When you buy a used car, there are plenty of ways you can improve the look of it. You can find plenty of ways to do this by browsing your local auto parts shop or by looking online. While doing this though, it’s also important to think about safety. Safety accessories can save your life, especially if you ever find yourself in a situation where you are stranded.

Everyone should keep the following safety accessories in their vehicle at all times:

  • Emergency Hammer: – These are not your typical hammer. These are used to shatter auto-glass. In the event that you are ever trapped in your vehicle, this can be a lifesaving tool. There are some that include a sharp blade that you can use to cut through a seat belt.
  • Emergency Breakdown Kit – These types of kits include several useful items including jumper cables, tire inflators, a tow rope, torch, gloves, fuses, long nose pliers, an adjustable wrench and an extendable wheel brace.
  • Fire Extinguisher – These devices come with their own instructions. Make sure you are familiar with them and know how to use your particular one if you should ever find yourself in an emergency situation where you might need it.
