Breakdowns happen: These must-have roadside safety triangles are on sale for $28 — that's 30% off

Plain and simple: If you drive a car, you need these.

Flat tires happen at the worst times. Sure, most of us know how to swap out a tire — but any added bit of safety will go a long way. When you're stuck on the side of the road, make sure you're visible with this three-pack of Cartman Warning Triangles. These reflective accessories help other vehicles to see you, especially at night, and offer a bit of protection against unobservant drivers.

These reflective warning tools come on a rotating base and are heavy enough to stay where you place them, even in strong winds.

Why is this a good deal?

These reflectors are already marked down, but if you're an Amazon Prime member you can receive an even greater discount. They're available for just $28 for three. While it's not the lowest price we've seen, it's pretty close to it — and since you're getting three in a single pack, you're only paying a little over $9 per reflector.

Why do I need these?

These reflectors are an important part of any road safety kit. Whether your car has broken down, you need to pull off to check something on the side of the road or you have to change a tire, they help to make you more visible — and therefore safer. These are approved by the Department of Transportation and the US Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

At 17 inches by 17 inches, they're quite large. During the day the vibrant color is eye-catching for motorists, while at night they are reflective, to ensure you're visible — even in stormy conditions. They work regardless of the time of day or weather, and they can even be used to flag down other drivers if you need assistance. Each triangle is mounted on a sturdy, 3 lb stand and can rotate to face traffic, to optimize visibility.

Make yourself very visible while on the road. The only thing better would be a giant neon sign. (Amazon)

What reviewers say

"I've used this on the side of a busy highway while changing the tire on my RV. It's a really important safety device we should all consider. They're easy to set up, and store nicely in their case," said one fan.

Another user shared, "I got tired of constantly dragging out those heavy rubber cones so I switched to these. They're excellent reflectors when lights hit them, even during the brightest parts of the day, definitely more noticeable and lighter than traffic cones."

"I've gotten several comments on these. I was in a car accident and set them out and even the cops said more people need to have these, even the cheap ones can save your life," wrote another reviewer.
