In wintertime and/or over the holidays you may find yourself behind the wheel,
covering more ground than usual. Bitter cold, snow, slippery roads, and
unpredictable weather conditions are just a few possibilities of winter that
can make driving conditions risky.
If you really must drive when weather conditions are nasty, prepare yourself
for any emergency that you may run into. Keep a winter driving emergency kit in
your vehicle that contains the following:
Keep your vehicle in good running order and consider installing snow tires.
Keep your antifreeze and fuel topped up. Make sure your windshield wipers work
and are in good condition. Keep snow out of your exhaust pipe, and you'll keep
harmful carbon monoxide out of your car.
