What Every Driver Should Keep in the Car

Drivers in Ball Ground, GA enjoy the benefit of driving in a small city with a great deal of southern charm. However, that doesn’t mean there never will come a time when an emergency happens on the road. Although it’s oftentimes not preventable, you can prepare to create a better outcome.

1. Insurance Cards and Registration

You’re supposed to carry your insurance cards and registration in your vehicle because of the law, but it’s important for your own benefit as well. If you get into an accident, you’ll need these documents handy.

2. A Jack

Always carry a jack in your car. If you need to change a tire, this is a requirement. You should also have a spare tire and a tire iron.

3. Car Manual

Every car is different, so if you should happen to break down and had a similar problem in your last vehicle, it might not be the same problem. You’ll be able to use the manual to assist in both diagnosing and repairing.

4. Duct Tape

Duct tape comes in handy in many situations. You can use it to tape down the hood, and you could even get creative and think of your own ways to use it.

5. Flashlight and Batteries

Always keep a flashlight and batteries in your car. This way, no matter what time of the night it is that you break down, you’re able to get a decent view of under the hood.

6. Flares

You never know when you’re going to break down alongside of the road. You want other cars to be able to see you and your vehicle.

7. Car Charger

Never leave your home without a car charger. Nowadays, pay phones are obsolete, so drivers must depend on their mobile device.
