1. Car First Aid Kit

It is advisable to have a proper First Aid Kit in your car every time you travel to be ready for emergencies. Also, always do well to update your First Aid kit from time to time.

2. Jumper Cables

Most of us forget to keep track of the last time we replaced our car's battery. There is a chance that your car's battery will fail, and you will be unaware of it. If you become stuck, jumper cables can be handy. You can get going with these cables instead of being stuck due to the starting problem. If you have jumper cables, you can quickly start your car with the assistance of another person.

3. Tow Strap

Looking at the road situation in our Country, it is likely that someday your car can get stuck on the road or fail to start completely. If you find yourself in a situation like this, that's where you get to see the importance of a tow strap. This is an essential tool that should not be left out of your car.

4. Fire Extinguisher

You don't want to drive a car around without a fire extinguisher like the First Aid kit. Most Cameroonian car owners do not see the necessity to carry a fire extinguisher in their vehicles; they only do so, to avoid a penalty from the forces of law and order. 

However, just so you know, any car powered by any fuel can catch fire due to a short circuit. In case of an emergency, keep a fire extinguisher nearby. Ensure to replace it whenever it reaches the end of its life (expiry date).

5. A Duct Tape

This looks like a straightforward tool, but duct tape can be very handy. Imagine you have some loose wires or cracks on your bumper; a duct tape can hold it together while you get to the nearest garage or mechanic.

6. A Flash Light

It's a crazy thought to believe that you can have a mechanical breakdown with your car only during the day. If your car breaks down late at night and you need to look under the hood, you'll need a flashlight to help you perform a thorough inspection. 

However, most of you may believe that your phone's flashlight can help you get out of such situations, but this is not the case. To perform car repairs in some complex areas under the hood, you'll need a real flashlight.

7. A Tire Inflator and Tire Gauge

Many new cars come equipped with spare tires, but is yours still inflated? Is it inflated to the recommended pressure? What happens if your spare tire fails? All of these issues can be reduced or eliminated if you carry a tire inflator and a tire gauge with you at all times. Before you hit the road, use the tire gauge to check the pressure in your tires.

8. Warning Triangle

A warning triangle is a small red triangle with a highly reflective surface typically made of plastic and metal. The use of warning triangles alerts other drivers and road users that they are approaching an unexpected stationary vehicle.

When people have a car break down, they frequently use their Hazard Warning Lights to warn others of the danger. However, because these are not always visible around bends or over bumps, an emergency warning triangle will help provide advance warning.

9. Reflective Jacket

Reflective jackets should be worn by all drivers or road users at night to increase visibility. This can easily be noticed by incoming vehicles cautioning them to slow down. Also, in case of a car breakdown, it is advisable to put on a safety jacket before attending to the car's problem.

10. Car Coolants

This is a fluid that protects engines from overheating. Coolant also lubricates the moving parts it comes into contact with, which protects against damage to the water pump, head gasket, cylinder and piston timing.

11. A ToolBox

This box contains vital tools like screw drivers, pliers, a car jack, a wedge, and socket set.

12. A Spare Inflated Tire

The last but not the least is a spare inflated tire. Driving a car without a spare does not look sensible. Having a spare inflated tire in your vehicle is a must have. Therefore it is advisable to check your spare tire always before you hit the road.
