The holiday season is upon us and while you’re making plans to travel over the river and through the woods, Tow Jam wants to remind everyone to gear up for winter. It’s true; Texas isn’t exactly a winter wonderland, but whether or not you are traveling to parts known to bring plenty of snow, we want to provide drivers in our community with these tips to make their holiday road trip a success.

 

  1. Get a Check Up – Maybe you’re traveling across the country or you’re just taking a trip across the state. Wherever you’re going it’s important to know your car will be able to get you there safely. Before you depart on your road trip, make sure to schedule an appointment with a trusted mechanic. Have them top off your fluids, take a look at your battery, and make sure the AC will be able to keep the cabin comfortable.
  2. Gear Up Your Car – This step is especially crucial for those traveling into snowy destinations. If you’re facing icy roads, invest in a set of winter tires. Winter tires will help you grip slick roads, although depending on your destination, all-weather tires may be good enough. Replacing your wiper blades will also help maintain your visibility. Ordinary windshield wipers won’t be able to handle clearing auto glass during snowfall, so winter blades will help keep the road in clear view.
  3. Gather Emergency Supplies – Even if you’re just making a trip across town, having an emergency kit in the car can help everyone feel at ease. You can purchase a pre-assembled kit online or in a local auto store. Along with roadside assistance supplies (jumper cables and road flares), make certain that your kit includes kitty litter (helps with slippery spots on the road), flashlights, a spare cell phone charger, a first aid kit, and emergency rations such as food, water, and a warm blanket. Again, keep your destination in mind and stock up accordingly.
  4. Grab a Map – Remember not to rely too much on your technology. Your cell phone or GPS may be great in the city, but when traveling long distance it’s not unlikely to cross into areas with spotty or no service. Have a paper map with handwritten directions nearby to keep you on track and safe.
  5. Get Some Rest – Finally, as exciting as a road trip may be, you still need to be well rested in order to keep yourself alert. Driving sleepy can be as dangerous as driving drunk and no amount of coffee replaces a full night of rest. Do your best not to push yourself to meet a deadline or beat traffic during your trip. Get a good night of sleep before you hit the road and never be afraid to switch off with other drivers or take the occasional break.
