Top 10 must-haves in vehicles

1-      Fire extinguisher

A 1 kg fire extinguisher is enough for a small car while a 2 kg is recommended for bigger vehicles. Buy Sirim-approved extinguisher. Cars can catch fire due to overheating, an accident or friction.

2-      First aid kit

It pays to spend on a good first aid kit that not only comes with tools to treats minor cuts but with other useful contents including burn gels.

3-      Masking tape

Masking tape is extremely useful as it has many uses and can hold things in place.

4-      Emergency hammer

In the event you are trapped in a car after an accident, it can help you escape. It comes with a siren and torchlight, and you can also use it to cut your seat belt and break your window if you are trapped in the car.

5-      Towel

You can also use your towel to wrap around your face in the event your windscreen has shattered to protect yourself from shards of glass.

6-      Water

Advisable to keep 3 liters of water in car. This can be used for your radiator or for your own consumption if you find yourself stranded in an unfamiliar place.

7-      Jumper cables

      Any car owner dreads getting caught with a flat battery. It can delay appointments or cause panic if you are in an unfamiliar place. Keeping jumper cables in your car will help you jump start it from another individuals vehicles.

8-      Traffic cones and a blinker 

If your car breaks down in the road, traffic cones offer visual warning to other motorists to stay clear of your car. Buy collapsible traffic cones that can fit in the boot without taking up much space.

9-      Plastic poncho

      A poncho will come in handy as it is multi-functional. You can easily purchase them from pharmacies and even convenient stores.

10-   Portable charger

No one wants to be caught in a situation where they are stranded in an isolated area with no battery in their phone to call for help. Keep a mobile charger in your car to ensure that you can call for help if your phone battery has run out.
