Emergency kits for cars focus of Winter Awareness Week

Posted under Madison motor vehicle accidents attorneys

Wisconsin Emergency Management has deemed this week, November 7-11, as Winter Awareness Week in Wisconsin. This week is focused on winter safety, especially for drivers.

The cold weather brings with it icy roads and terrible driving conditions. Car accidents increase during this weather and it is important for operators of motor vehicles to be ready on the road. Emergency kits should be inside everyone’s cars, according to Wisconsin Emergency Management. These kits can help you survive in a situation where help is not immediately available.

These kits should be filled with necessary items including food, blankets, flashlights as well as a windshield scraper. These items can help the driver and passengers of the car survive if an accident has occurred due to the weather conditions.

When the temperature begins to drop, car accidents begin to rise. If you have been injured in a car accident, please contact the Madison motor vehicle accidents attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C. by calling 800-242-2874 today.
