We think that we’ll never be in an emergency situation.  You can never be too prepared.You should have the basic essentials such as water, food, and warmth. You can save money by putting your own accident road kit together. If you decide to buy a prepackaged kit – then you should add things that will keep you warm, dry, fed and hydrated.


The only thing I know how to do for my car is how to put gas in it.  So, I also have a membership in an Auto Club & that’s absolutely essential for idiots like me that know nothing about cars. You never know when something’s going to happen to your car – no matter how well you maintain it or how new the car is.


Vehicle breakdowns do happen and they don’t always strike in a busy street. Sometimes we get into an accident or our car breaks down on a dark night – with no cell phone coverage. We have a lot of open land in Texas and we can’t always get a cell phone connection. If we can’t get a cell phone connection, that means no tow truck. Or no other help.


Take time to get familiar with the items you’ve collected in your accident road kit.  Make sure you know how to use everything. Remember that the most important thing is to use your good judgement. If you have a tire blowout, don’t stop in the high-speed lane to change it.  If possible, veer to the right side of the road. Use your reflective road triangles even if it’s the middle of the day.

If we have a roadside emergency and accident kit, it can ease the pain and reduce the hassle of such breakdowns.
