I don't own a car, as it just isn't essential in NYC. But my parents live in the country and my dad drives a lot. He travels from his small-ish town to larger cities about once or twice a week to run errands. Sundays, he drives to church, which is about 45 minutes away. He is travelling on mountain curves, over bridges, and just covering a lot of road. I always tell him to dive carefully, but lately I'm thinking he needs some safety gear in his car...just in case.
Like I did a few weeks ago when we chatted about home emergency preparedness kits, I checked out what we should all have in our cars for emergencies. Many of this stuff, I didn't even think about, but it makes total sense. Look over this list, folks:
Emergency blanket or tarp
LifeHammer (in the glove compartment to cut through a seatbelt if needed)
Hand warmers (especially if you are in a cold climate)
Non-perishable snacks (like granola bars or the like)
First aid kit
A bit of cash in small bills
Do you have all of these items in your car? What am I missing on this list?
