Winter is here and for many that means snow and ice can add to the hazards on the road.
Having a well-stocked emergency kit in your car can help to save your life and make you more comfortable
during breakdowns, accidents and long waits.
Your kit should include:
- Battery jumper cables
- First aid kit
- Basic tools (pliers, wrench, screwdriver and knife)
- Extra clothing (hats, socks, boots, mittens)
- Bag of sand
- Cellular phone or CB Radio
You don’t have to live in a wintery climate to encounter icy roads and hazardous roadways. In temperatures at or just above 32-degrees, a thin layer of water can turn to or cover ice, causing extremely dangerous, slippery driving conditions.
