Get ready for winter driving

If you are not sure if your auto insurance coverage includes towing and road service, now would be a good time to call your agent and review your policy. Before the seasons change and you encounter icy roads and dangerous driving conditions, you should also take the time to get your car ready for winter. 

Before you set out on the road on a cold and snowy day, you should make sure you have some essential supplies. Keep an ice scraper, shovel, a bag of kitty litter and a few warm blankets in your car. If you get stuck, these items can all help get you out of trouble. You can use them to clear your windshield, clear a path, get traction and stay warm until help can arrive. 

You should have your battery tested to make sure it has plenty of cold cranking power. Don't forget to check your tires and make sure they have good tread and are also properly inflated.  Turn the controls from A/C to HEAT to confirm that you are getting plenty of hot air and finally, fill your reserve tank with window washing fluid (not water) to keep your windshield clean.
