Before Hitting the Road, What Should I Have in My Car For Safe Winter Driving?

by Jeffrey J. Kroll

Make sure you are prepared for anything. In the event that you are in an accident or become stuck due to inclement weather, you need to have essentials handy that can keep you safe. Before you head out on the road this winter, ensure your car is adequately stocked with the following:

  • Snow scraper
  • Snow brush
  • Sand or kitty litter
  • Blankets
  • Flashlight
  • Jumper cables
  • Wiper fluid

Even if you have all the necessary equipment, it is still important that you are dressed for weather conditions just in case you become stuck, or your vehicle breaks down. Make sure you are wearing warm clothes, a winter coat and proper footwear.

These winter driving tips can help keep you safe. The crash accident attorneys at Kaveny + Kroll want you to be prepared for inclement weather. Have a safe and happy Holiday Season!
