In our final entry of Winterize Your Ride, we’ll go over packing an emergency kit for your vehicle. Regardless of the precautions you take in winter while driving, there is nothing stopping an accident from occuring if it wants to. Sometimes things just happen.
For this reason, it’s a good idea to always have an emergency kit with you in your vehicle at all times.
In your emergency kit, you should make sure that you have a flashlight. And make sure it works. There is nothing worse than having a flashlight sit in your car until the moment you need it only to discover that the batteries have long since run out.
Include jumper cables and know how to use them. I was once in the position to need to use jumper cables early on in my driving life, but I had no idea as to how to use them. Needless to say after a few ugly incidents and embarrassing conversations, I have since learned. Be equipped and be informed to utilize your emergency equipment.
A blanket, warm gloves, extra food and water, a window scraper, paper towels, a snow brush, snow shovel, and extra washer fluid and oil are also all good options for your emergency care kit.
