Accidents do happen, and major failures can occur, making even a temporary repair at the roadside impossible. Tow tape is something you should always have on hand. With this, you have a better chance of flagging down a motorized Good Samaritan and begging for a tow back to civilization. The same is true for jumper cables and duct tape. It’s not easy to push a car. It is simple to start your engine with a battery jump lead.
Preferably, joining one of the organizations that will either repair your vehicle on the spot or take it to a garage or a place of your choice is a real peace of mind.
