If you own a car, you should make sure to always keep an emergency kit in it whether or not you travel a lot or far away. Always be prepared and keep a first aid kit in your vehicle as well. We want to remind you from all of us here at Holzhauer Auto & Motorsports Group in Nashville, IL to travel safe this winter and to be prepared at all times.

Among the items that you should pack in your roadside emergency kit, you may want to prioritize cat litter, sand, or salt this winter. These items will come in very handy in the event that you get stuck and need to get some traction.

Sand is the most ideal for adding traction and grit, but cat litter and salt will also work in a pinch. The only problem with salt is that it doesn't really mix with metal due to its rust-causing properties. Cat litter will also work, but be sure to use non-clumping or it gets gooey.
