Temperamental weather and icy roads can be a challenge, even for the best Greenwich drivers. There are some winter car safety kit basics that everyone should know about. And, in the event that your vehicle breaks down or is stranded during freezing weather, the best car emergency kit can be crucial to staying safe.

  • Portable shovel
  • Basic first-aid kit
  • Cell phone charger
  • Camera
  • Flat tire kit

What Do You Need for Your Winter Road Trip?

During the holiday season, Bridgeport roads fill with drivers and passengers visiting family and friends, During this time, you may come up against unforeseeable circumstances due to wintery weather. Be ready for anything with these important items in your emergency tool kit for a car:

  • Tow strap: Should you slide off an icy road into a ditch, a tow strap is an essential item that can help another vehicle pull your car to safety. Before you use a tow strap, you should read your owner’s manual for recommendations.
  • Fire extinguisher: Having a fire extinguisher in your vehicle is recommended for preventing small fires from becoming unmanageable.
  • Shelf-stable food and water: Dried foods like trail mix and granola bars, as well as bottled water, can be stored in your vehicle for several months. These will be welcomed if you are stranded for several hours.
