No one expects a car accident or breakdown to happen, but if either does, you’ll want to be prepared for the worst-case scenario. It may be no big deal to break down during the middle of a breezy spring day, but this annoyance quickly becomes a life-threatening situation if there’s rush hour traffic or a major rainstorm coming your way. Winter weather, extreme heat, flooding, impaired visibility, injuries and long waits can all throw a kink into what you thought was a well-thought out emergency plan.
