On the road or off the beaten path, anything can happen. Luckily, these days, if a car or SUV breaks down, a mobile phone is all that's necessary to contact roadside assistance for help. However, that help can sometimes take time to arrive, so it's a good idea to have a roadside emergency kit in your trunk. You can get some, like a first-aid kit, a tire-repair kit, or a more general safety kit, ready-made. You can even make a kit yourself.
What should be in an emergency kit can vary, but it should have some basics, some helpful extras, and some replacement fluids. That means food and water, first aid, a blanket, a flashlight, and extra flashlight batteries, for one. Secondly, it means a triangle reflector, tire sealant, a tire pressure gauge, a tire inflator, jumper cables, and even flares. Thirdly, it means extra motor oil, windshield washer solution, and antifreeze.
There's plenty more you could add as well, like an all-purpose tool kit or even a pocket knife. Use your best judgment about what to put in, based on what you may need if you were to get stranded somewhere. Tailor your kit, too, to your vehicle's age and condition, the kind of driving you do, your seasonal weather, and the overall climate specifically.
