If you are a woman with a car, you most likely don’t have to worry too much about it since you more than likely have a parent, spouse or friend who takes care of your car for you. However, there are some things that you should have in your car at all times in order to be safe on the road.
Things Every Woman Should Have in Her Car
Umbrella- An umbrella is something that every woman needs not only in their car, but also their home and at work as well. Umbrellas are items that are inexpensive and compact. You never know when you will encounter a torrential downpour in the car and you will be grateful to have an umbrella handy.
Cell phone charger- A cell phone charger cord fits right into the cigarette lighter in your car. These days, your cell phone is probably your lifeline; so you need to make sure that you have a way to charge it while you are on the go.
Flashlight and batteries- If your car breaks down or you get a flat tire while you are traveling at night, you will need to have a flashlight on hand. Be sure that the flashlight you have is good-sized and that the batteries work. It is also a good idea to have extra batteries handy as well.
Blanket- If you happen to break down or get a flat tire in the middle of winter, you will be glad that you have a blanket in your car. Besides keeping you warm, a blanket may also be used to put on the ground if you need to change the flat tire.
Cold weather gear-You don’t want to be stuck out on the side of the road in the middle winter without having cold weather gear in your car. You should always keep a hat, scarf and gloves in your car just in case you need to bundle up.
