No–one wants their vehicle to break down, but if you’re unlucky enough to be caught out with a car or van that won’t start, has suddenly stopped working, or has been involved in an incident, don’t worry.

Breakdowns always happen at the worst possible time, and although breakdown recovery and towing services are fast and efficient, there will always be a delay before they can get to you. If you’re going to have to be stranded by the roadside, a little prior preparation could make life more pleasant.
Before embarking on a journey, it’s a good idea to check the weather forecast to see if cold weather, heavy rain or snow, or indeed extreme heat has been forecast. Check the forecast for your local area, and in the case of long journeys, your destination too, as the weather there may be very different.
Extreme heat can be just as much a killer as cold and wet conditions, so always carry a supply of drinking water to avoid the risk of dehydration. Some long–life snacks such as crisps, chocolate bars or biscuits in a sealed wrapper can make a long wait more endurable.
Extreme cold dictates extra clothing or a blanket (fleece is best as it is a good insulator). Snow in the forecast means adding a snow shovel (there are lightweight folding ones available). De–icing spray and a scraper for your windows is a must–have, and always check your washer bottle has sufficient screen wash in it. Make the mixture stronger for cold weather.
Whatever the weather forecast, there are a few items that should always be present in your vehicle for the safety of yourself and your passengers, as well as in preparation for any breakdowns:
A first–aid kit and an empty fuel can are a wise precaution. The first aid kit could be a ready–made one, or you could make one up yourself. The fuel can must be empty – you don’t want to store fuel inside your car, but it will come in handy if you need an emergency fuel supply from a garage, who may not have a can available.
A warning triangle and a high–visibility jacket or vest could save your life if you’re stuck at the roadside in the dark. The triangle should be placed safely to alert other motorists, and the high–vis clothing is to make you visible if you need to get out of your vehicle.
A torch and a charger for your phone are a great idea, they can certainly make life easier. The torch can provide illumination if there are no streetlights, and the phone charger is a great comfort if you have to ring for help and you fear your phone battery may run down.
If you are taking any medication, always ensure you carry a supply with you. It’s a good idea to carry sufficient for at least 24 hours, in case you are unable to get home from a journey. Having essential medicines at hand will save you having to go to an emergency pharmacy to try to get more supplies – it is a time–consuming process and best avoided if possible.
