Is your car #OKready for Winter?

So you’ve prepared your home for winter weather but what about your car? You can avoid many dangerous winter travel problems by planning ahead. Before you hit the road, have a mechanic check the following items on your vehicle:
  • Antifreeze levels – ensure they are sufficient to avoid freezing;
  • Battery and ignition system – terminal should be clean;
  • Brakes – check for wear and fluid level; and
  • Tires – make sure they have adequate tread.
Changes in weather call for changes in your emergency supply kit. For winter weather, update the emergency kits in your vehicle with:
  • Matches;
  • Booster cables;
  • Tow chain or rope; and
  • A fluorescent distress flag.
