Stay safe: Carry a breakdown kit and make sure it includes a warning triangle, high visibility vest, torch, tow rope and a footpump. Spare bulbs are a good idea too and a legal requirement in some EU countries.
Warning triangle High-visibility vest (EN471 approved) High quality first-aid kit 3.5 metre tow rope with flat design for easy storage Footpump with gauge Emergency camera with flash and 12 exposures Notepad and pen Tyre safety kit Large canvas-type carry bag with handles and velcro Emergency glass hammer with seat-belt cutter
Despite the wealth of electric compressors and puncture sealants that are on the market, there is still plenty of scope for the good old-fashioned footpump. It is inexpensive, very compact and can be used for inflating items such as footballs as well as tyres.
