Once every year it comes. Winter. It is not a surprise. But, how many of you have all the items you may need if stuck in your car during cold and dangerous road conditions?
It goes without saying, you should have your car gasoline tank full and know how to change a tire, jump start your car, change belts/hoses and fill the car's fluids.
In an emergency, the items below could save a life. Hopefully, one of the items has you saying, "I did not think of that."
You will need a strong storage bin to get started.
Note: Unless you have access to your trunk from inside your vehicle, store items inside of car in case trunk gets jammed or frozen. Additionally, it is safer to stay inside of your vehicle.
