I used to have them. I recently went to by some more, but the department store I went to (WalMart) only sold a huge kit, which had substandard ones, plus everything else I did not need, like jumper cables and a small wrench.

For triangles I want one that are US DOT wind-rated for 40 or 50 mph. I used to have cheap plastic ones I bought for a few dollars, but those would have blown away awfully fast.
