In car personal safety kit

Just giving this subject a bump...

Here's a suggested list of things that should be left in the car, hopefully you won't need to use them.

First aid car kit, (checked ours, expires 2021)
Phone charger left in the car, not necessarily left intact when not in use.
High-Vis vests, (interestingly enough, people are selling the mercedes ones which come in a small rolled yellow bag for about £4.00) EvilBay
Multifunction mini multi tool. (Like a pen knife with extras)(Usually no longer than 4 inches). Check Evilbay and Amazon. Most come with a pouch.
Detailing torch, perhaps Ledeak T6 LED torch or similar. The Ledeak is very bright and would be useful for general use. This torch has a blink option (useful for waving down a passing car). Amazon
Medication in suitable pouch. Personal recommendation.
Change that Microfibre cloth or round Microfibre pads regularly on rotation.
Long journeys, I will take Autoglym 'Fast Glass' window cleaner out of it proprietary bottle and put some in a sample bottle.
£10 in coins placed and left in Ashtray
Very small notebook and 2B pencil (obviously not a pen) with elastic band around both.

Any other suggestions?

A small packet of wet wipes for those occasional sunny days with the roof down and some inconsiderate pigeon craps on your leather seats.

Some wet wipes for any unsuspecting passenger in a 55 after a spirited run.

I keep some cotton balls in the ashtray for passengers to wipe the blood out of their nose and ears after a rocket ride.

Other than the first aid kit, some tools, and a 2D Maglight (can be used for improvised defense or as a hammer), I always have heavy gloves and a large heavy towel in the car. Can use the towel as a blanket, wrap a spare tire inside, or transport injured animals.

I have about 5 Maglights (mostly gifts) from a little AAA though to my 5D Maglight - it replaced my baton when I was in the police force......I've had it since about 1984 (I've recently upgraded it to LED) - good kit. Also have one of the more modern LED-Lenser units. Problem with all is that I never use them.
