Avoid Overexertion: Shoveling snow or pushing your car takes a lot of effort in storm conditions.
Traveling in winter can be a hazardous undertaking, therefore prepare a car emergency kit in case of need.
The above list may look bulky for storage but you will only need items for a few hours so there is no need to overload in quantity. Emergency blankets are light and warm and inexpensive and will help keep you warm and orientated. The first aid kit should include some wet wipes, plasters, burn cream, eyewash and disinfectant besides some pain killers like aspirin for minor accidents. Make sure you have some wrenches, screwdrivers and booster cable for the battery, should it die on you.


In cold freezing weather it is best not to venture outside the car as you can suffer heat loss in just a few minutes, but if you have to, make sure every inch of skin is covered. It is a good idea to get the weather forecast before you start any journey, so you won’t get caught unprepared.
In the event of an emergency, there is a good chance you may be in your car.  Be prepared and stock your car with critical supplies! Snow can plug your vehicle's exhaust system and cause deadly carbon monoxide gas to enter your car. It is best to put everything in a large canvas bag or a medium-sized plastic container and leave it in the well of the car or the trunk; however keep in mind that if the trunk becomes damaged you might not be able to open it.
Regardless of the weather, it is a good idea to become a member of some roadside assistance company which provides towing whenever your car breaks down.


If you travel a lot with kids, don’t forget to store some of their games to keep them calm and occupied.
To counter this situation which, in the worst case scenario, can even lead to loss of life, a car emergency kit can minimize the danger and help you through as you wait for help to arrive. The emergency flares will help them find you quickly and the flashlight will help you orient yourself if you have stopped in an unlighted area. If you're with someone else, make sure at least one person is awake and keeping watch for help at all times.
