Allen Park, MI (PRWEB) December 19, 2009
Tis the Season to be Merry… and safe. Here are some safety kit tips for all drivers to be prepared in those unexpected circumstances.
"Traffic can be frustrating, especially on interstates during the holiday season and unfortunately, accidents happen and cars do sometimes break down," said Don Barnes III, Belle Tire Operations and Marketing Manager "From all of us at Belle Tire, we wish you and yours a very happy and safe holiday season."
Cars come pretty well equipped these days, but one thing all drivers need to add is an auto safety kit. Things may go wrong unexpectedly and all drivers need to be prepared. Whether drivers put one together or purchase a pre-packaged kit from an auto store, auto safety kits are very affordable and can really make the difference in an emergency.
Drivers can have items as sophisticated as an air compressor powered by the cars cigarette lighter or power port, but should include a flashlight, jumper cables, reflectors, first aid kit …even a spare lug wrench and a collapsible shovel.
And in Michigan and Ohio (or any other colder locations), it’s a good idea to add a blanket, gloves, rain poncho, some basic tools, and granola or energy bars and bottled water. Plus, remember one of the best safety items might be in your pocket -- a cell phone to call for help. A back-up battery for your cell phone or extra car cord is a great item to add to your kit.
