Winter Driving

Be prepared as you head out in the winter weather. Keep your gas tank full. Bring your cell phone. Keep an emergency travel kit in the trunk, including a snow shovel, blankets, flashlight, water, and a first aid kid. If your car gets stuck, stay with it. Start the car and use the heater for about 10 minutes every hour. Keep the exhaust pipe clear of snow so fumes do not back up into the car. Keep arms and legs moving to keep blood circulating and stay warm. Keep a window cracked open to let air in and remain calm until help arrives.
