Tis the Season for Cold and Snow…Are You Prepared to Drive in Winter Weather?

December typically brings us colder temperatures, ice, snow and traffic headaches.  As most Americans begin to travel for the holidays, there will be more people than ever on the roads this season.  Weather can wreak havoc on travel plans, are you prepared to drive in all weather conditions?

An estimated 115.6 million Americans are expected to travel this holiday season, a new record.  With the choices of planes, trains or cars, the overwhelming majority of people will be traveling in their own vehicle.  When you combine an increased amount of cars on the road with rough weather, we need to be prepared for all conditions to keep everyone safe.  This winter, be sure to add a few water bottles, granola bars, a flashlight and a blanket to your car to be prepared.  Here are some additional tips for getting your car ready for all winter conditions and what to do if you are stranded while driving.
