The worst thing that can happen in a car is getting in trouble somewhere and not being able to call for help. Cell phone service isn’t available everywhere, and even in a big city the lines can get jammed when everyone is trying to call in an emergency. With the right licenses, you can transmit messages on ham frequencies with a radio like the BaoFeng UV-5R, letting you get the help you need to yourself or for others. It's a 4-watt, two-way radio in the frequency range of 136-174 MHz and 400-480 MHz for a wide range of transmission, and features a dual-band and dual-frequency display with 128 channels at your disposal. It even comes with an FM radio and LED flashlight for the most dire emergencies. Grab at pair at the link below.

Great for beginners and people who just plain ol want to keep it simple and have a backup plan. If you don't already have some variant of this, you need to start researching. It's surprisingly easy.

These are solid little radios. Keep in mind that in order to broadcast in many countries, you will need an amateur radio (ham) license. Still, in a true emergency I suppose violating this rule is better than the alternative.

In an actual emergency, it's legal to use without a license.

Great radios and very versatile. Get the USB programming cord and clone a pair or more to keep everyone on the same channels.
