Try to think of the safety items that you require in your car. What springs to mind? Airbag? Seatbelt? Of course they do. These are some of the most important safety features in any car. But there are a few safety objects that are almost as important in terms of safety as airbags and seatbelts. Simple forgetfulness will bring you troubles in situations where you require certain items and you forget to pack them. So, let’s share the must-have item list that you should always carry in your car to make your journeys safer and more stress-free!

Car owner’s manual

This is always the first item that is shifted out to make room for those stacks of CD and other things! In fact, the car owner’s manual is also very important! It will definitely come in handy when you need to get rid of that pesky flashing light or figure out why your car’s sound system is malfunctioning!

First-aid kit

Although most of the cars nowadays come with a first-aid kit in the car, it is a good idea to get one in case you do not get one with yours. Even if you’ve got a ready one, ensure that you keep refilling it with the necessary supplies.


A flashlight has varied uses and is especially useful for night-time driving. Say, it comes in handy when you need to have a look under the hood of the car or check for tyre problems.


For most of the Hong Kong people, even when they’re not driving, a mobile charger will always be here to support!

Distilled water

Distilled water is one of the things that come at a very cheap price. They are always the gifts delivered by fuel stations to their customers. For a car or a car owner, distilled water is extremely important! It is volatile and has many uses, like cooling. Or you may require it to simply wash grease or dirt off your hands after taking a look under the hood.

Basic set of tools

A basic set of tools, such as screwdriver and plier, are usually very handy items for any incidents.
