As a car owner, safety is likely always at the forefront of your mind each time you get behind the wheel. While modern cars have worked hard to provide a slew of safety features that weren’t always available before, retrofitting new technology onto your existing vehicle can often be much less expensive than dropping monthly payments on a new car. If we’ve piqued your interest, here are 5 car safety updates you can install on your car for under $50 per part.
Car Emergency Kits
From breakdowns to dead batteries, having the resources needed to get you back on the road or safely wait for help is crucial. While the price of car emergency kits can vary drastically, you will likely be hard pressed to find one that tops out over the $50 price point. Most car emergency kits will include a flashlight, jumper cables, a tire repair kit and more. Find the one that most suits your needs and don’t leave home without it!
Upgrading your vehicles bulbs will not only ensure you can see on dark roads, but it will also alert oncoming traffic that you are there. While there a wide variety of bulbs available on the market, it is important to find long-lasting and bright lights for the most impact. However, make sure that the bulbs you use aren’t blinding other drivers that may be on the road. If you need to upgrade your tail light bulbs, check out the AutoTrix 3157 Long Life Tail Bulbs to see if they fit your vehicle.
While backup cameras were once thought of only as an expensive add on or feature in new cars, the technology has become surprisingly affordable in recent years.
