Why would you need flares in your car? The answer comes, for many, when their vehicle breaks down on a dark highway at night. Prepared drivers could have these and other critical safety-related items in the car.

Other things become valuable in the dark, such as a flashlight. A phone is vital 24/7. Hopefully, there's an extra charger in the car. A few bottles of water are worth storing. The car needs fluids, too. Extra coolant and motor oil are among those fluids. Drivers and passengers are also at risk during an emergency. Keeping a first aid kit in the car makes sense.

Survival-related items help. Blankets, boots, rain gear, and a backpack come in handy. So does food. Buy some energy or granola bars and keep them safe.
