Comparing emergency kits for cars

We invented Blinking Brake Lights because we care about drivers’ safety. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, rear impact collisions result in more injuries than any other type of automobile accident every year. However, with Blinking Brake Lights, the reaction time of people driving behind you is reduced, which ultimately lessens your chances of being rear-ended. However, we’re aware that there are many dangers and scenarios that could occur while driving, so we took a look at three different emergency kits around the same price.


We strongly believe there is no such thing as being too prepared.  We’re not suggesting keeping a trunk full of goods in case of an apocalypse but maybe a bottle of water would be appropriate. As a result, we did some research and comparisons to find the best emergency kits out there.
