Be Prepared for Winter Driving

As winter begins to reassert itself, make sure you and your vehicle are prepared for what's to come. Visit http://www.edmunds.com/ownership/howto/articles/43799/article.html  for tips on how to get your car in shape.

As for you and your passengers, keep in mind that there are several things that should always be in your car when you venture out to the frozen tundra.

Here's a quick list of essentials:

  • Jumper cables
  • An inflated spare tire
  • A first aid kit
  • Other basic tools like a small snow shovel and an ice scraper
  • A piece of carpeting, some sand or Kitty Litter (to give you traction in the snow)
  • A sleeping bag and blankets
  • Extra clothes, boots and gloves
  • Food (energy bars) and bottles of water
  • Paper towels
  • A small battery operated radio
  • Flashlights
  • Cell phones
