Shelf Life: How many years are road flares valid for?

When properly stored, an unused road flare has an indefinite shelf life. However, in most user cases (99.99%), you should go by what it says on the flares, as the stabilizers flares contain will slowly and surely weaken overtime.

Most road flares on the market are valid for two to four years. Make sure to check the manufacture’s date and read the manufacture’s instruction before using a flare.
