5 Tips That Could Save Your Life If Your Car Breaks Down In Sub-zero Temps
No joke it's dangerously cold across much of the United States, especially in the Rockford. It's so cold your skin could get frostbite within 10 minutes of being exposed. It's important to remember five tips that could save your life in the event that your car breaks down in these sub-zero temperatures.
The kit should include extra clothing, a first aid kit, a flashlight, a shovel, snacks, and drinking water (just keep it warm.)
Be sure your car's gas tank is at least half full if it sits outside for long periods of time so lines don't freeze.
Let people know where you're going and what route you are taking in case you get stranded in the cold.
If you get stuck only run your engine for 10 minutes at a time to save gas.
Just stay inside if it's not a dire need to leave.
