How to Prepare for a Potential Roadside Emergency

Preparation is the key when it comes to surviving any roadside emergency. Here are a few things to consider today while you are home safe.
  • Be sure to keep an empty gas can in the trunk. Rather than walk to a service station, someone offering help can assist.
  • Keep a gallon of water in the trunk just in case the engine overheats. This will allow you to drive to a service station and get off the highway.
  • A roll of duct table in the toolbox can be handy for patching a hole in your radiator hose so you can drive to the service station.
  • Road flares and safety triangles are essential for warning other drivers your vehicle is disabled. Just be sure to place them far enough up the road so cars can slow down.
