{CLOSED} Giveaway: Road Safety Kit

state farm nuvi {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.

  1. KellyM says:

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

    • Sara says:

      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 says:

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

  2. Cindy says:

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

  3. Mary says:

    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!

  4. nancy says:

    i’m missing everything! i would to win this.

  5. nancy says:

  6. Annie M says:

    I don’t have any of it.

  7. Sarah B says:

    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 :)

  8. Andrea says:

    I’m missing clothes for each family member and water and a gps

  9. Connie says:

    I would a GPS! Thank you…

  10. Adam says:

  13. carol says:

    I need to add waterproof matches

  15. Bill Wilson says:

    I am currently missing jumper cables in my car

  16. Sara says:

    I’m missing road salt and extra warm clothes.

  17. Melody says:

    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!

    Mel

    • Melody says:

      Also, what is missing from my car is a cell phone charger and road salt. More great ideas and thank you!

  31. Lisa says:

    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!

  32. debbielynne says:

    There’s no blanket in my car.

  33. Anne says:

    I never thought to bring a cell phone charger! We don’t have extra water although it was on my list this week to stock up on protein bars for the car!

  34. Oanh says:

    I’m missing non-perishable food and blankets.

  46. Dinah says:

    We don’t have clothes or kitty litter.

  47. Thomas A. Schultz says:

    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.

  59. sabrina sejuela says:

    A set of jumper cables is missing from my emergency kit. reading your post reminded me that I had removed them from my car but I am on my way to put them back right now. Safety first!

  60. Marie Forte says:

    thanks for the plan. would love to win this item

  61. Susan Parks says:

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

  62. Cassie says:

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

  63. Krissylu says:

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

  64. Amy C says:

    I need a blanket for my car…among other things I’m sure! Oh, and a car charger for my cell phone.

  65. jenniffer eads says:

    i would never think of putting a spare pair of clothes in my car for every member of the family!

  66. kathy says:

    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.

  67. Kristy says:

    I’m missing everything but the cell phone charger currently. Eek! Thanks for the giveaway.

  74. alyssa says:

    We have jumper cables and flares in the car, it doesn’t snow in Houston. I dont talk or text on the cell phone if I am in the car, so I don’t have a car charger. It’ll be on my “To Do” list now, you never know what is going to happen!

  75. christopher-georgina d. meredith says:

    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 :-)

  76. jose says:

    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.

  77. Melissa says:

    I don’t think we always have water or food! Thank you!

  102. Patricia Merry says:

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

  103. Maggie says:

    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.

      WELL…….. I DON’T HAVE ANYTHING IN MY CAR. I LIVE IN MISSISSIPPI AND I WAS BORN AND RAISED HERE AND WE HAVE NEVER HAD ANY NEED FOR AN EMERGENCY KIT FROM THE SNOW. SO I AM SO NOT PREPARED. I GUESS MAYBE THE WAY THE WEATHER IS CHANGING SO MUCH NOW I MAY NEED A KIT. I WOULD LOVE TO WIN THIS KIT.

  191. LISETTE says:

    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.

  193. mylifeisu says:

    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.

  194. Jennifer M. says:

    I am missing a flashlight, and I know other things. Living in CA, we don’t pack well for emergencies!!

  197. Jana says:

    Thanks for the info. I have most of the emergency things you mentioned however I never thought of a can for melting snow. I am going to do that right now. I also have a candle in my kit.

  198. JULIA MCINTOSH says:

    FOOD IS THE ESSENTIAL THING THAT NEEDS TO BE IN MY CAR.

    Road salt and extra clothes!

  211. janet says:

    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.

    I think it is a great idea to keep some snacks in the car just in case.

  215. AngelaRS1973 says:

    Well it seems I am missing quite a few items. I guess the most important one would be a toss up between extra clothing and a brightly colored flag.

    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!

  264. Ann says:

    I tweeted about this giveaway.

  265. MiddlePrincipal says:

    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!!!!

  266. Rachel says:

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

  267. Diana says:

    We don’t have any emergency stuff in our car, unfortunately.

    I receive the your emails and am a fan on Facebook. Ironically, I don’t even have a winter kit, so in that sense I guess I’m missing everything. I live in Las Vegas, so rain and snow are extremely rare here and don’t last long when we see them. I DO have a summer emergency kit for my kids in case we ever break down anywhere when it’s 115 out. Water, snacks, sunblock, spray bottle, etc. :)

  354. Joanna Morin says:

    I like CSWM on facebook!

  355. Julie says:

    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.

  356. Charity Martushev says:

    We are missing clothes as well in our car! I have enough for me, but not for the kids that are in my car 99% of the time!

    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.

  469. Kara says:

    Living in WI, I have most of these things in the trunk of my car during the winter months. However, I do NOT have a tow rope or food in my vehicle.

    I actually have a year round “emergency” bag for the kiddos in each vehicle with includes a small can of powdered formula (think freebie sample), bottle, diapers and changes of clothing for each kiddo.

  478. Chrissy says:

    Turns out I just have a bunch of toys in my car. I am working on this today. I feel like I practically live in my car so I should have the necessary items to survive if stuck in my car as well. Thanks for the reminder. My girls thank you too!

  479. NancyW. says:

    I don’t have anything on the list in my car except a fleece throw. Living in Georgia we usually don’t have much need of winter emergency items. 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.

  480. Jennifer D. says:

    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! :)

  481. Lisa says:

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

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

    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.

  514. lori b says:

    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.

  515. Kelly says:

    We’re missing everything, and being from Wisconsin that is really bad!!

  516. Ren says:

    I would love to win this.

  517. Ann says:

    I am from Ga. After our recent unprecedented weather I realize I need all of the items like blanket etc. We had many stranded motorists because we in the South definitely do not know how to drive in winter weather

  518. Bonnie Davis says:

    I don’t have extra clothing in my car, nor do I have a shovel in it. I do think I need to put these in there as I am mostly driving alone. I would love to win this. Thanks to State Farm for sponsoring this contest and you for promoting it.

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.

    I have the jumper cables, shovel, and clothes. Having some of the handwarmers that you shake to activate might come in handy also.

  641. April says:

    I currently carry jumper cables, a blanket, water, and an ice scraper. Sounds like I need more! :)

  642. It’s a good thing I don’t live in Wisconsin anymore! LOL I’d be out of luck if I got stuck in cold weather! I have some jumper cables and a few emergency car items (not much), and as a nurse, I’m embarrassed to say that I have a first aid kit that is almost bare and the few items left in there are EXPIRED…LOL. I really need to stock up on stuff when I have the extra money to do so…or maybe I could just win this give-a-way, and then I could get it a lot quicker! :) I’d hate to know that I was stuck in cold weather, or heck…just stuck period, with my 2 kids.

  643. luba says:

    I liked you on the facebook. I really hope i win it

  644. Kathleen says:

    I travel with my job and this weekend I got stuck without a scraper or shovel in my car. It was awful trying to dig myself out with my hands! This weekend I am purchasing a shovel and am going to build an emergency kit for the car. Lesson learned!

  645. Laurette says:

    I really need to remember to store water and a blanket in my car.

    Sadly, I only have jumper cables in my trunk – everything else, I need – especially with this winter being such a brutal one here.

  648. Betty says:

    *oops wrong email…
    Im ashamed to say our car is missing most of the essentials… but after reading this post i am going to make sure we stock it with an emergency kit… we live in Columbus and get lots of snow, but people seem to forget how to drive when it snows hard

    Well I’m missing just about everything on the list. Good thing I turn to CSWM for great ideas and tips! I’ll be trying to round up those items this weekend considering that my forecast is calling for a chance of snow every day next week! Wish me luck!

  658. leslie says:

    I am in need of everything. I’m going to start getting it organized and put it in the car. Thanks!

  673. Autumn says:

    I never winterized may car this year and need almost everything, though I do have some of the regular emergency items in my trunk. At the very least, I usually throw a shovel in my trunk for the winter and I haven’t even done that yet.

  674. Autumn says:

    I already subscribe in a reader.

  675. Jonie says:

    holy molly….i am missing all those you mentioned…..not even the basic torchlight…..better start getting prepared for this bitter cold week ahead.

    i followed you on facebook too..

  676. Barbara McKown says:

    I noticed you included waterporoof matches to melt snow for drinking water. Here in the Pacific Northwest we do not always have snow to melt so I keep two or three gallons of drinking water in my car. Also, if you have an infant (we care for our grandson) some of those single serving formula packets would be great to have too as well as extra diapers and wipes.

  677. Brittany says:

    I don’t have an extra set of clothing in my car. I guess I should get on that, and start making my own personal emergency supply kit!

  678. theresa king says:

    COMEON GARMIN WINNING WOULD BE FUN!!!

  679. Julie says:

    I usually have bottled water (that is now frozen) so I guess I need to get the matches and a can.

  680. Colleen Gallagher says:

    Jumper cables are missing from my emergency kit.

  681. Karina says:

  688. ShellySinWI says:

    I’m pretty good, but I don’t have matches (afraid the kids would find them) and a change of clothes for everyone (which seems a bit crazy when you have a larger family like we do).

  689. Arlene K says:

    I am missing several items from your necessary winter essential kit such as food and water, cat litter, shovel, tow rope, bright colored cloth and Garmin. I am a widow and travel all the time by myself. The State Farm Roadside Emergency Kit would be a wonderful thing for me. Thanks for the opportunity to win one.

  716. CAmom75 says:

    I would have to say most of the stuff on the list is missing but one thing we have most of the times is a hat and gloves This would be nice to win. I am going to put a blanket in the car and try to round up some other things that you mention. Thanks.
