What’s In Your Summer Driving Emergency Kit?

When it comes to planning for driving emergencies, you might think a preparedness kit is something that is only necessary during the winter. However, emergencies can occur when we least expect them, and that includes during the summer. Summer brings its own set of complications, so it’s important to prepare accordingly. We’ve compiled a list of necessary items, courtesy off The Safe Driver blog, that you can use to jump-start your planning.
  • A medium-sized plastic bin or duffel bag in which to put everything.
  • Reflective triangles or flares.
  • Well-stocked first-aid kit with cold compresses.
  • Tire pressure gauge, pump, tire sealant.
  • Small tool kit.
  • Sunscreen/bug spray.
  • Umbrella or rain jacket.
  • Jumper cables.
  • Portable phone charger.
  • Water.
  • Non-perishable snacks.
  • Rags and/or towels.
  • Windshield washer fluid.
  • Toilet paper.

Of course, ideally, we would love it if problems like breakdowns and accidents never happened.
