According to an article at, “Road Trip Check List”

39601886_s“Here is a list of the 10 most important things you should have in your vehicle no matter the season.
• Insurance information & vehicle registration- very important when dealing with the law or if you have an accident.
• Flashlight & spare batteries- There are many reasons to have a flashlight in your vehicle! Break downs, flat tires or other late night adventures.
• First aid kit- just a basic kit will work, you most likely won’t be doing surgery. Band-Aids, antibiotic ointment, aspirin & gauze can come in very handy!
• Jumper Cable- Obviously if you need a jump chances are no one else has them in their vehicle. Be prepared and always have a set in your vehicle.
• Tool Kit-a small set of wrenches, duct tape, crowbar, strong adhesive, Swiss army knife are all good ideas. You can add what best fits your tool box needs.
• Tire repair kit/spare tire & gage. Tires are important so having a spare or a repair kit is very important.” To read the entire article click here.
