With the start of the holiday shopping season set to kick off on Black Friday, you may have already started drawing up your list of presents to buy for family and friends.

Roadside emergency kit

No one wants to have their vehicle break down and be stuck on the side of the road, but it’s best to be prepared for these emergency situations.

You can purchase a pre-assembled roadside emergency kit or purchase separate items to create a homemade kit. Suggested items include:

  • Small fire extinguisher
  • First-aid kit
  • Tire pressure gauge
  • Portable electrical or battery-charged tire inflator for flat tires
  • Bottled water and energy bars if you’re stranded for a lengthy period of time
  • Rain poncho, warm clothes and blanket to stay dry and warm at night
  • 12-foot jumper cables
  • Portable car battery charger
  • Heavy duty flashlight and extra batteries
  • Roadside flares and reflective safety vest to make yourself visible at night
  • Small toolkit
  • Work gloves

Hands-free navigation system

Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of accidents, and this includes drivers looking at their phone apps for directions. If your car model doesn’t already have a dashboard screen for such functions, you can buy a portable app that can be viewed on a car dashboard or windshield. Just remember that watching what’s in front of you while driving is your top priority!

Give the gift of safety this holiday season to protect your loved ones!
