Fire extinguishers are something every car should have even when the law doesn’t say that. They’re small and they’re not too expensive, especially when you compare it to the cost of not having one in case of emergency.
Most car fires start small, and are generally caused by electrical or mechanical problems. If you pull over quickly and use your fire extinguisher right away, you can avoid a much more serious and potentially deadly accident. It’s also a handy tool to help those in need on the side of the road. Plus, knowing that you have one will give you peace of mind.
The simplest thing to do is to buy a fire extinguisher and throw it in your trunk. However, with it back there, it will take you at least 5-10 seconds longer to grab it than you’d need if it was somewhere by your side. Those few seconds can make a big difference. Another option is to throw it under your seat, but you can expect it to roll over your car with each turn and bump. Or you can simply watch this video and install it under your passenger seat. -it’s quick and simple and could save someone’s life.
