Items for Poor Weather

Bad weather can happen anywhere and at any time. That’s why it’s important for drivers to include some form of weather gear in their vehicles. An umbrella is one of the most common items found inside a vehicle, in the event, it starts to rain and drivers need to get out of their vehicles. Blankets are another useful item to have on hand, especially for drivers who live in colder areas. Some drivers like to bring along a dedicated weather radio to monitor severe weather conditions.

Food & Water

Drivers who are travelling long distances, especially through more remote areas, should consider bringing along food and water. While rare, vehicles can break down or get stuck through all sorts of unpredictable situations, and it’s good to have food and water on hand in case it takes a long time for help to arrive.

Jumper Cables

A dying car battery can leave drivers stranded, which is why it’s always a good idea for drivers to keep a set of jumper cables in their vehicles. Once used, these cables should provide your vehicle with enough power to get to a trusted service station, where they can examine the battery and see if there are any underlying issues.
