How to prepare your car for any weather and how to make car accident claims in South Kesteven
Your car should always have everything you need in it for an emergency, so that you know there is no chance of you getting stranded in bad weather, or because the car has broken down. If you always have everything you need in your car, in case of any situation, you can comfortably drive alone and know that you are completely safe.
The most common type of problem you will run into is bad weather, and this can strike in summer just as easily as in winter, so you should always have the car prepared. Here are some of the things that you might want to have on standby in the car.
- Bring a spare mobile phone. One of the best weapons you can have in any emergency is a fully charged mobile phone so that you can call for the emergency services, for roadside assistance and so on. If you keep a charged mobile turned off in the glove compartment, then you know that you will always have access to a phone when you need one.
- Bring spare clothing and blankets. If it gets very cold or you are stranded somewhere wet or cold, it is easy to get hypothermia. You can avoid this by having a spare set of clothes or blankets in the car to layer up with.
- Have cat litter or grit. This allows you to get traction if you get stuck in either mud or snow, and will help you on icy roads as well. A small bag of this will get you out of a very dangerous situation.
- Make sure your windscreen wipers are checked regularly. Get your windscreen wipers checked every time you get a service, or even more regularly if you want to, so you know they are working properly when you need them. The last thing you want is to find out that they aren’t working at the worst possible moment.
