Items to keep in your car:
-Owner’s manual: This should naturally be in your glove compartment anyway, but you want to make sure that it is indeed in your car. The owner’s manual provides a ton of useful information that can get you back on the road, such as detailed images of how to change a tire and so forth.
-Old cellular phone: powered off, with a fully charged battery An old cellular phone, even without subscription, can be powered on to call emergency numbers.
-Blankets: Even if the weather is nice, you could wind up having to spend several night-time hours in your car. A blanket makes it possible for you to curl up, keep warm, and sleep.
-Bottled water: This is necessary for sustenance if you get stuck somewhere and have to wait for a while.
-Maps: Keep a detailed map of the state you’re in in your car at all times. Don’t completely rely on a GPS navigation system.
-Jumper cables: These can enable you to get your car started with a dead battery (if a good Samaritan comes along) and also enables you to help someone out in a fix.
-First aid kit: This can be vital if you’re in an accident and someone has injuries
-torch (and extra batteries) Similarly, a torch is utterly essential at night if you need to change a tyre.
-Written copy of emergency numbers, including your insurance company.
