Take a look at the picture attached, from the PennsylvaniaDepartment of Health, to make sure your vehicle emergency kit is up to par.
We also recommend regular maintenance of your vehicle; this includes checking:
– Tire Pressure
– Fluids: Oil, antifreeze, and windshield washer fluid.
– Regularly making sure your vehicle’s heat and defrosters work.
What should you do after driving through snow, ice and brine!?
WASH YOUR VEHICLE’S UNDERCARRAIGE!
The salt particles can get into the hidden areas in the undercarriage. Without proper attention and cleaning, this can lead to rust, decreasing the overall value and longevity of your vehicle.
What NOT to do from the PCTG Crew!
– Avoid using the ice scraper on the paint or body panels of your vehicle – this can scratch or damage them.
– Avoid putting water in the windshield washer basin, this will freeze.
– Avoid parking on streets prior to snow storms – providing better access for road maintenance crews and decreasing the risk of vehicle damage.
– Avoid putting hot water on your frozen wind shield – this can cause the glass to crack.
– Clear your vehicle completely of snow and ice prior to driving.
