Getting stuck in the snow can be a scary experience indeed. Although there are lots of ways for Crystal Lake drivers to avoid being stranded by the roadside in severe weather, it always pays to be prepared for the worst. At Volkswagen Of Crystal Lake, we're committed to sharing information that can help motorists stay safe all winter long.

Keep A Stash Of Winter Essentials In Your Trunk

When the roads are icy, emergency roadside assistance can take a while to arrive. This makes it best to have a few jackets, blankets, and other cold-weather items stowed in the trunk of your car. It's also a good idea to pack a first aid kit, flashlights, batteries, food, and water.

Stay In Your Vehicle

?Don't try to be the hero by heading out into the cold to find help on foot. It's much easier for rescuers to locate their targets when they wait in their trucks or cars. Although an auto might not feel like an ideal winter shelter, it's the best place for you to be until help arrives.
