Safety Tips: Winter Preparation

Put a snow shovel and ice scraper in your car now and that way you'll need it when we get the first freezing rain. I also carry cat litter in my car for providing traction, it's remarkable effective and much lighter than sand. Be sure to double bag it.

Having your car checked by a mechanic is good, buy new tires if you need them. Freeze resistant windshield washer fluid is also important for safe driving in winter. It's the only kind I buy, but I live in Minnesota.

I never needed a scraper when I lived in LA, but I carried a small one anyway in case I traveled to someplace further north on business or pleasure.
