The Importance of Building a Roadside Emergency Kit

Taking the time to make your own roadside emergency kit could make all the difference in keeping you safe and getting you back on your way quickly. Keep a small box of tools in the emergency kit. In addition to the tools, a roll of duct tape is one of those things that can be used to make numerous small repairs.

Always keep a flashlight and batteries in your kit because you never know when you might get stranded in the dark and need to flag help or make small repairs. Jumper cables are important to have in your kit because, in the event of a dead battery, anyone who stops to help can potentially jump-start your vehicle now. Always have a can of tire inflation in your kit to get a flat tire off the rim just long enough to move the car to a service station.

Hopefully, this guide brought to you by the Perkins Motor Plex team helps you make the perfect roadside emergency kit for your journeys.
