Knock wood, I’ve been pretty lucky with my driving. I did skid on ice once as a teenager and bumped the car in front of me, and though I was more scared than anything I realized that I didn’t know what to do.
Do I exchange information? Do we call the cops? Luckily the guy didn’t see any damage to his car so we both went on our merry way, but if he did ask for my information I wouldn’t have known what to give him.
When I saw the Collision Kit Organizer at Uncommon Goods I just knew this was something I had to get, just in case.
The red zippered binder has a disposable camera for documenting any damage, an envelope to keep my insurance and registration information – also good if a cop pulls me over for speeding – a pen and checklist for all the information I need to get from the other driver and any witnesses.
At $15 the Kit is really a steal. Now lets hope I never need it.
