Important things to have for winter driving season

With the arrival of December, GTA residents are shifting from fall into winter mode, particularly when it comes to staying safe on the roadways. To help motorists get to their destinations in safety all season long, the Canadian Automobile Association of South Central Ontario is providing drivers with tips of what they should get out of their storage units and put in their cars.

Because vehicle breakdowns can occur at any time, CAA SCO says you can never be too prepared. Thus, an ice scraper, snow brush, booster cables, blankets, extra clothing, footwear, a flashlight and first-aid kit are just some of the things that should be packed into cars, even on short-distance trips.

If these items were taken out of individuals' storage units, drivers should be sure and restock them so that they can obtain them quickly in the event of an emergency.

While safety preparations will make enduring a breakdown or accident more bearable, the source says drivers can decrease the chances of experiencing car troubles by doing some common sense tasks. This includes checking the weather forecast before departing, driving at a slower rate of speed and giving other motorists plenty of space.
