- It is a good idea to also keep road flares and a reflector triangle in the trunk of your car, in case of an emergency. If you have car trouble and have pulled off to the side of the road, keep your hazard lights on, as well as place the reflector triangle about five feet from the back of your vehicle. Then place one road flare about every 7 feet behind the reflector triangle until you have put at least four road flares out in the road. This will help speeding drivers notice your vehicle more quickly. Also, if the car trouble you are experiencing involves your battery or alternator, then the hazard lights probably will not turn on. Having the road flares and reflector triangle will greatly enhance your safety in this instance, especially if the incident happens either at night or in a really long tunnel where it is dark.
