Roadside Problems: What Do You Carry in the Car to Deal with Them?
What do you carry in the car to deal with roadside problems? For example
Cell phone and Triple A card.
Spare tire and jack.

Bear spray lol just for that extra bit of burn j/k. I used to carry a tool bag with every tool that fit the focus till the bottom ripped out. Now I just carry with me the prayer that it can limp home if something were to happen lol. I've gotten pretty good at nursing broken cars home [drummer] [giddy]

it used to be a rolling parts store but i drive a more reliable vehicle now. oh and i didn't mean the focus. lol.

It's also good to carry a small air compressor with you. It helps when you get a flat and pull into a gas station and realize they charge for air now or that the air pump they have is broken, or that the spare tire is flat from lack of checking to make sure it has air in it.

Dealing with roadside problems? Usually my glock 19.

Ohhh wait, for the car? [hihi]

Flashlight, jack, spare tire, breaker bar with socket, and my cell phone to call a tow if need be. I always bring extra stuff if I go on a road trip, but if I'm in town I feel comfortable with just a cell phone if I have a major problem.
