First Aid Kit
In your car, you need to make sure that you have a first aid kit. You should carry an emergency first aid kit in the car so that you can treat any injuries you sustain whilst out on the road or the injuries of people you come across on your travels. In addition to taking the time to purchase a first aid kit, you also need to learn how to use it. Learning to use a first aid kit can be very tricky. Some people have absolutely no idea how to dress wounds. If you do not dress wounds properly, they could end up getting infected. If a wound gets infected, you could end up getting seriously ill and could have to go to the hospital to get antibiotic treatment. In addition to a first aid kit, bring some extra antiseptic cream, just so you can apply it to wounds.
Tire Repair Kit
In addition to a first aid kit, you also need to make sure that you have a tire repair kit in your car. If you do not have a tire repair kit and your tire blows out when you are driving, you could end up stuck and unable to repair it yourself. You also need to make sure that you have a spare tire or two stored in the trunk of your car. Sometimes, tire damage cannot be repaired and tires need to be totally replaced. There are courses you can take in tire repair. It is definitely worth taking one if you are new to mechanics and have no idea how to repair and replace tires yourself. You also need to make sure that you have basic tools stored in your vehicle as well as a tire repair kit.

If you are on a tight budget and cannot afford to buy one of these new, you will be pleased to know they can be purchased used. Used ones are not usually very expensive.
