Important Safety Gear

Hello everyone. I hope you all had a great weekend! Today I would like to welcome you back to my vehicles blog. Today I have another post with regard to important safety gear which you should carry round in your car. It may be a bit tedious, but I consider this topic to be very crucial.
Last year I already published a blog post about vehicle safety kits, but this one is a bit different. I will describe some basic safety gear in more detail, which will be handy in case of a breakdown or an accident.

Triangular Safety Reflector

This reflective triangle is a mandatory piece of equipment! It is indispensable in case of an emergency, accident or breakdown to clearly mark the scene of accident and thus to prevent worse.

Warning Triangle

Whenever a vehicle breaks down unexpectedly in an unforeseen way on an open road or space, the triangular safety reflector will secure the scene in conjunction to the hazard warning lights. Above all, in the dark or under poor conditions of visibility such as fog or rain, the scene of accident can only be seen at a short distance by the other traffic participants. Only with a properly placed reflective triangle, you warn others in time of what lies ahead of them. This way they can adopt to the current circumstances and adjust their behaviour to avoid further, serious accidents and thus to protect themselves and others.

There is no need to spent a fortune on a triangular safety reflector. You can even buy cheap, used triangles on the great for sales websites So you better spent a few bucks on one of those. One day it will come in handy and may save your life.

Warning Vest

In conjunction to the above mentioned reflective triangle, a proper warning vest is also an essential piece of equipment in case of a breakdown. Whereas the triangle is supposed to mark the scene of accident and your car, the vest is for your personal safety. It serves the purpose to be well visible to other traffic participants in time, while waiting for any help or assistance.

Reflective Warning Vest

In a case of an emergency, it is important that the warning vest is quickly accessible from the driver's seat. Therefore the vest should be kept in the glove compartment, under the seat or in the side compartment of the door – and not in the trunk. It is also not advisable to hang the vest over the seat because due to the sun the colour can fade with time.

As I mentioned before, you should definitely spent these bucks on your own safety. Just visit the great website for classified adds and order a cheap warning vest.

Other Security Equipment

I consider the two above mentioned car safety accessories undoubtedly as the most important ones. Of course there are also other pieces of safety and security equipment you should carry around. A First Aid Kit is also crucial. But I already described it in my previous article about vehicle safety kits.

Car Fir Extinguisher

One item hasn't been mentioned yet: a car fire extinguishers. In case of a very serious car accident, they can be a true life saver. But there are so many types, models and brands available to describe them here. But a good selection can be found on

So may these safety gear help you in any case of emergency. But hopefully it will never happen to you.
