    Food, water, extra clothes, blankets, first-aid kit, lighter, flashlight, glow sticks, chargers, jumper cables, flares, extra coolant, snow tire chains.

    Thank you GEICO. This is great information for those of us who have no idea what keeps our
    cars safe and protected. I will keep the list in mind when I go for my car check up.

    There are some really great tips in this post. It seems like making sure that my car’s battery is properly charged is the lesson that I need to learn from the most. My car battery dies every winter at the worst times. It seems like if I start charging it more frequently it won’t have that problem as often.

    Its nice to be reminded to do the simple things that will keep us safe and secure while driving, thank you GEICO for being so helpful. Since I am more likely to visit this site than read my car manual I would like to see tips/reminders on routine maintenance under the hood and simple things I can do. Another thing is how to know if you have a good mechanic?
