tire is just a temporary fix designed to just get you to your local Davidsonville, MD auto repair shop.
Salt or Kitty Litter
These items are essential during the winter months. Living in Maryland, we know how much snow our state can get, and all of this snow can cause our vehicle’s tires to get bogged down. Having a bag of salt or kitty litter in the trunk of your car can save you from the trouble of getting stuck. All you have to do is sprinkle a good bit under your tires, and the grittiness of the salt or kitty litter will help give your tires the extra traction they need.
A First Aid Kit
No emergency is quite as bad as a medical emergency, which is why it’s always a good idea to have a first aid kit in your car. Some people may just have a few medical supplies (band-aids, aspirin, etc.) in their vehicle, but you never know what kind of medical emergency you may be dealing with and may need more supplies. This is why you should keep a fully-stocked first aid kit in your vehicle, as opposed to just having a few odds and ends.
