This summer you
plan to go on holiday by car to enjoy the scenery, make several stops to rest
and discover different places without forgetting the greatest advantage of
being able to carry as much luggage as you want, especially when you are with
your family! But before taking the road, do not forget to equip your trunk of
cars with some essential tools and reflective tape for a safe trip!
First aid kit:
This is one of the essential equipment in a car. The rescue kit is very useful
in dealing with some minor incidents. It should generally contain sterile
compresses, plasters, soap, wipes, and a pair of scissors, mercurochrome spray,
an anti-scald gel, and a bandage, an antiseptic and disinfectant solution.
The safety vest:
Considered as a useless accessory by many drivers, the fluorescent colors vest
(yellow, orange and pink) and reflective
material can be easily spotted, in case of failure and / or
accident, day and night...
triangle: It is just as important as the high visibility vest. Located about
thirty meters from the vehicle or the location of the incident, it warns other
road users of imminent danger.
Toolbox: To store
a multitude of small tools needed to repair a small breakdown. There is a
series of screwdrivers of different sizes and shapes, a cross-shaped wrench, a
vise grip and a jack for used cars. A spare wheel: Especially if it is a
second-hand car. As its name suggests, the spare wheel is intended for
short-term use. Driving with a spare wheel is then limited to a speed of 80 km
/ h. A flashlight: Always useful as the reflective vest in case of
unexpected on the road especially during the night.
It is strongly
advised to check the various levels of the car including the coolant, the brake
fluid and the engine oil level and of course, the condition of the tires ...
before departure. Good holidays!
