If a heavy snowstorm hits while you’re on the road, a well-stocked winter emergency car kit could save your life. Treacherous driving conditions can lead to accidents, breakdowns or getting stranded on the side of the road for long periods while waiting for help to arrive. Have your car serviced to be sure it’s ready for the winter weather in your area, keep a fully-charged cell phone on hand at all times, and pack these items into a clear plastic bin in your trunk.
