News Desk, via The Art of Manliness

For your situational awareness, we found a list at The Art of Manliness of all the things that should be kept in your vehicle should unforeseen difficulties arise. The list is thorough, and the potential use of each item is explained. For example, you might not have considered keeping kitty litter in the car, but there’s a good reason to.

Vehicle preparedness - some things you should keep in your car.
Among AoMs winter hacks for vehicle preparedness – kitty litter, for tire traction.

Kitty litter is extremely useful as a traction device when you’re stuck in the snow or ice after a skid gone wrong. It’s not usually that you’re buried in snow that keeps your car from moving, but the slickness of the surface you’re trying to move on. Throw a handful of kitty litter in front of the tires, and they’ll have some traction to help get you on the road again.

Paper maps are also included because you never know when you might lose cell service, or Google Maps might lead you wrong.  In all, there are twenty purposeful items on the list. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

Be it a maintenance issue or a snowstorm, keeping the following items in your vehicle can save you time and discomfort, and perhaps even your very life, should an emergency arise.

Next time you’re stranded, you’ll be better prepared than this guy.
