Did you know that Americans spend about 1 hour behind the wheel and drive approximately 25 miles a day? That averages out to about six percent of our waking hours spent in a car.
That may not sound like a lot, but in the grand scheme of life, that’s quite a bit of time to spend behind the wheel.
Emergencies and disasters would extend the time and distance depending on the situation, it could even put you at a dead stop.
My point is, we spend a significant time in our vehicles yet we seem to ignore prepping our vehicles for emergencies or disasters.
People get stranded in their vehicle for numerous reasons. Getting stuck in traffic, they get into an accident, they have car problems, etc.
The situations in which you might need emergency gear in your vehicle are numerous.
While you may be thinking, “I’ll never get into a situation where I’ll get stranded.” Never say never! Better to be prepared for yourself, as well as others, instead of struggling should you ever get stuck in your vehicle.
