You only need to step outside for a moment to realize that winter has arrived, and you know what that means: it’s bringing “white death” with it! While people do tend to get a little hysterical when it comes to snow, it is important to take nasty winter weather seriously. One way you can be prepared is to get emergency winter supplies to keep in your car.
Ready.gov recommends that drivers have an emergency kit in their vehicle at all times, in case they get stranded. The contents of the kit include flashlights, jumper cables, a first aid kit, protein-rich food items, water, a working AM/FM radio to listen to traffic reports on, and warm clothes and blankets. To get yourself out of a mess, you may also want to carry a shovel, an ice scraper, and cat litter that you can put down for better traction.
Of course, the best step you can take is driving a safe, capable vehicle when you’re on treacherous roads. You can find one of those here at Shuman Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM.
