We all know that some areas of the U.S. can be quite treacherous in the winter. That means if you’re planning to travel to an area with wintry conditions this holiday season, you may encounter elements such as snow, ice, freezing rain, and sleet. While on-the-road safety includes keeping calm and taking your time while driving, there are additional measure you can take before you head out.

A few small precautions you can take include giving your car some time to heat up before you hit the road and making sure your windshield is clear for maximum visibility. Having a safety kit in your vehicle is important no matter the weather, too. Jumper cables, a first aid kit, drinks, flashlights, and other items can really come in handy in an emergency situation.

We also recommend getting routine maintenance before the holidays, and our Jeep parts and service center is ready to help. Tire rotations, oil changes, and other services can ensure your vehicle runs smoothly and you don’t have any auto-related mishaps during the holidays. It’s also a good time of year to consider replacing your tires with a heavier-duty winter option for added traction.
