When the winter rolls around driving can become very difficult. If you get stuck in a situation where you need to get out of a dangerous situation you need to be prepared. Having a shovel, spare battery, plastic bag, and extra food in your car are just a few ways to make sure you are prepared for anything.
- Keep your car prepared for survival because you may not know where you’ll end up in dangerous winter weather.
- Perform routine maintenance on your car regularly to ensure that it is in good shape before trekking out in the wintertime. Also make sure you pack key survival items in your car.
- If you get stuck somewhere in the winter, make sure you have space blankets packed to line the interior of your car to help insulate and block out cold air. Pack a couple extra to wrap yourself in as well.
