DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – As we are now officially in the fall season, it’s not too late to think about a winter emergency kit for your car.
Triple A advises drivers to start to collect and put items together a winter emergency kit and to check your car before winter.
AAA offers vehicle inspections at all AAA Tire & Auto locations and you do not have to have a membership or appointment for this service.
“AAA recommends motorists use a simple checklist to determine their vehicle’s fall and winter maintenance needs,” says AAA Public Affairs Manager, Cindy Antrican. “Many of the items on the list can be inspected by a car owner in less than an hour, but others should be performed by a certified technician.”
Here are some examples of what to have in your car during the winter season:
- Snow shovel
- Extra warm clothes
- Ice scraper with a brush
- Window washer solvent
