Drivers planning to hit the road need to make sure they have plenty of gas. Hitches says, " Make sure you have plenty of gas in your tank... If you do get delays you’ll be able to keep yourself warm.”


With colder weather, it’s important to have a blanket, hat, and gloves in your car so you can stay warm.

Hitchens says having snacks and beverages in the car can help you stay fed and hydrated if you find yourself in a crash.
