    Creating an Emergency Kit for Your Car

    Last updated 1 day 9 hours ago

    No car is perfect, and neither is any driver. An emergency kit can help to keep you safe while you wait for roadside assistance. Here are a few tips for creating an emergency kit for your car. 

    Survival Materials

    It is important to have certain survival materials with you at all times. Not every breakdown will be a life or death situation, but it is better to have your bases covered in cases that involve inclement weather or other danger. Granola bars, energy bars, or any other type of small snack that is loaded with protein and nutrients are always helpful. Bottles of water are also key elements for your emergency kit. Bring along a blanket because some areas can get cold at night, even during the warmer months of the year.

    Attention Tools

    If you break down in an unfamiliar area and either do not have cell phone service or the number for a tow truck, you will need tools that can help you attract attention. Roadside flares and a help sign can both be effective in attracting the attention of other drivers who can help you out. A flashlight can be used for a multitude of different purposes, and attracting attention is one of them. When you are creating your emergency kit, be sure to bring along plenty of items that can help make you as visible as possible.

    Repair Equipment

    Your emergency kit should also have tools that can help you get yourself back on the road. If you are simply stuck due to a dead battery, jumper cables can get you going again. You should also bring screwdrivers, pliers, wrenches, and tire pressure gauges. Even paper towels and duct tape may be enough to get yourself back on the road depending on your situation.

    Identifying Wear on Your Car's Tires

    Last updated 8 days ago

    It is important to be able to assess the wear on your tires in order to provide the proper maintenance. Watch this video for help in identifying wear on your car’s tires.

    Your tires are burdened with bearing the weight of your vehicle, and a small amount of your tires touches the ground at one time. When you inspect your tires, look across the whole tread. If you see a white line around the outside of the tire, you may have a suspension problem; the same is true if the tire is worn only on the inside. Be careful not to overinflate your tires or you will wear out the center.
