The one thing I wish I had in my car would be a face mask for CPR, or one of those rigid masks that goes over the face. I usually carry a small torch, and a few litres of water.
I should carry a high vis vest, and I would prefer to have some of those grey bandages - from Israel? I also usually have something like duck tape for emergency use.
What about a fluorescent suit - jacket and trousers with fluorescent tie? Maybe not so useful at the roadside but it would make me stand out at interviews!Get long sleeves - the waistcoat type aren't visible from the side. Or go for a jacket, then you've got better weather protection if required.
I'm not! I remember a campaign which had a photo of a driver collapsed on top of his tanker - opened a lid and whatever it was inside gassed him.
I was 11 when they were introduced.
My first aid kit was provided free of charge when I did a driver first assist course at work. Came with a hi-vis vest and head torch included. (Psst, it was 1978 )
Well, duck my old foots:Could well be, or it could be because duck tape came first and it was many decades later that the name and product duct tape was coined.
There is also the funny thing that generally foil tape is used on ducts
I’ve certainly never bodged a duct installation by putting black (or silver) nasty on it
HAZMAT Labels and Numbers were introduced in 1975, because of the mispronunciations of different chemicals, a number was assigned to each chemical and the class of chemical, IE Flammable, Corrosive, etc. In an emergency, it is easier to communicate the Hazmat number than try to pronounce Cyclohexylamine to an operator who is just waiting to go home who could easily pass on the wrong information to the response team.The producer and customer would know - but not necessarily the drivers. This was the 1960's
