#WinterWarmUp 2: the emergency kit
Half the battle is in the preparation
If you prepare yourself well for winter driving, you'll have a lot less stress when the weather gets weird. You just never know what's going to hit you over the course of a British season, so you need to be prepared for anything.
First on the list is your emergency kit - and trust me, you'll thank your lucky stars for the jumper and the torch when it all gets a bit real down some dark country lane.
|What you need||Why you need it|
|Jump leads||Don't let the cold stop you before you've started|
|Ice scraper||Once in the morning might not be enough|
|De-icer||Keep things clear all day|
|Warm clothes and blanket||Getting stuck in snow is NOT fun|
|Road map||Phones run out of battery - maps don't|
|First aid kit||A bandage at the right time could save a life|
|Torch||For a country lane breakdown nightmare|
|Sunglasses||You never know - the sun COULD come out!|
|Spare batteries||There's no point having a torch if it's dead|
