Stay Safe While Driving in the Winter

This winter just keeps bringing the hits.  From frigid temperatures to powerful winter storms, we have really been feeling winter’s mighty force.  Though when this winter weather comes around it is best to stay inside in a nice heated home, that is not always possible.  The Weather Channel provides tips for packing your car to make sure that you are prepared in case you get stuck or slide off the road.

When driving in winter weather you should have the following in your vehicle:

  • Ice Scraper
  • Blanket
  • Flashlight
  • Wind up radio – A wind up radio will help keep you updated on what is happening with the weather without having to have your car running.  This is great if you want to save gas while stuck, or if your car is unable to start.
  • Toilet paper
  • Non-perishable Snacks
  • Emergency Car Hammer If your doors and windows are electric and your car will not start you will need a way to get out.  An emergency car hammer will cut your seat belt with one side and the other side will shatter a window.
  • Water (kept in cooler so it won’t freeze)

Despite the fact that it may seem a little bit extreme or over the top to keep your car stocked with all of these items during the winter, the fact is that you never know what could happen while you are on the road and it is better to be prepared.
