Whether the wheels get stuck in the snow or icy roads cause an accident, cars are vulnerable to dangerous conditions during winter months. According to IceRoadSafety.com, there are about 400 to 500 deaths due to ice-related accidents each winter season. To be prepared for unpredictable winter weather, drivers should get their vehicles inspected by professionals to ensure they are intact. Motorists should also store functional equipment in their trunk in case an emergency surfaces; this includes a fully stocked survival kit for those trapped in the snow.
