Automotive Safety Products You Should Consider When Traveling. 

Assuming you can get to your destination within a matter of eight hours or less, driving your car is less of a hassle, than planning a trip by plane. Generally driving to your destination and having the convenience of having your car outweighs the time and expense you save by flying and having to rent a car. The important thing to remember are roadside emergencies which in most cases can be prevented by planning ahead and having your vehicle checked before traveling. Things to consider, have a qualified mechanic check your car over before traveling any major distance. At the very least, you should have your oil changed, make sure your fluid levels are where they need to be. Also have all four tires checked for wear and proper air pressure. Don’t forget to have your spare tire looked at as well. The last thing you need is a flat tire and finding that your spare tire isn’t properly inflated. Also, make sure you get that tune up which you have been putting off. Some of the other items to take along on your trip would be a small tool box with tools needed to replace a hoses or fan belt if necessary. Flash light with a flashing red light is another is a great tool to have especially if you are traveling at night and want to attract attention. Battery jumper cables, a must have if you stop at a rest area and your car won’t start because you left your lights on while away from you care or just because someone at the rest area flags you don’t and needs a jump. A handy tool to have is an 8-N-1 car charger and power bank auto safety tool. This little tool measures 5 13/16” x 1 1/8” and is small enough to keep in your pocket while traveling. The USB car charger plugs into the 12 volt DC receptacle for charging cell phones and tablets. Easily locate the USB port in the dark with the Glow-in-the-Dark Band. The super sharp seat belt cutter cuts through a seat belt with just one swipe. There is also a bright 120 Lumen Flashlight with an adjustable neck. It also has a red flashing light for signaling. You can use the magnet on the bottom of the auto tool to mount the unit to a convenient easy to reach spot when needed. This tool also has a built in glass break hammer which is hidden in the positive pool of the car charger. Just aim for the corners of the windows where the weakest points of the window are and swing the glass breaker into the window to escape from your car. With the current technology, a conventional bulky battery jumper has been reduced to something small enough to easily fit into your glove compartment and yet powerful enough to jump start your car more than ten times if needed. Some of these units have built in LED lights with 3 illumination modes. When used in the dark, they will last up to 30 hours. Other units come with a strobe light for attracting attention in the dark in case of an emergency. These units can be operated to last up to 90 hours. They also come with the necessary cables for recharging almost any IPhone, IPad, HTC Samsung Mobile, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Nokia, Blackberry, PSD, PDA, GPS, Digital Camera, tablet PCs and many other digital devices. Let’s not forget a possible accident on the road with another driver where there are no witnesses and now it’s your word against his. Consider a dash camera with a built in DVR that will record up to six hours. It will digitally record any accident you may be involved in and now you have your witness. A Nap Alarm is another nifty little device, for anyone who has ever driven a long distance and caught themselves dosing off behind the wheel. I am sure that some of us have actually fallen asleep only to be awakened by the blaring horn of an oncoming vehicle. This is a life saving device for any professional truck driver. This small unit is worn behind the ear and is potentially a lifesaving anti-drowsiness alarm. It has a sensor built in it that detects motion, so when your head nods forward, it sounds a loud alarm to instantly wake you and to alert any passengers that may be traveling with you. This device is not just for drivers, it is also perfect for people who need to be fully alert while on duty, for example security guards, machine operators, and even students while studying or where concentration is required. Makes a great gift.
