Driving during the winter months is no joke. If you’re not prepared properly for snow and ice, a bad situation spawned by an accident can quickly get worse. Thankfully, by keeping a few items in your trunk, you can have peace of mind knowing that you’re more ready to face the elements than the average driver. We’ve made a list of suggestions to get you started.

I always carry a bag with warm clothing including hat, gloves and thermal socks. I also carry Uno and dominos, pen and paper, and mace for protection.


Also a lighter, and a large empty coffee can with lid and roll of toilet paper for going potty, and a couple of tin cans. If you take medication regularly, always have a couple of days worth to tide you over.
