{CLOSED} Giveaway: Road Safety Kit

I love watching the snow fall from the comfort and warmth of my own home.  The feeling is rather romantic.  What is not romantic at all is driving in winter conditions.  This year States that usually don’t get any snow got plenty of it.  My husband was telling me the statistic that pretty much only the state of Florida was free of snow this year.

That’s a terrifying statistic I think.  To suddenly have people who are not used to driving on snow covered roads thrust into that situation must be frighteningly dangerous.  Sometimes inexperience or overconfidence can lead to life-threatening situations.  I will never forget a news story about a family that was stranded in their car for days after getting lost during a snow storm.  Unfortunately, they lost the dad.

This story made a serious impact in my life and I have always made sure our car is full of all the necessary winter essentials:

  • Cell phone and charger
  • Blankets
  • High-calorie, non-perishable food
  • Extra clothing (wool socks, gloves, hats)
  • Small can and waterproof matches to melt snow for drinking water
  • Road salt or cat litter to help with traction
  • Camping shovel Ice scraper and brush
  • Tow rope
  • Brightly colored flag or cloth to tie to your antenna

Please make sure these items are also included in your car.  Accidents are just that: accidents.  You just never know when you will be the victim of one.

State Farm recently conducted a survey about auto insurance and the results showed that people have many questions about what to do after an accident. As you well know, being a smart consumer is one of the keys to saving money, which is why State Farm created the Auto Learning Center, a one-stop resource for all matters related to auto insurance. It’s designed to help consumers get quick, easy-to-understand answers from experts and peers.

  • KellyM

    I don’t have anything! Gives me a goal for the weekend to get some things together.

    • Sara

      I should really have snowpants and boots in my car. I already have a blanket and first aid kit but living in Michigan with winter weather always requires extra layers.

    • Ann

      What a wonderful give-away….please enter me to win!!!

  • Cindy

    I guess we’re missing pretty much everything. Would love to win this!

  • Mary

    I don’t have jumper cables – and that’s stupid because they aren’t all that expensive. I’ve just always relied on the kindness of strangers…and I’m no southern belle! I can change a tire with the best of ‘em!

    Would love this as I travel between MI and WI every other weekend by car. I’ve been saving swagbucks to get a GPS for my poor old van!

    Well, we are lacking a lot. I have blankets, because the heater wasn’t working. Even our scrapper is gone! (we borrowed a car while ours was broken down and then left our scrapper in their car! doh!) We could actually use a whole new car – but a good emergency kit would be really great :)

  • Melody

    This would be an awesome prize! I would like to add to your post that some people may have medical conditions (my son has Type 1 diabetes) and this would mean having some extra items. For him it would be a test kit, insulin, needles and high carb snacks and drinks. Also, wearing medical ID’s are necessary!

    What an awesome topic to post about. THANK YOU! I love your site by the way and read it daily!

    I think it’s easier to list what we do have in the car than what we don’t ! (I’ve got some work to do tonight!!! ; ) ) We have a blanket and a small bag of kitty litter in the trunk. In a pinch I would use my husband’s golf clubs to dig us out and I might be able to find an old fast food french fry on the floor under one of the seats, but that’s about it! Sad, I know!

  • http://debbielynne.wordpress.com debbielynne

  • Thomas A. Schultz

    I am missing small can and waterproof matches to melt snow for drinking water.
    Also, what would be good to have is a candle or Sterno canned heat as an emergency heat source. Sterno Canned Heat is a fuel made from denatured and jellied alcohol. It is designed to be burned directly from its can. Designed to be odorless, a small can about 7oz. will burn for up to two hours. The flame is easy to extinguish by simply placing the lid back on the can. Its primary uses are in the food service industry for buffet heating and in the home for fondue. Other uses are for camp stoves and as an emergency heat source.

    a shovel or snow brush, who knew we’d get so much snow in GA!

  • Cassie

    food and a few other things. We generally store cold weather gear in the van though.

    I don’t have any of these items either! Great idea though.

    I do not have a change of clothes in the car. I do have 3 blankets and food and car repair essentials. I am confident that in Western NC, where I live, the possibility of being stranded for over 6 hours is slim, but you are right that accidents are just that accidents.

  • christopher-georgina d. meredith

    when we lived in VA during blizzard of the century (March 2010), I had clothes, blankets, water, PBJ w/ crackers so if we ever get stranded somewhere, now we live in FL & bec of hurricanes, I pretty much have the same things & to add…always no less than 1/2 tank ful of gas…could be the army training or just having a hubby who, according to him, you never know when you’ll need these things…better safe than sorry ;-)
    I have a now, 7 & 3 yr old boys :-)

  • jose

    Oh it be wonderful to take our 18 month baby and the soon to be born baby on a ride….We have had problems with the old GPS . Wish I can get a new GPS now. This year we have had more snow than in the last twenty years…and its difficult to drive around even when you know the way. Guess I need to get these essentials as back up in case of an emergency.

  • Patricia Merry

    I don’t have a towing cable or a flashlight. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  • Maggie

    I don’t really keep a supply of emergency food in the car. Sure, a few snacks sometimes, but not real supplies. I also remember the story of that family getting lost in the snow and the dad dying. It was so sad. Thanks for raising awareness and doing such a great giveaway.

  • LISETTE

    WELL I DONT HAVE ANYTHING!! not even a shovel Mercedes, can you believe that! Well i know its not safe but I moved from sunny Florida to Madison,wi 4 years ago , at the begining I was oblivious of what the risks were or what were the must haves…later I learned the hard way when my car spinned out of control during a storm! I was coming back from a peditrician appointment for my newborn who was worn with very low weight, thankfully a snow bank stopped me and not another car.I end up paying more than $100 to get my car towed , I didnt have a cell phone at the time,so the police provided their own company.We were broke at the time so paying $100 for anything was out of the question but there was no way around it.I was traumatized after it and decided I would never drive during a storm or even after it till snow had cleared from roads, but sometimes life happens . At the begining of this winter season everyone was preparing for a very big snow storm that was supose to get to us around 7pm saturday so I decided to go shopping before that. I remeber it was the day they had the free wrapping paper and tissue at walgreens. I left target and my intention was to get “the deal” at walgreens but a very white road surprised me when I left the store around 5pm…my daughter now 2 was so happy to see the snow coming down and somehow she transfer some courage to her very frightened mom.. So off I went to venture back home, then my car went off the road again to the other side of the road! I was so nervous and I couldn’t even see where I was, when I call the tow truck they kept asking me where I was but I didnt know…thats were a navigation system comes in handy! I had to step ou of my car and try to look for a street sign..Finally 3 hours later a tow truck show up and took me to my house…so well now I think it time to start gathering all the things required for this kind of weather! hopefully I will win and check off these from my list.

  • Michal David

    Except blanket and extra clothes for the kids i don’t have anything…..(say i know)

    I am missing everything except the big blanket. Wow in reading all of the posts, I need to get with it. I have nothing but the blanket. I’d sure love to get the GPS to go along with the other things I will soon get. Thanks for the story, it has given me much to think about.

    I have almost everything in my vehicle except a shovel. I keep a bag with food, water, clothes but there’s no shovel. Guess I’ll have to invest in a small one. My friend has a TomTom and hates it. I would rather have a Garmin than a TomTom anyday.

    Since I’m from ND, we really do need absolutely everything. Last night the temperature was 35 below zero WITHOUT the wind chill!! So I carry just about everything under the sun….although I don’t think I have any matches. Good reminder!
    My mom also found out she needs a cell phone today (she’s old-school!) as she and my 8 year old were involved in an accident on the way to school. Luckily no one was hurt, but the cars were both damaged. The snow banks are so high here, you can’t see around corners and in parking lots!

  • Ann

    I tweeted about this giveaway.

  • MiddlePrincipal

    I’m ashamed of myself…totally unprepared. I have a cell phone and an ice scraper, but that’s the extent of it. That’s pretty sad. No blankets, food, clothing, can, matches, salt, shovel, rope or colored flag. I’m not very proud of it, either. Bad me!!!!

  • Rachel

    All i have in the van are blankets, looks like i have some emergency stocking to do!

Water, snacks, sunblock, spray bottle, etc. :)

    Thanks for a great reminder and giveaway! Here in Dallas, where it only snows occasionally, we are all remiss in having adequate supplies for the days that it does snow and ice up. We are already at a deficit compared to the northern states as there is no snow removal equipment to help us out…so I’m guessing that many of us shouldn’t even be on the road!! That being said, the only thing in my SUV is jumper cables! I could really use a practical kit such as this.

    I need to update the food that is in the trunk. We’re good about keeping dog food and dog biscuits there, in addition to water, but not so good about “people” food.

    I’d like to suggest that everyone check the condition of the plastic water bottles they store in their trunk. At a recent emergency evacuation seminar I learned that those plastic bottles can become brittle/unstable and can crack or dissolve. The lecturer suggested we store the small “bags” of water that are available from emergency planning websites/retailers, as these remain stable in all weather and temperatures. Those are on my birthday wish list.

We did have a snowstorm a couple of weeks ago and got several inches of snow so maybe I need to get together some of the items and stash them in the trunk.

  • Jennifer D.

    I used to have a AAA road kit in my car, but I must have lost it over the years. My MIL got my husband a safety kit for his car, but of course, I can get stranded…right?

    So all of this to say–I have NO safety equipment in my car and could really use a kit! :)

  • Lisa

    Sadly- i only have a first kit and blanket in there

    I don’t have the blankets or extra clothing. I try to keep my trunk stocked with other items, but this is a good reminder to always have a plan in place especially in bad weather.

  • Melissa

    i could use some food in my car…granola bars, protein bars, etc. that would be handy. good luck to all!

    Sadly, I think I’m missing most of those items, but I do have an emergency kit that has not been touched since I bought it (thank goodness!)

    I am missing a GPS system and air compressor from the winter kit for my car. Right now, about 4pm, it’s 7 degrees outside and going to below zero overnight. I’ve got a 2003 vehicle with 160,000 miles on it. Hopefully it will not break down this winter and leave me stranded.

    I would need to add some non-perishable food items, granola bar etc. But I also think knowing where your cell phone is and making sure you have it charged are essentials when going anywhere. I recently was hit head on and so disorientated that I wasn’t sure what I needed to do, then I saw my cell phone in the pocket of my visor where I keep my insurance papers and was very relieved.

  • Kelly

    I have most of the stuff listed in my car. I keep a towel and extra coat, but not extra clothes, socks. Instead of a battery powered flashlight (the batteries always seem to be dead when you need them) I have a hand crank power flashlight that will also charge a cell phone for 30 minutes and I keep a small tool box with the above listed tools. I have read where a metal coffee can (if you can find one) with a lit candle in it will heat a car enough to keep your from freezing.

    Although I live in FL, we have had some pretty cold temps lately (below freezing). I really should have a blanket in my truck. This was a staple when I lived in the NC mountains. Don’t laugh! I scraped ice off my windshield this morning in the sunshine state…

    We don’t have blankets or a cell phone charger in our car – and, after my husband got stuck in the snow pile up last night for 8 hours, I’m thinking we should add that to our collection.
