Stay Safe When Driving with These Items This Winter

The winter season is arriving, and for many of us who drive regularly, that means driving through cold, icy and snowy conditions. These can be some of the worst elements to drive through, and many people can end up stuck on the side of the road, trapped by ice and snow because the vehicle cannot get any traction.

Keeping a few things in your trunk can help get you out of one of these situations, and it is far better to have them at the ready and never need them than it is to end up needing them and not having them.

Salt and sand are two of the ideal things to keep with you throughout the winter. The weight of each item, though not massive, will help the rear end of the vehicle to have enhanced traction. Salt works to melt the ice and snow, and by spreading the sand on that, you will get much better traction.

When you want to make sure your vehicle is ready for the winter, bring it to BMW Portland today for winter maintenance.
