Winter Car Essentials


It’s cold out there! Taking a road trip this winter? Road conditions are more hazardous this time of year. It’s important to be prepared if a snowstorm hits, ice forms on your windshield, or your car breaks down. Here are some suggested essentials to keep in your car during the winter season:

-Cell phone and portable cell phone charger (so you’ll have enough juice to call for help)
-Water and non-perishable snacks (these are always good to have on hand)
-Blankets & hand warmers (to stay warm if you break down)
-Flashlight and extra batteries (if you break down in the dark)
-Windshield scraper (clear windows are a must while driving)
-Shovel (in case you have to dig out your car)
-Jumper cables (a must to revive a drained battery)
-First aid kit (this is good to keep in the car year-round to treat someone who is hurt)
-Tool kit (a small one doesn’t take up much space and is useful in fixing minor problems)
-Salt or sand (to help tires get traction)
-A T3 Vehicle Security System (Did you know you can set emergency contacts to receive T3 notifications?)

Stay safe and warm out there!
