The 5 Most Valuable Car Safety Items
August 1, 2018
There are many factors which affect whether or not a car is safe. So these include the operational health of the car, whether or not it is properly maintained, and more. However, there are also a host of items which help make your car safer beyond what you may normally expect.
Let’s take a look at 5 of them today.
A Jump Starter
You may be familiar with jumper cables, but have you heard of jump starters? Basically, they offer you a jump without having to flag down a stranger. Their cost ranges from about $50 all the way up into the hundreds—but they are well-worth it. Not only do you have a definite jump start for your car, you can also avoid the danger of dealing with strangers late at night on the road.
A Fire Extinguisher
If all goes well, you will never have to use a fire extinguisher. However, life doesn’t always go as planned. If your vehicle catches fire, a fire extinguisher will be a godsend. It can help you avoid major, irreparable damage to your vehicle.
Flares can prove vital if you’re ever stranded on the road with a flat tire or a dead battery. Flares will help other cars easier see you and give them time to slow down and avoid you. This can also help police and fire personnel to find you in the event that it’s dark out and your car has no power or lights.
A First-Aid Kit
A first-aid kit is an absolute essential whether you’re going on a long road trip or just going to work. In your kit you should have bandages, an ice pack, burn cream, a few important medications for pain, nausea, and heartburn, and alcohol wipes. You can assemble a first aid kit yourself or purchase one of the many options on the internet.
Tire Air Pump and Sealer
Odds are you have a spare tire in your car, but you might not have an air pump and sealer. In the event you can’t change your tire or you have more than one tire out of commission, a back-up plan is pretty important. Though sealer won’t fix your tire completely, it can help you get to your local mechanic.
