Important Documents to Have in You’re Vehicle
When it comes to emergency items, do you know what to keep in your glove compartment? Learn what you need to keep on hand in your glove compartment.
According to an article at nationwide.com, “Important Auto Documents on Hand”
“Glove compartments are great places to stash stuff on the go. Some overflow with leftover fast-food ketchup packets, hair bands and receipts from purchases long forgotten. Others hold simply a vehicle’s title and registration, two pieces of paper that are like gold to a car thief.
So what should you keep in your glove box? Check out our lists of must-haves and nice-to-haves – neither of which includes gloves.
The crucial stuff
- Critical medical information. Write down any medical conditions, medications and allergies for each family member in case you’re involved in an accident and can’t communicate these important facts yourself.
- Emergency contact numbers. Write them down, and while you’re at it, add them to your cell phone and put them in your wallet, too.
- Pen and paper. If you’re in an accident and need to exchange information, you’ll have something to write with – and on.
- Proof of insurance. It’s the law almost everywhere in the United States. But don’t store the car’s title (keep that at home) or registration (keep that in your wallet) in your glove compartment.” To read the entire article click here.
