For the Van Trapped Family
Ice and slush can make roads slippery, and snow can make them impassable. All can leave you and your car stranded for hours or even days at a time, like a recent snowstorm that left motorists stuck on the highway overnight in eastern Virginia. If it happens to you, don't head out on foot for help. The car provides shelter, and rescuers are far more likely to find your car than they are to find you. To prepare for the unexpected and avoid getting stuck in the cold this winter, take stock of our recommendations for items to keep in a car for winter driving — in addition to the emergency supplies that are good to have all year round.
