Preparing for Winter Driving

Now that winter is upon us, Auto Team Delaware in Wilmington, DE wants to make sure that you are prepared for emergencies when you are out driving in the bad weather. You never know when you might slip off the road in icy conditions, and you want to be prepared during times of ice and snow.

During the winter, it is important that your vehicle is equipped with certain emergency items. You should always have a blanket and an extra coat in your car in order to stay warm if you can't run your vehicle's engine. Always have some high-quality snacks in the car to keep your energy up in case you are stranded for a period of time.

Sometimes, you might run off the road and get stuck. Always carry a snow shovel with you so that you can dig out if needed. Cat litter is also useful to help provide traction in the ice.
