Winter Driving Emergency Kit

Winter driving can be dangerous—even more so if you’re on the road unprepared for a possible accident. While winter weather has the potential to leave you and your car stranded, a winter driving emergency kit could help you get back on the road or at least help keep you safe while waiting for help to come.

If you live somewhere where snow and ice are common, consider packing a safety kit for your vehicle. Winter driving emergency kits typically include:

  • Battery booster cables
  • Ice scraper
  • Portable shovel
  • Basic first-aid kit
  • Cell-phone charger
  • Extra clothing such as hats, gloves and a blanket
  • Water and long-lasting food
  • Tow strap

You never know when you may become stranded in a winter weather storm or when your car could break down on a cold winter night. Having a basic essentials kit could be the difference between a minor and major incident.
