Here's What You Need In The Trunk of Your Car

By
Home Builder with PEP source

Every car should have a tool box. Here the items that should be in the tool box: Set of jumper cables, can of "Fix A Flat", set of screw drivers, a pair of pliers, flashlight (with good batteries) roll of duct tape, half of a gallon of anti freeze (if you have room) paper towels, bungee cords. Your car should have come with a spare tire and a lug wrench that fits the lugs on your wheels and a jack, but don't take that for granted, check to make sure that your car is properly equipped with these items.

It does pay to be prepared! I also carry a small air compressor for emergencies.

Morris, I thought all you needed was one of those 'trunk monkeys'? Just kidding! Thank you for the list of necessary items to carry with you!

I would add to have a AAA card in your wallet

Wanda: That's funny, however you probably needs a few more things.

Michelangelo: Having an AAA card in your wallet is also a good thing. It is also great for discounts.

David, when you have a problem, especially on the side of the road it is great to have the right tools to fix whatever is wrong.
