Tips for making an emergency kit for winter driving
WASHINGTON CO. (CBS 58) -- As the colder months continue in Wisconsin, now is the time to prepare an emergency kit for winter driving.
Some essentials the Wisconsin Department of Transportation encourage every driver to have in case you become stranded include:
- Flashlight with extra batteries
- First-aid kit
- Booster cables and windshield brush/scraper
- Sand or cat litter for traction
- Cell phone adapter/charger
I don’t mess around when it comes to winter driving. One thing I always have in my emergency driving kit is this portable battery. It can jump my car, charge my phone, shine a light, and it’s an emergency air compressor for my tires. Shout out to Papa Le for getting it for me! pic.twitter.com/jKq38EkVnA— Pauleen Le (@PauleenLe) November 6, 2019
It sounds funny but I always carry cat litter with me in the winter time. I don’t have cats but it’s in my emergency kit I keep in my car. If I ever slide off into a ditch the litter will help give my tires some traction on the slippery snow/ice. #ThinkAboutIt #MakesSense #Meow pic.twitter.com/kQ57X0AQkC— Pauleen Le (@PauleenLe) November 6, 2019
