I'll give you a heads up,
this really is a trick question. So the answer
is not auto insurance. All though, yes,
you must have that!
Think more along the lines of "What should every
responsible car driver have if they want to get
to where they're going ?"
Well whether your car is one of those cars that
comes with or without a spare tire ( yes folks a
lot of new cars, come without spare tires) at
the very least you should have a portable 12
volt air compressor for keeping your tires
properly inflated. Along with some kind of fix a
flat in a can. That easy to use portable air
compressor not only makes it easy to keep your
tires inflated for the best miles per gallon,
but when combined with that fix a flat in a can
can help get you either back on the road safely
or to a safe place where you can change a tire.
I don't know about you, but I don't relish the
thought of a loved one trying to change a tire
on a busy highway.
Also every car owner should have in every car a
good set of jumper cables. By a good set of
jumper cables I mean cables made out of copper
wire. Not cheap aluminum ones. Trust me on this.
Don't find out the hard way when you burn your
hands on the cheap aluminum ones! Because they
get unbelievably hot.
Or even better than a pair of jumper cables get
yourself what's known as a jump starter for a
jumper box. A jumper box is basically a spare
car battery in a self contained box with a pair
of cables built in so that you can jump-start
yourself, or a family member.
Believe me the jumper boxes may cost more than
jumper cables but they are well worth it. You
get back going on your way immediately. And you
don't have to sit there for hours hoping some
good natured person will let you take up their
time and jump start you from their car.
Also do you really want to think about your
loved one sitting on the side of the highway
waiving down any passing motorist hoping to get
a jump start?
Over the coming year Biznet Online Magazine will
be taking I'll look at some of these items and
what makes some more worth buying than others.
Or how based on your needs how one is better for
you than the other.
We will also explain how some old forgotten
technology should not be forgot. Like the good
old CB radio. There is a good reason why
truckers still depend on these great old radios.
And some of these old radios have some pretty
new technology built into them.
And some not so old but becoming forgotten about
technology .... The GPS unit.
We have all gotten way too used to using our
smartphone as a GPS unit. But how are you going
to find your way when you have no cellular
Well without a free standing GPS unit and the CB
radio you're going to be lost and alone, out of
contact with the rest of the world.
I'm sure we've got you thinking and seeing a
reason to come back for more in depth
