During your daily drives, you'll likely be safe from any type of incident on the road. There may come a time, however, when you run into issues. In these situations, you'll want to be prepared to keep yourself safe by having a roadside emergency kit.

These kits should have a variety of items in them. At Carbone Subaru in Troy, NY, we recommend that people carry first aid kits, flashlights, reflectors, and roadside flares. These are simple things that can make a big difference in terms of safety and visibility.

We also think it's a good idea to keep jumper cables and any equipment you'll need to change a tire in your vehicle. Battery failures and flat tires are some of the more common things that give drivers problems. The equipment and/or your vehicle's manual should have instructions. You may want to periodically review these so you're familiar with them.
