Winterize Your Car

— Written By

If you use a car to get around and live in an area that experiences winter weather, it’s important to prepare your car for winter. Here’s what you should know if you drive during winter weather:

  • Stay off the road during and after a winter storm.
  • Install good winter tires. Make sure each tire has enough tread.
  • Keep your gas tank full. A full tank keeps the fuel line from freezing, and it’s also a good idea in case you lose power.
  • Build an emergency kit with winter essentials. Include weather clothes, a blanket, and an ice scraper.
