Vehicle preparedness is something we all have to consider. It doesn’t matter if you’re a prepper or an average Joe, accidents happen all the time.

Seeing that we spend a lot of our time driving around, we can be trapped in our vehicles at any time due to various unpredictable on-the-road events.

Sinkholes, rollovers, natural disasters and even unknown terrain could turn deadly if you are not prepared.
We are used to having one or two cars per family, and we can’t see us living without these useful vehicles.
