What Do You Need for Your Winter Road Trip?

The winter months bring a lot of car trips along with them. The holidays and vacations mean many drivers will have to hit the roads in less than ideal conditions. When planning your next winter road trip, bring an emergency tool kit for your car packed with helpful items that include:

  • Tow strap: No emergency tool kit for a car is complete without a tow strap. If your vehicle gets stuck in a ditch, packing a tow strap will allow another vehicle to pull you out. Consult your owner’s manual for specific instructions on how to tow your vehicle.
  • Fire extinguisher: An automotive fire extinguisher is a great addition to any winter car safety kit.
  • Long-lasting food and water: If you experience a breakdown, you will need to stay comfortable while you wait for help to arrive. Food and water is essential for a winter emergency car kit.
