What to do in a Winter Breakdown

Winter Breakdown Breakdowns are an inconvenient fact of life, but in freezing winter weather it can quickly turn from inconvenient to deadly. All too often motorists are caught off-guard and unprepared during cold, snowy months without the knowledge necessary to save themselves. Here are a few tips to keep in mind, just in case this ever happens to you.

If you do get stuck in slick conditions, the following actions should be taken:

  • Stay with your car. Do not try to walk to safety.
  • Start the car and use the heater for about 10 minutes every hour.
  • Leave overhead light on when the engine is running so you can be seen.                                              
  • Keep moving your arms and legs to keep blood circulating and to stay warm.
  • Keep one window away from the blowing wind slightly open to let in air.
