College kids may find themselves stuck with a dead battery. Chances are they will be far from home, so they won’t be able to call Dad (or Mom) for quick help.
The best option is to call AAA or similar service. However, if those options are not available, everyone should know how to correctly (and safely) jump start their car. Tom and Ray from CarTalk have a great step by step guide on how to jump start your car which can be printed out and kept in the car for future reference.
