AAA offers a few tips. Never hit the road without an emergency kit. It should include items like a blanket, water, and tire gauge. Also, give your car a once-over, especially when the conditions aren't ideal. Look at your tires; this is especially important this season.

Before you hit the road, be sure to check tire tread. How worn are your tires? Don’t' forget to take a look at your tire pressure.
