Winter Driving Tips to Help You Out This Winter
The 2012 Winter season is upon us, and you know what that means: winter driving in sleet, snow and freezing rain!
What your Dad (or Grandfather) told you was right. Though we may or may not be seeing another blizzard quite like we did a few years ago, it’s a good idea to keep an emergency utility kit in your trunk as well as having some basic winter driving techniques in your back pocket. Just in case.
The items located in this emergency kit will be able to help you warn other drivers that you are stuck; or in the event of an accident, these items will also benefit you or help to assist a fellow driver.
These items should include:
- Fluorescent Road Hazard Signs
- Rock Salt
- Kitty Litter
- Collapsable/Compact shovel
- Compact Plug-in Air Compressor (operated from cigarette lighter)
- Tow Straps
- Emergency Heat Blanket
- Gloves, Hat

Stay Safe & Stay Warm!
