Safety Tips: Tools You Need If Car Breaks Down

Newark police provide a checklist of basic tools for your car.

From Newark Police

"There's no way it could ever happen to me!" 

Unfortunately that has been the statement of many a person who left with their vehicle ill-equipped and found themselves stranded without the right tools and gear to survive or make simple repairs.

Consider the inevitable, that you may be going out for what should be a nice, fun drive but then turns into a problem outing.

Some of the basic car break-down survival tools include: 

• Spare tire & equipment
• Flashlight 
• First aid kit
• Fire extinguisher 
• Blanket
• Maps or GPS 
• Basic tools
• Flares, traffic triangles or lights 

Take time today to conduct an inspection of your vehicle to make sure it's well equipped in the event of an emergency.

And don't forget to check the air in the spare!
