Michelin: Just In Case Kit, Be Prepare ~ #Review & #Giveaway

Warmer weather has finally arrived and there is only a few weeks left of school.   You know what that means?  Road Trip!  Every summer we plan to visit the US for a few days to have some quality family vacation.  When on the road for 2, 8, or even 12 hours the unspeakable thing could happen - the car does not start or there was a accident.

It is nice to be prepared and have your Just In Case Kit already packed into the car.

This kit has the following items:
Jumper cable
flash light
small pylon
gloves
2D batteries
poncho
2 tea light candles, box of wooden matches
6 wet naps
safety vest
reflective emergency blanket
Plastic Call Police Sign
1 large size napkin
3 lock straps
10 regular size Bandages
3 Benzalkonium chloride antiseptic towelette
Gauze Sponges
Alcohol Prep Pad
These items are mostly in ziploc bags to protect them from getting wet.

Other things to consider to include:
pen and paper (sticky notes)
scissors
tapes
umbrella
snow scraper
bottled water
snacks (with long expiry dates)



It is never pleasant to be stranded with nothing to help in case of emergency.  Even if you have road side assistance plan there is a possibility that "help" might not arrive soon enough.  Sometimes, quick action with the right supplies could help to get by for the moment of need.  There were many times we had needed a jumper cable.  I could never understood why my husband never purchased one in the first place.  Sometimes people never think it will happen again.  Now we have one all packed up and in the car.  I just hope we never have to use it.

This Just In Case Kit (C$30) may not have everything you need but it has the essentials that you will need in case of an emergency.  It is up to you to add to the kit what you think could happen and what you will need to use until help arrives.

A couple of Summer Safety Tips from Michelin:
1. Tread lightly
-don't forget to do the "penny test" on your tires
2. Have a professional give your car a summer check-up
-help avoid those unpleasant surprise like your AC not working...yep, been there, done that...
3. Spare tires go a long way
-might never know
4. Don't sleep and steer
-be kind and not snooze on the road, go nap somewhere else
5. Don't forget to pack your safety supplies
-plan ahead goes a long way
6. Have fun

One important rule is to replace used "one time use" products immediately after using them.  Never know when you will use them again.  You don't want to be caught off-guard.

Just remember to drive safe, keep your eyes on the road and if you are travelling with me, I call "Shot Gun."  Happy road trip.

Anyone interested in winning one of their own Just In Case Kit?  Don't know why I bother to ask, sure you do!  Michelin would like to offer one of my readers their own Just In Case Kit.

Giveaway!!

This giveaway will run from June 20th to July 14th, 2013 (midnight EST).  Winner, You have 72 hours to reply.  You must be 18+ Canadians Only.  Good Luck!

We definitely need this! Trust me! lol

  140. In Germany it's the law that you have to have a first aid kit in the car at all times. They also have expiry dates on them and you will be fined if it has expired.
