Staying Safe During a Roadside Emergency

Things can happen at any time, and that's why you should be prepared for anything while driving. Keeping some emergency items in your vehicle is a first step, as is making sure your vehicle's components are in optimal condition.

In your emergency kit, you should have water, jumper cables, a basic tool set, a first aid kit, flares, and a flashlight. You should also keep kitty litter or sand in the trunk to help with traction if you deal with slippery winter conditions. If something does happen where your vehicle is disabled, pull safely off the road. Put on your hazard lights and use flares to alert others to your presence. Call for assistance and wait for a professional to arrive.

Making sure your vehicle is well-maintained can help you prevent potential problems from occurring. Visit Parks Ford of Wesley Chapel in Wesley Chapel, FL to schedule a service appointment.
