If you’ve been driving for years, or you're a relatively new motorist like myself, there are always things you can do to help improve the chances of a safe trip.
Ninety-six percent of the time I have absolutely no idea where I’m going, so I rely heavily on my phone’s GPS. The first accessory I purchased for my car, Nadine, was a phone mount. There are a lot of options on the market, and I went through quite a few in a short amount of time. Some were so flimsy they fell apart, others held my phone so tight I had to wrestle it from the contraption's death grip every time I got out of my car!
The Auto Tech 360 car mount is on Amazon right now for less than eight bucks. It boasts 4.3 out of 5 stars on Amazon reviews. Most people love that it fits easily into the air vent.
This compact product fits in the glove compartment for easy access, which helps to reduce clutter. It comes with a flashlight, seatbelt cutter, tire pressure gauge monitor, safety hammer, and window breaker. Hopefully you'll never need most of these but it's good to have, just in case.
