What to Do If You’re Stranded on a Highway

Is Your Car Ready for Winter

Rev Up Your Career with Caliber


One of the scariest things that can happen in the winter is finding yourself stranded on a snow-covered highway.

Here are a few of the most important things you can do according to the Department of Transportation:

Hopefully this is knowledge you never have to use. But with wild weather conditions quickly becoming the norm, it can’t hurt to be informed. Good luck out there, and happy holidays.

Believe it or not, winter’s just around the corner. Imagine if you didn’t have any winter attire: no jeans, no jackets, no delightfully tacky sweaters. Chances are, you wouldn’t ever want to leave the house. The same goes for your car. Without proper winter protection, your vehicle can take a real beating, and far too many vehicles do.

Here are a few key steps each and every one of us should take to winterize our cars and ensure they’re nice and cozy throughout the holiday season:

Top off your battery – With your car off, unscrew the cap on the top of your battery and check the fluid level. If it’s low, fill the hole with distilled water, being careful not to fill past the bottom of the cap.

Check your tires –Most tires in use today are rated for all seasons, but if yours aren’t, snow and ice can be very dangerous. Switching to snow tires will give you the traction you need to get around safely.

Use proper windshield washer fluid – Want to avoid smudges and thick layers of ice in one step? Select a windshield washer fluid with an antifreeze solution and you’ll be in the clear in no time.

Pack an emergency kit – Just in case your car leaves you out in the cold, it’s always a good idea to make sure you have flares, blankets, boots, engine oil, washer fluid, coolant, a flashlight and some snacks.

Take the time to winterize your car and you’ll save yourself many headaches in the future. Happy Holidays from all of us at Caliber Collision. We wish you safe roads ahead.
