Prepare a road safety kit

While no one wants to admit the possibility of ending up stuck in a snowbank somewhere, ensure that you pack an emergency kit with all the essentials, just in case. Include items like jumper cables, a flashlight with extra batteries, a warning triangle, thick blankets, some bottles of water, cans of food and a first-aid kit. A collapsible snow shovel might also be worth putting in your kit.
