4 Things You Should Always Keep in Your Car in Case of an Emergency, Madison, Wisconsin

If you’ve ever been stranded on the side of the road or in a parking lot, then you know how frustrating it can be waiting for a towing company or a friend or relative to come to your rescue. To help make this situation easier, the experts at ABRA Auto share four items you should always keep in your car.

4 Items You Should Always Have on Hand

1. Jumper Cables automotive

Your car may not start if your battery is low, so always keep a pair of jumper cables in your trunk or back seat. Wave down a passerby to help you jumpstart the engine.

2. Spare Tire

Keeping a spare tire in your vehicle can save you from a massive towing bill. You should also learn how to change your tire so that you don’t have to call for help. 

3. Flashlight

Keep a flashlight in your glove box in case you get stranded at night. Also, make sure you store extra batteries, and rotate the old ones out every few months.

4. Warm Clothes

It’s incredibly important to keep warm clothes and blankets on hand in case your car breaks down or you get into an accident during the winter. Always keep a pair of gloves, a warm jacket, an extra pair of socks, a toboggan, and a thick blanket in your trunk.
