Roadside Emergency: What To Carry In Your Vehicle

You never know what you are going to need in a roadside emergency. Tires can blowout, the engine may stall, but having a few safety items in the vehicle can help.

Jumper cables

If you have ever left your lights on, you know how handy a pair of jumper cables can be. Learn how to jump-start your car before you need to, and you will need to drive the car for 10 or 20 minutes after the jump, to charge back up the battery.

A flashlight with fresh batteries

Accidents happen at night. A flashlight will help you find tools and help other drivers see you. If you have to walk to safety, the flashlight will lead the way.


If your tire has a slow leak, a can of fix-a-flat can get you to a mechanic. This canister attaches to the tire's valve stem and sprays in a solution to temporary fix the tire.

Stop by Union Park BMW located in Wilmington to have your tires and car inspected by our service technicians. We would be happy to help.
