How to Make the Right Type of Roadside Emergency Kit

Here are some of the essentials to pack inside your car's roadside emergency kit. Be sure you have a bag with a nice variety of tools so that you can make many small repairs easily. Rod flares or triangles are important for letting other drivers know you're disabled. Blankets will keep passengers warm if you are disabled somewhere for a while in cooler weather.

Keep a few quarts of oil and a gallon of antifreeze in the kit so that if the fluids get low in your engine, you can top them off and minimize the time you're stuck. A flashlight is one of the most important things to have in the kit, along with plenty of fresh batteries so you can work at night making repairs or flag down help.
