Making Your Emergency Roadside Assistance Kit

If you're stuck on the side the road you should be prepared with the essentials to keep you and your passengers safe. You can always purchase a roadside emergency kit but it may be more economical and beneficial to make your own. Here are some must-have items to add to your roadside emergency kit:

  • A tire jack and spare tire. You never know when you may run over something and get a flat tire.
  • Jumper cables in case you need to give your car a jumpstart.
  • A flashlight with a couple packages of new batteries.
  • Road flares will help other drivers see you and will create a safety zone for you and your car.
  • A first-aid kit will come in handy if someone has a minor injury.
  • Pack extra clothes, non-perishable food, water, and blankets. You may be stranded for hours and these things may help keep you comfortable while you wait.
