Given that so many of us spend so much time in our vehicles, it stands to reason that we should all carry some basic maintenance and survival/safety gear. I think our cars offer us a false safety/haven… We know they will keep us dry and warm and we often go out in them with inappropriate clothing etc. If you break down 10 miles from home in the middle of winter without the right clothing, you could be in big trouble.
It’s not just about the clothing though, I think everyone should pack a small kit in their car in case of break down or emergency – simple things like a few blankets, a flashlight and some snacks and water can make all the difference.
