5 Things You Should Have in Your Car to Survive the Winter

Many meteorologists believe that this may be the coldest winter many states have seen in almost 100 years. Whether you’re in the North, South, East or West you should always make sure you are equipped to survive hazardous weather conditions. Here are just a few items you should have in your car at all times to survive the winter months:

Blanket

Many individuals will probably frown upon you if your car looks equipped for a slumber party, but blankets are one of the number one items missing from most cars during the winter time. At any given moment your car could stop running, and if you are forced to sit in a cold car while you wait for assistance, a blanket could come in handy. Having a blanket will not only keep you warm inside your car, but also outside should you be forced to walk in the cold.

Car Insurance Card

A car accident can occur at any time, but the risk of car accidents increase exponentially during the winter months. Making sure you are always equipped with your insurance cards is one tip that all personal injury lawyers can agree upon. This not only protects you in case of an accident, but also everything inside your car.

Emergency Contact Information

Let’s face it, we live in a world where practically nobody remembers phone numbers anymore, and quite frankly you don’t have to. Modern technology has made it so easy for us to save phone numbers and addresses in our phones. Safety officials often preach the importance of always having an emergency contact card in your car in case an emergency happens, and for some reason your cell phone can’t be retrieved by emergency workers. This emergency contact card will allow officials to contact your emergency contact person within minutes without trying to pry information out of you during a potentially life-threatening encounter.

Flash Light 

This may sound bizarre, but having a flashlight (and the one on your phone doesn’t count) in your car is important not only during the winter time but also throughout the entire year. Having a flashlight will help you remain safe at night if you ever have to get outside of your car to inspect it or to await help from a roadside assistance service company.

While this may seem extreme, a flashlight can also be important when it comes to situations that may be deadly–such as being kidnapped and thrown into a trunk. Having a flashlight readily available will help you not only flash for help, but it will also help you if you need a weapon on hand to fight off predators.

Spare Tire

Ever gotten a flat tire and been forced to wait for someone to not only deliver a new tire, but also change the tire for you? Having a spare tire in your car will eliminate having to ever wait for a tire again. If you don’t know how to change a tire that’s an entirely different scenario; however, having a spare tire will make it easier on the person who has to come deliver roadside assistance to you. It will also save you extra money if you need to wait a few weeks before buying expensive tires.

The mass majority of individuals will go through the winter and never need to use any of the above items; however, like the old saying goes, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
