It's for when a person needs to flee and ends up stranded alongside the road. Hurricanes need to be able to see stranded motorists so that they can slow down and give the motorists a wide margin as it passes by.

Now do you see how practical these kit designers really are?

A Costco sized bottle of ibuprofen. They never bothered to subdivide and/or put it in a smaller container.

A pill container is great. 1-4 doses of OTC meds. ( I once traveled with a guy who carried a full sized bottle of shampoo...)

Reviewing others various "kits" 6+ sharps.
Probably 4 pounds of knives. And often neither water nor a jacket.

I met a hiker that was planning to carry 60 days worth of food. In his pack.
