Weâ€™ve all been there, cruising down the road in our cars, on our way home or on our way somewhere exciting when â€“ BAM! Your car breaks down, you get in an accident, or the weather has you stuck on the side of the road. This infographic gauges how prepared you are based on whatâ€™s already in your car in case of a situation and also helps guide you into building a better emergency car kit to help get you through any events.
When youâ€™re stuck on the side of the road, the last thing you want is to be cold, hungry, thirsty and helpless with a dead cell phone. Youâ€™ll thank yourself later for taking some time to put together an emergency car kit for whatever life throws your way, even if itâ€™s just keeping a poncho and flashlight in your car.
