Keeping an emergency kit at all times can help you in times of need. Most of these items will come in handy because you never know when you may experience a breakdown or catastrophic car accident.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are more than 6 million reported vehicle accidents each year in the United States.
