Be Prepared for Winter Driving

Manitoba Winter Driving

It is a good idea to be prepared for Winter driving before you head out on the road this season. Driving conditions can change quickly during the Winter months. It is always best to have a number of items in your vehicle in case you get stuck on or off the road.

Be Prepared

It is recommended that you travel with a cold-weather survival kit in your vehicle. Having emergency supplies on hand can be very beneficial if you find yourself stranded in your vehicle during a Manitoba Winter. Cold-weather survival kits should include these items:

  • Candle and Matches
  • Water
  • First Aid Kit
  • Non-perishable Food
  • Booster Cables
  • Shovel
  • Warm Clothing and Boots
  • Flares
  • Warm Blankets

Winter Driving Car Kit

Winter Survival Kits are available at a number of retailers - or easily assembled from items in your home. A good ice scraper is necessary this time of year.

Clean Off Your Windows

Always be sure to completely clear off your vehicle of all ice and snow before you pull out of the driveway. Make sure that windows are free from frost and clear from interior fog. Click Here for advice on how to defrost your windows. A few extra minutes to be prepared for Winter driving will help you to safely travel on icy and snowy conditions. It could make all the difference in keeping yourself and others safe on Manitoba roads this Winter.

How to Get Help

There is help if you do become stranded on Manitoba roads this Winter. If you have an emergency, be sure to contact 911. If you are stranded in the snow, turn on your vehicle's four-way flashers. Ensure that your Exhaust pipe is not blocked by snow, then remain in your vehicle until help arrives. Owners with Mopar Roadside Assistance can reach that service at 1-800-363-4869.

How to Defrost your Windshield

It's that time of year again when the temperatures start to dip and your windshield frosts over. If you're like me, you've probably given yourself just enough time to drive away - and now your windshield is frosted up. Here are a few tips if you are wondering how to defrost your windshield quickly and efficiently.

Defog & Defrost Quickly

Start your engine, crank up your heater and turn on the defrost setting.

Turn on your air conditioner. No Joke! Hot air holds moisture - so use your air conditioning to help pull the moisture out of the air in your vehicle.

Turn off the Recirculation Setting. This will bring fresh air into the interior of your vehicle. Use that crisp, cool Winter temperatures to absorb moisture more quickly.

Open your windows a crack. Opening your window will help exchange to dry outside air with the humid air trapped in your vehicle. This helps speed up the defrosting process a little more.

Remote Start has given Manitobans the ability to pre-start our vehicles and defrost before we drive away. But on mornings that you forget, these helpful tips should get you on the road quickly. Keep an ice scraper in your vehicle and always clear your windshield before driving on the roadway.

Stay Safe and Give Yourself Time

The weather is changing and with it, our daily routines. For many of us, that means getting used to colder temperatures again. One thing we often forget about in the cold weather is our cars. Make sure you take some time to defrost your windshield before hitting the road this winter. And if you find yourself without a scraper or de-icer, don't worry! You can defrost a car window without them. Keep these tips in mind as the temperature starts to drop and your car's windshield becomes frosty.
