Where permitted by law how about a Glock or a Sig Sauer?  Nothing says being safe on the road like a 9MM semiautomatic pistol.

Up here in Alaska and would be good for any other part of the country.  We also carry a blanket, shovel, and a small amount of food and water year around.

The big mag-light is good for a couple purposes: LIGHT UP the engine area, if an attacked should wander by and attempt to get ""IN YOUR SH&T" one blow from MR. MAGLIGHT and the bad guy probably won' wake up for a while.
The smaller led light, I put it in my mouth so I have both hands for tools & work.

Most all vehicles have tire changing tools and a spare tire - but there are a lot out there who drive and have no clue how to use them.  it is always "someone elses job"  to do that.   BUT - there are are some situations and places where that is just not an option.

I find a place, a well hidden place, where I stash some cash, a copy of my driver's license, and the 800 numbers for my credit cards. That way if my wallet is lost or stolen and I can get to my vehicle, I can start to move on with my life. I won't be broke with no ID, which is a very helpless feeling.

RE: Tire changing tools! MAKE SURE YOU are out of the lane(s) of traffic!!  While the tire is flat on the ground, break loose all 5 lug nuts;  THEN jack the car up and remove the bolts.

What the heck--just let the AAA boys tow the car & get it fixed.

As a tire repair shop in Port Credit we understand the importance of carrying a tire pressure gauge in your car especially when travelling long distances. A lot of wear and tear on your car comes from low pressure tires so make regular checks on your tire pressure to ensure they are balanced.

The first item on this list should be a 9mm semiautomatic pistol! Without this you probably wouldn't get a chance to use the others if you have to drive through Detroit, or Chicago.
