Driving Tips: 17 Must Have Items

Despite all of the technology found in cars today, along with convenience of roadside assistance, there are certain items that you should always have in your car.  Perhaps you get a flat tire, or your in-car navigation system freezes:  a tire-pressure gauge and a good old fashioned map would come in handy.  If a symbol illuminates in your instrument cluster that you’re unfamiliar with, (we’ve all had this happen at some point), you’ll probably want to look it up in the owner’s manual.

In no particular order, the list of must-have items is as follows:

1. Flashlight

2. Tire Pressure Gauge

3. First-Aid Kit

4. Owner’s Manual

5. Tire-changing Tools

6. Warning triangles

7. Multi-tool

8. Fuses

9. Jumper cables

10. Tape

11. Map/Atlas

12. Paper towels (if nothing more than to blow your nose!)

13. Spare key

14. Pail or bucket

15. Garbage bags

16. Gloves

17. Old Cell Phone
