Loans By Kathy: Safety tips for traveling in winter weather

Safety tips for traveling in winter weather

Safety tips for traveling in winter weather should be followed by ANYONE taking to the road  during this holiday season, well these apply for all winter travel.  These are the things that I have done every year after learning from personal experience.  I was caught in a blizzard one year driving back to college for the spring semester.  We didn't have any of these items with us and I sure wish we had.

  1. Be sure to check your tires for correct pressure
  2. Never let your gas tank get below half full
  3. A bag of kitty litter will help if you get stuck
  4. A small broom or shovel
  5. Be sure your flashlight has fresh batteries
  6. Update your first aid kit
  7. Throw a blanket in the trunk and maybe a pillow
  8. Bottled water and some type of protein or granola bars

Travel safely!

Always a good idea when traveling in the winter. I prefer the warm sunny weather myself.. but over the river and threw the woods we are headed to Connecticut to be with family. Have a happy and a healthy one!
