Tips for Safe Road Tripping During the Winter {$50 Visa Gift Card Giveaway}

Are you planning a road trip to visit family during the holidays? I have usually only gone on road trips with the kids during the summer but there are a lot of people who choose to drive to their destinations during the winter as well.  If you are one of them and you are hitting the road this season be sure to check out our safety tips below to ensure you make it a safe experience for all. Special thanks to Hyundai Canada for sponsoring this post.

Pack your First Aid and Emergency Kit: Ensure you have booster cables, a headlamp, fleece blanket, hats, knit gloves and hand warmer in your vehicle, and that there are enough for all passengers. If you are ever stranded and have to wait for help, having the proper equipment to stay warm while you wait can save your life. Be sure to pack all necessary medications and emergency food and water.

Get your Vehicle Checked and Snow Tires Changed: Make an appointment to get your car checked by a mechanic to ensure everything is in order. Get your tires switched to winter tires or consider purchasing winter tires if you don’t have them already.

Check Weather Warnings: Before hitting the road be sure to check the weather reports for any storm or weather warnings. Roads may be closed due to bad weather as well so plan ahead. If possible, avoid leaving if there are warnings and delay your trip until the roads are clear.

Clear All Snow Off Your Vehicle: Before you leave, ensure that all snow has been cleared from the roof, doors, windows, mirrors, and headlights of the car. Snow left on the vehicle can blow off while on the highway and cause accidents. If possible pack a small shovel and keep a snow scraper in the trunk of the car.

Get Wi-Fi in Your Car: If your vehicle doesn’t have Wi-Fi connection already, consider purchasing a mobile hotspot device to stay connected while you are on the road. You can check online news reports, stay in touch via e-mail with family and friends and be ready in case of emergency.

You are now ready to hit the road. Download your favourite family-friendly jams and get the family excited.

Happy driving and stay warm!

    This year we are spending the holidays at home because last year we spent the holidays visiting family in Quebec. We usually go away for Christmas every 3-4 years because it is such an expensive time to travel so we have to save up.

    This year, we are spending the Holidays at home. Just relaxing and recuperating from the stress of the year.

    It depends on what you mean by “holidays.” I spent Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day all at home. I happened to be visiting my parents out of state on Halloween. 🙂

    I am spending the holidays home with my 2 munchkins – 1 is leaving for college/uni in the fall so it’s probably the last one like this for a while.

    Sorry, I sound sad – I’ve begun to realize what will change when she goes away and I am not happy for it. Happy for her but the change not so much.
