With temperatures beginning to fall in the low 20’s here in Indianapolis, the DMV encourages drivers and commuters to prepare an emergency kit for their vehicles.

The emergency kit can make all the difference between getting back on the road sooner and being prepared every step of the way.

An effective emergency kit will include all of the following items:

  • Roadside flares
  • A first-aid kit
  • Work gloves or latex gloves
  • Two quarts of oil
  • Jumper cables
  • One gallon of antifreeze
  • Brake fluid
  • Extra fuses
  • A blanket
  • A flashlight with fresh batteries
  • A Phillips head screwdriver
  • A flat head screwdriver
  • Vise grips
  • An adjustable wrench
  • A pair of pliers
  • A tire inflator
  • A tire pressure gauge
  • Some rags and a funnel
  • A roll of duct tape
  • A roll of paper towels
  • A spray bottle with washer fluid
  • An ice scraper
  • An AAA or roadside emergency card
  • Triangle reflectors and flares.
  • A pocketknife
  • Bottled water
  • Granola or energy bars

Above all, the DMV  also advises drivers to keep items for changing a tire in your vehicle at all times.
