Are you planning on driving in the snow this winter? It’s best to stay home when the roads are slippery, but I know that’s not always possible. If you must drive in the snow, there are a few items you should always have with you. An ice scraper is mandatory to make sure you can get that thick plate of ice off your windshield upon your return.
A snow shovel and a bag of kitty litter will come in handy if you get stuck. You never know how long you might be stuck, so you might need a thick blanket, a flashlight, and some flares. You also need whatever medicine you take along with some food and water. It’s also good to plan your route, check all lights and keep a safe following distance. You should also drive more slowly, and try to delay your trip until the road conditions improve.
