Most drivers know that checking tire pressure and oil regularly is part of safe vehicle operation. However, do you know that keeping your car stocked with certain precautionary items is also part of staying safe? Things like a flashlight, jumper cables, and a cell phone charger can make the difference between a minor inconvenience and a roadside disaster. One of the most important tools any driver can have is an all-in-one device for cutting seatbelts and breaking windows, called a “Life Hammer.” If you get trapped in your car after an accident or if your car enters the water, this tool can be nothing short of lifesaving. This infographic from Michael J’s Body Shop in San Jose explains everything you should have in your car. Please help your family and friends stay safe on the road by sharing this information from our auto body shop with them.
