Driving and taking it for granted!
I would have taken driving to and fro the office for granted if it was not for such a terrible experience that I had a few years ago.
My parents had always told me to commute in a car because it is relatively safe and also because cars nowadays are far more reliable than in their days. Yet, breakdowns even if infrequent do happen and you never know where the car can simply give away.
I was getting back home after doing overtime when suddenly the car braked noisily. I don’t know what I was doing but when I hit the brakes, I jolted in my seat. After that, it took me harrowing hours out in the cold night to get back home.
To add to the trauma, this patch used to be extremely remote, cut away from the main hustle bustle. I generally took this route because it helped me reach fasten. In the emotional humdrum that I was in I almost cursed myself for taking this bypass.
The point I am trying to make here is how important it is to carry your emergency tool kit with you in the car.

Your contents in the toolkit must contain:
- A powerful flashlight with spare batteries;
- Reflectors; they have to be sturdy enough to be able to withstand the onslaught of vehicles;
- A comprehensive first aid kit;
- A mini fire extinguisher;
- A spare tire that is checked regularly for air and pressure;
- A jack and other tools that you will need for changing the tires;
- Tow straps;
- A pair of scissors or blade or window pane crasher;
- Back up fluids like oil change;
- Can for collecting water.
There are many more things that you can add on. But these are absolutely essential in my opinion.
