With cell phones and roadside assistance services, few people think they'll ever find themselves in an emergency situation on the road. Truth is, it probably won't happen to most people, but it's always better to be prepared for something that may never happen. That's why it's a good idea to have a roadside emergency kit in your car.

There are some essentials you should have in your roadside kit. These include food and water, first aid supplies, a flashlight, an extra cell phone charger, and jumper cables.

If you want to expand your emergency kit, there are a number of other items you can add, including tools, extra clothing, blankets, road flares and various fluids you might need, such as oil and antifreeze.
