(TacticalNews.com) – The US economy took a significant hit during the COVID-19 pandemic, forcing many people to live in their cars. For some, living out of a car is a personal choice to save money or to simply enjoy a greater degree of freedom. For others, it’s the only option available after becoming unemployed. Whatever the case may be, there is no harm in preparing for life in a car.
Of course, you’ll need the survival basics: food and water, but the number one priority while living in a vehicle is safety. You need to be ready for the multitude of hazards that come with living in your vehicle.
Whether you have a truck, car, or SUV, you will need a vehicle repair kit, which typically includes:
- A tire repair kit.
- A replacement bulb for each type in your car.
- Basic tools.
Additionally, it’s always a good idea to keep a spare tire on hand, and most vehicles come with one.
You will also need to carefully plan the best method of storing these items in your vehicle. You need to utilize every bit of space wisely to ensure comfort and accessibility. Most people don’t choose to live in their cars. But sometimes they have no choice.
Unexpected job loss, rioting, looting, and natural disasters can leave you no other option but to take up residence in a vehicle. For that reason, being prepared to live in your car in the event of an emergency isn’t a bad idea.
With winter gripping much of the US, areas are heavily affected by snow and ice. Check out these important driving tips to stay safe.
