Roadway Safety in Cold Weather: Make a Winter Survival Kit for Your Car

Just because the weather turns cold doesn't mean you stop driving. Driving can be more hazardous in the wintertime. Consequently, you need to make a winter survival kit for your car to keep you and your family safe when on the road.

Creating a winter survival kit should be part of a comprehensive car winterization effort, according to the team at Dorsch Kia, located in Green Bay. Your kit should include fresh drinking water, nonperishable food items, extra winter clothing, and blankets. A comprehensive kit also features a powerful flashlight and extra batteries as well as an additional cellphone charger.

Fully outfitting your car's winter survival kit necessitates adding a snow shovel, window ice scraper, and cat litter to your car. You also want to include a portable, electric tire pump, jumper cables, and a tow rope or tow strap.
