The Ever-Increasing Importance Of Having A Quality Roadside Emergency Kit

The only thing worse than being stranded by the side of the road is being stranded and ill-prepared for the challenges and hazards that you'll likely face. Even as commute traffic is increasing and new infrastructure is being built in remote locations, many drivers are not ready to deal with the unexpected. At DCH Acura of Temecula, we're committed to helping consumers stock up on all the things that they might need while waiting for roadside assistance.

Be Prepared To Offer First Aid

If a collision leaves you stranded, you should be ready to administer first aid for anyone in need of it. This can be as simple as offering an over-the-counter painkiller for slight bumps or bruises. At other times, you may need to have resources on hand for disinfecting and bandaging wounds, addressing serious allergic reactions, and icing swollen areas among other things. The more comprehensive your first aid kit happens to be; the more problems you'll invariably be able to address.

Make Sure People Can See You

​Among the most important things to have on hand when waiting by the roadside are emergency flares. The surest way to avoid additional problems is by making sure that other drivers can see you. For added visibility, think about stocking up on reflective triangles as well. To shop our extensive selection of emergency roadside kits or to get reliable auto servicing from seasoned professionals, come see us at DCH Acura of Temecula today.
