What Goes in a Winter Car Safety Kit?

Slick roads, icy conditions, and frozen streets can lead to difficulty navigating basic needs. Whatever happens, you will want to have some of the most important items on hand. If you are worried, our service center has a wide range of recommendations for your winter car safety kit: 

  • Basic First-Aid Kit.
  • Cell Phone Charger.
  • Camera.
  • Flat Tire Kit.
  • Jumper Cables.
  • Ice Scraper.
  • Portable Shovel.
  • If You’re Stranded: Flashlight, Warning Signaling Cones, Backup Batteries, Safety Vest, and Roadside Triangles, (If you don’t want flares, try an LED Car Safety Light Kit).

Essential For Those Long Road Trips This Winter

If you’re driving to visit friends and family across the country, there are some more items you should include: 

  • Tow Strap: This is helpful if your vehicle gets stuck in a ditch and you need assistance via a different vehicle. Check your owner’s manual to see the proper way to use the tow strap. 
  • Fire Extinguisher:Even if it’s unlikely, a fire extinguisher can come in handy, and it is a great idea if you come into a situation while you deal with small fires. Some extinguishers are not geared for automotive use, so consult the extinguisher manual before use.
  • Long-Lasting Food and Water: If you’re going to be driving across state lines for hours, it would be a good idea to invest in snacks, drinks, protein bars, chips, cookies, and more. Make sure they can last a few months before needing replacement.

If your car breaks down in poor weather, stay inside and remain with it until it’s safe to go out on your own. The police and emergency responders will have a better time helping you if you remain in your car, and going out alone can pose many risks.
