Winter Car Safety Kit

Winter months mean dealing with slick roads and unpredictable weather. This is why we want to make sure that drivers have the items needed if they get stranded in Moorestown, or their vehicle breaks down at night near Philadelphia. Below is a look at our recommendations for the winter car safety kit.

Items that you should have in your emergency tool kit for your car include:

  • Battery cables
  • Ice scraper
  • Portable shovel
  • Items to help when stranded: flashlight, warning signaling cones, backup batteries, safety vest, and roadside triangles
  • Basic first-aid kit
  • Cell phone charger
  • Camera
  • Flat tire kit
  • Common winter items: gloves, blanket, rain poncho, rags, boots, a hat. Pack anything to keep you warm if you’re stranded during a snowstorm. 

What are the Essential Items for Long Road Trips This Winter?

Are you driving cross country this winter? It’s essential to include these items so that you’re fully prepared for anything.

  • Tow strap: This handy tool is handy if your Lexus vehicle gets stuck in a ditch, and another vehicle is needed to help pull you out. Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual about the proper way of using a tow strap.
  • Fire extinguisher: It’s always great to have one in case of a small fire. Make sure the fire extinguisher you buy is intended for automotive use.
  • Long-lasting food and water: It’s always good to have some water and long-lasting food, especially if you’re going on long trips. Granola, protein bars, and water can last in your car for about six months before you have to replace them.
